Reinvestment of Energy Savings Will Fund Additional Projects

MIT is making rapid progress towards its energy reduction goals. Several projects were completed through the MIT Efficiency Forward program. More efficiency projects are underway and others are under consideration for implementation.


New Construction

Completed in June of 2010 is the new home for the Sloan School of Management, Building E62. This building is the greenest academic building on campus. Also completed in 2010 is the David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, Building, 76.

Building System Retrofits

Many buildings on campus are currently receiving lighting enhancements to reduce their energy usage. Among these are a group of buildings in the northwest sector of campus.

Behavior Change Measures

In early 2009, the Campus Energy Task Force launched a series of education and awareness campaigns to promote individual behavior changes that encourage the community to adopt more sustainable practices and reduce energy use on campus.

  • Reduced lighting use, e.g. lights out program
  • Personal computer power management feature deployment
  • Dorm/office/lab electricity competitions
  • Fume hood sash management, "Shut the Sash"
