MIT Commits to Efficiency and Conservation in Buildings

In order to reduce electrical use on campus by 34 million kWh over three years, MIT will employ numerous strategies to meet its goal.

New construction projects will incorporate LEED building and sustainable design features

  • Highly efficient chiller system technologies
  • HVAC system rightsizing and efficient technology choices
  • Efficient and proper lighting technologies
  • Lighting controls, occupancy sensors, day lighting sensors, etc.

Building System Retrofits

  • Lighting relamping and reballasting
  • Lighting controls
  • Data-based commissioning
  • Compressed air system enhancements
  • Variable frequency drives
  • Chilled water system optimization
  • Fume hood system air volume reductions
  • Demand control HVAC systems

Behavior Change Measures

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