Washington & Lee University

Energy Master Planning

As a signatory to the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, Washington & Lee University commissioned Eneractive to develop a comprehensive Energy Master Plan. The intent of this plan was to guide the university’s strategic and tactical efforts to meet the goals and objectives established in their Climate Action Plan, including a 25% reduction in energy use per square foot by 2013 and climate neutrality by 2050.

The Energy Master Plan was organized as a roadmap to take the university from its current status to a better future state. In developing this plan, Eneractive identified and prioritized numerous opportunities for energy and environmental improvements with the lowest cost and highest payback measures recommended for near-term implementation, higher cost and more complex measures recommended as future capital projects, and emerging technologies recommended for inclusion in future building designs.
