Energy Management @ U-M
A division of the Utilities and Plant Engineering organization, Energy Management strives to fulfill the University's commitment to minimizing energy consumption and containing energy expenditures.
With more than 30.6 million square feet of building space, the energy needed for heating and cooling, lighting, and power is substantial. This amount totaled more than $111.9 million for Fiscal Year 2007 alone, and will increase in the years ahead as more buildings are added and fuel costs rise.
This website describes the programs and activities Energy Management engages in to create energy-efficient building operations and promote energy conservation practices throughout the University. Our programs are managed by a dedicated staff of professionals; in addition, we are supported by a number of departments and skilled trades that collaborate and cooperate in the mission of maintaining high performance and energy efficiency.
In 2004, this outstanding teamwork led to the U-M receiving the Energy Star Partner of the Year Award for Leadership in Energy Management. An Energy Star partner since 1997, the U-M was honored to accept this award—one of the most prestigious bestowed by the EPA—and other similar kudos over the years as a recognition of its commitment to energy conservation.
