Energy Management

Energy Management & Tracking Site provides energy data for campus along with updates to other energy initiatives.

The Utilities Department manages the data and works to improve the efficiency of utilities generation and distribution.  They also support other energy gathering initiatives along with our partners in the Office of Sustainability to help engage and inform our campus and community on our quest to become a more energy efficient and environmentally friendly campus.


Our recent Quad Residence Hall Enhancements have led to an increase in building energy efficiency, a decrease in water consumption, and an overall improvement in comfort levels, as displayed in the graphic below.

The Building Performance Improvement Initiative is a campus wide collaborative effort to reduce our carbon footprint, improve the efficiency of our building systems, and increase the comfort of our community. The program is a driving force behind WFU policy, budget, and behavioral changes that make a difference in every Demon Deacon’s life.
