Energy Leadership Programs that Serve the Needs and Priorities of Education
Energy Leadership is a cash flow positive energy conservation program designed to fund schools and university needs from current energy expenditures with sustainability in mind. Our holistic approach examines your challenges through a tiered impact assessment, customized based on specific needs. The program engages student leaders and staff in a meaningful and collaborative way.
Energy Leadership Program Elements
STEP 1: Strategic Energy Planning
Begins with a commitment to change from senior leadership and an Impact Assessment. We focus on what’s important and work collaboratively with you to identify greatest areas for impact: operating costs, campus amenities, student engagement, student internships and community partnerships.
STEP 2: Leadership With Focus
We help you hire the right Sustainability Manager based on a talent profile and our years of experience and provide through training on energy leadership and management concepts with organizational change techniques.
STEP 3: Student Engagement
People use energy, not buildings, so the awareness and cooperation of all campus stakeholders is improvement to create an impact and a sustainable program. Your Sustainability Manager will provide personalized and appropriate communication program messages to your stakeholders. The program also supports student internships.
STEP 4: Measurable Impact
Energy Leadership is a way to significantly address financial pressures, aging buildings, space management, and a path forward to update campus amenities and fulfill the vision of your master facilities plan.
