Achieving a Carbon Neutral Campus Infrastructure
In order to achieve their ambitious goal of decarbonization by 2035, Swarthmore College carried out the design and planned implementation of new campus energy systems. Learn how to apply their valuable strategies to create a sustainable decarbonized environment for your campus community.
Planning for Higher Education Journal
Campus Energy Master Planning
Higher education institutions can lead the way in reducing energy consumption and advancing carbon neutrality by starting with their on-campus facilities.
Drilling Through the Carbon Barrier
As a model for other institutions, we'll contextualize and detail two of the largest and deepest ground-source heat pump-chiller systems used to unlock campus-wide carbon neutrality—at Boston University and Ball State University.
Renovating a Library So It Exceeds Sustainability Policies
The Neilson Library renovation went above and beyond Smith College’s campus sustainability policy by implementing a sustainability charter, prioritizing health and wellness, and advocating for positive change.
Setting Building Energy Standards
Individual cities, states, and utility incentive programs are going beyond carbon neutral standards to embrace energy consumption limits—this session will present these new strategies as models and options for campus building energy standards.
Sustainability and Resiliency
This session will discuss Rider University's energy master plan, which aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through integrating facility management and future campus development as well as incorporating energy conservation and generation options.
