Energy Reduction and Sustainabilityexecute plan with incentives for participation

  • The Energy Programs office has hired an energy technician position to assist in managing building temperature controls systems for schedules and setbacks, and identify energy savings opportunities in buildings.  We are currently working with the Office of Sustainability to fill a position to work on energy behavioral management and broader sustainability areas to benefit KU with measurable energy savings from building audits and other behavioral outreach programs.  These two positions replace functions that were provided under the former ESP contract, and will help KU achieve measurable reductions in energy consumption on campus.  This position closes Sunday April 12, 2015 and we should be completing this project next quarter.
