Utilities and Energy Management is continually striving to increase efficiency and make other improvements to help the University reduce its carbon footprint. In fact, our total plant related CO2 emissions are 10% lower today than they were in 1990 even though our utility plants serve 40% more building spaces. What is even more impressive is that our CO2 intensity has decreased by 38.6% since 1990 (see chart below). Our decisions need to balance reliability, operating flexibility, customer demand, efficiency and sustainability. While we can never ignore the other concerns, we are giving sustainability more consideration today than ever before.
