    Dear Provost Andreas Cangellaris:

    On behalf of Illinois Campus Sustainability Working Group (iWG), I’m sending you a recommendation on energy conservation funding, which was made by Sustainability Working Advisory Group on Energy Conservation and Building Standards (SWAT-ecbs). The recommendation was then evaluated by iWG

    Energy conservation is vital to maintaining our energy savings and emission reductions and has a strong payback. iWG suggests that the Provost’s Office considers this recommendation when reviewing Facilities and Services’ budget for FY19. Attached please see the original recommendation made by SWAT-ecbs and the evaluation of by iWG.

    If you have any questions about the recommendation, please let us know. We would appreciate any responses regarding your perspective on this recommendation.

    Thank you for your consideration and support to campus sustainability.


    Best regards

    Ximing Cai
