The Energy SWATeam's meeting in September involved discussions on 2018-2019 recommendations and 2020 iCAP objective ideas.
Energy iCAP Team
- Energy Conservation and Building Standards (ECBS) SWATeam
- Energy Generation, Purchasing, & Distribution (eGen) SWATeam
- Energy iCAP Team Recommendations Summary
The iCAP (2010) provides the following commitments for energy conservation:
· 20% reduction in total building energy use by fiscal year 2015 (compared to 2008)
· 15% reduction in associated building related emissions by 2015
The iCAP provides the following commitments for building standards:
· all new buildings and major renovations meet LEED Gold Standards by 2011
· all new buildings and major renovations meet LEED Platinum Standards by 2015
· all currently planned new construction and major renovation projects demonstrate at least a 30% improvement in building energy performance over ASHRAE Standard 90.1 for total building energy use by 2015
The iCAP provides the following commitments for space management and growth:
· “no net increase in space” policy for the entire campus by 2012, applicable to all space controlled by campus
This team focuses on the 2015 iCAP objectives for Chapter 3, including:
3.1 The Energy Generation, Purchasing, and Distribution SWATeam, in collaboration with Facilities & Services and topical Consultation Groups, will lead an exploration of options for 100% clean campus energy during FY16 and submit recommendations through the formal sustainability process.
3.2 Expand on-campus solar energy production. By FY20, produce at least 12,500 MWh/year, and by FY25 at least 25,000 MWh/year, from solar installations on campus property.
3.3 Expand the purchase of clean energy. By FY20, obtain at least 120,000 MWh, and by FY25 at least 140,000 MWh from low-carbon energy sources. These targets represent 48% and 56% of our expected 2050 electricity demand, respectively.
3.4 Offset all emissions from the National Petascale Computing Facility (and other successor facilities) by the conclusion of the current period of National Science Foundation support.
