    Hi All,

    Whoot whoot!

    A day short of the half-way point for the competition and we blew right past the previous yearly total records for participation of 142 & 182, These kids are making it happen!

    We were negotiating with private certified and Greek housing, but ran out of time. Next year we should be able to add them and clear over 1000 students participating.

  3. ECBS SWATeam Meeting Minutes

    On Wednesday, May 2nd, the ECBS SWATeam had their final meeting of the 2017-18 school year. Eco-Olympics received two different grants for funding and had many strong participants. They have also registered for Quad Day and are planning methods for improvement. The Freezer Challenge is making steady progress in terms of awards and sign-ups. Paul is working with Joyce on contacting a solar company for the ECEB metering project. Finally, the team worked on revising their recommendations for energy conservation funding.

    On April 13th, 2018, the ECBS SWATeam held their 13th meeting of the school year. They discussed the status updates for the funding energy conservation recommendation, as well as the green labs coordinator recomendation. They also conducted new recommendations for ESCO projects and Deferred Maintenance backlog. Eco-Olmypics is in its final week and is finishing strongly, and the Freezer Challenge has had significant progress with registrations. Paul will continue to work with Joyce Mast on the ECEB net zero energy project.

  5. ECBS SWATeam Meeting Minutes

    On March 8, 2018, the ECBS SWATeam had another team meeting where they listened and provided constructive criticism to a presentation on imagery for several energy conservation projects from On the House. Eco-Olympics has made great promotion progress and has advanced from the initial stages to the running stages, with 16 participants already signed up. The team also discussed the target of 10 year paybacks for ESCOs. They are considering recommending more ESCO projects on buildings on campus for utility reductions in buildings that consume large amounts of energy and haven't had retro-commissioning yet.

  6. ECBS SWATeam Meeting Minutes

    On January 19, 2018, the ECBS SWATeam discussed updates on the Freezer Challenge, Eco-Olympics, and the Illini Lights Out program. They also brainstormed methods for the departments to become more invested in energy conservation. They are broaching the idea of the departments receiving payback for their participation or possibly charging departments for their energy usage. The team members will research into peer institutions and what they are doing on this issue. The ECBS SWATeam also wishes to build more awareness for energy conservation in residential facilities and in the campus community.

  7. ECBS SWATeam Meeting Minutes

    The ECBS SWATeam had their sixth meeting of the year on November 30. A SWATeam member, Dave Boehm, gave a presentation on the background of building maintenance issues. Marian also attended a Campus Master Plan meeting, and the team used the information obtained to talk about how to achieve greater energy efficiency, such as potentially with residential/dining hall buildings, fume hoods, etc. The progress made on the energy conservation imagery project with the American Advertising Federation, on the freezer challenge, and on the Eco-Olympics were also discussed.
