Green Initiative

Yale University has over 21,000 students and faculty occupying well over 300 buildings in New Haven. It is literally a city within a city, and requires a significant amount of energy to function. The production and use of this energy impacts our climate and community, and has become increasingly expensive as fossil fuel resources become scarcer.

Yale University has embarked on an ambitious energy program to address these challenges—improving the efficiency of its power plants, updating buildings, utilizing emerging technologies, and searching for clean energy alternative sources as part of its energy use portfolio.

Equally important, however, are the patterns and habits of energy use by students, faculty, staff and administrators. The example we set, as individuals and as a community, is also important as the rest of the world tackles its own energy challenges.
