Incremental Change Is Key for Campus Decarbonization
Only 11 of the 1,100 global higher education institutions that have signed the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment have achieved carbon neutrality. So where do the other 1,089 institutions begin?
In this article available to District Energy magazine subscribers, Bryan Brashear, HDR energy transformation leader, and Andy Sutherland, HDR senior project manager, cover the key factors affecting carbon neutrality and how incremental change can be the key to achieve decarbonization in higher education. Included is a fascinating case study from Western Michigan University, which has long partnered with HDR to understand their emissions and improve their power generation efficiency.
