New Energy for Campuses: report produced

Article Type: News From: International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, Volume 9, Issue 3

It is widely acknowledged that campuses can set an example for their communities and the nation by implementing alternative energy, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability projects on campus to demonstrate their feasibility and cost effectiveness. They are centers of intellectual power, capable of leading experiments on new technologies, and using these projects as teaching tools and research opportunities to better the education of the next generation of voters, consumers, politicians, and business leaders – people who will be making energy decisions for years to come.

A report outlining how Campuses in the USA are dealing with the challenges posed by energy saving has been produced by Apollo Alliance and Campus Climate Challenge. It outlines the sort of action which may be done in order to maximize energy use in Campuses. The report may be downloaded from: www.energyaction.net/documents/new_energy.pdf
