Bldg. 90
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

The Alliance to Save Energy has developed a pilot Green Campus Program, which has been selected for funding by the CPUC in a draft decision (final decision to be made December 18th).  The program will 1) work with students to develop a campaign to save energy on campus through behavior and operations changes, 2) educate the student body, faculty and staff about reasons and methods to save energy, and 3) reach out into the community to work with students in K-12 schools on energy efficiency.  The program complements another CPUC-funded program on UC/CSU campuses that focuses on energy audits and retrofits on campuses.  Energy savings efforts will initially focus on dorms and student-run facilities such as student unions and some athletic facilities.  We expect that the program will begin in February 03.  Merrilee Harrigan of the Alliance will give a brief presentation on the program, after which you are invited to join us for a discussion and brainstorming session.  ASE would like input from interested LBNL staff (and students) in the following areas:  How can students get feedback on how much energy they are using, and on their progress on achieving their energy-saving goals?  For example, we expect to have dorms competing to see which can save the most energy.  We will have incentives based on how much energy is actually saved, so access to student-friendly information on actual energy consumption is critical.  What are the resources on the various UC and CSU campuses (and Berkeley in particular) that students can access to help them achieve their goals of saving energy, educating the campus population, and reaching out to K-12 schools?
