Energy SWATeam (Proposed)
- Sustainability Working Advisory Teams (SWATeams)
The Energy SWATeam is a new team combining the efforts of the Energy Conservation -Building Standards and the Energy Generation, Purchasing and Distribution SWATeams.
The Energy SWATeam is a committee of faculty, staff and students who track progress and recommend action on the iCAP objectives related to energy conservation and generation. The team explores energy conservation opportunities, changes to building standards for sustainability, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions with regards to energy generation, purchasing and use. The team’s experts are available to discuss opportunities and recommending initiatives for reducing our carbon footprint from energy demand.
This team focuses on the 2015 iCAP objectives for Chapter 2 and Chapter 3, including:
2.3 Strengthen centralized conservation efforts focusing on building systems, to achieve a 30% reduction in total campus buildings energy use by FY20. This includes meeting the LED Campus commitments.
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.
3.3 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.
