Stanford: Designing One of the World’s Most Energy Efficient Universities
Track: Energy + Power

Stanford University has just completed a transformational campus-wide energy system – replacing a 100% fossil-fuel-based combined heat and power plant with grid-sourced electricity and first-of-its-kind heat recovery system. Positioning Stanford as a national leader in energy efficiency and carbon reduction, the results are impressive: greenhouse gas emissions are slashed by 68%; fossil fuel use by 65%; and campus-wide water use by 15%. This comprehensive Stanford Energy System Innovation (SESI) system will eliminate 150,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, the equivalent of removing 32,000 cars from the road every year. Expected energy savings to Stanford over 35 years is $425 million.
