From the East Coast to the West Coast, Northeastern is working to reduce their energy usage and carbon emissions. Mills College at Northeastern was recently integrated into the Boston campus’ EnergyCAP database, which will aid in the collection of the campus’ energy data and track the university’s emissions reduction progress.
Renewable energy certificates, known as RECs, are one way to support renewable energy. But what are they and what do they actually do?
As our routines changed due to COVID-19, our energy consumption on campus has as well. Here are some highlights of the big changes energy usage.
A 50% energy reduction was achieved from the 2015 retro-recommissioning and updating of lab spaces with energy efficient systems at the Egan Engineering and Science Research Center.
Learn how Northeastern retro-commissioned the Behrakis Health Science Center to achieve optimal energy savings.
