Energy Conservation

The University of Michigan (U-M) has a long-standing commitment to conserving electricity and fossil fuels to the maximum extent possible, consistent with the educational and research missions of the University. Since the inception of this energy conservation effort in 1973, the U-M has saved an estimated $78 million in energy costs.

This section explains some of the current practices that U-M has used to fulfill its ongoing commitment to energy conservation through engineering modifications and educational outreach efforts. It takes more than just engineering changes to make this energy conservation effort successful; there are actions taken on a daily basis to conserve energy for a more sustainable future.

Based on the U-M's ongoing commitment to energy conservation, additional projects will be added to this section as they are successfully implemented on campus. For more information on any of the topics in this section, please contact the Department of Occupational Safety and Environmental Health or visit our Web site at www.oseh.umich.edu/.
