Energy Conservation Efforts (Ongoing)
The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on November 30th, 2017, to discuss the ECONS006 Energy Conservation Funding 2017, and started the assessment of this recommendation. Their official comment was:
Reduce Emissions from Energy Consumption
- Energy Conservation Efforts
- Carbon-Neutral Energy for Campus
The energy on campus must always be balanced, so that energy demand and energy production are equal. To reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from energy production, we can reduce the amount of energy demanded. Thus, we should reduce the energy consumption in as many ways as possible. This is a good primary focus for the beginning of the iCAP implementation because energy savings lead to cost savings.
