The University of Dayton campus uses a lot of energy. It is the equivalent of 9,000 homes, or 18,000 cars on the road. UD Renewable and Clean Energy graduate student Ryan Shea decided to bring together Facilities Management, the Hanley Sustainability Institute, and other faculty, staff, and graduate & undergraduate students to create the Campus Energy Team. The team set an ambitious goal of reducing the climate impact of the campus by 26% by 2025. In a little over a year, the Energy Team has completed energy audits of each type of campus building (academic, administrative, athletics, residence halls, and other). The value of this work also goes beyond just climate and economics by providing invaluable experiential learning opportunities for students. For more information about the Energy Team, contact the Hanley Sustainability Institute.
