A brief description of on-site renewable electricity generating devices :

There are three on-campus locations with demonstration-scale renewable electricity generating devices. The Marguerite Kent Repass Ocean Conservation Center at the Duke University Marine Lab uses geothermal pumps for heating and cooling, solar panels for hot water, and photovoltaic rooftop panels to convert sunlight into electricity. The Home Depot SMART House uses solar panels for hot water and photovoltaic as well.

Duke Environment Hall, the 70,000-square-foot new home of Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, opened on April 10, 2014.The five-story glass-and-concrete building, located on Circuit Drive on Duke’s West Campus, incorporates start-of-the-art green features and technologies inside and out. It has been designed to meet or exceed the criteria for LEED Green Building platinum certification, the highest level of sustainability. Solar PV provides up to 9% of the buildings energy needs.

In 2011, Duke installed 45 solar-thermal panels on the roof of the Bryan Center Student center that provide 30-40% of the hot water needs of the building.
