A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

Students from Eastern have conducted EnergyStar Portfolio Manager benchmarking for over 400 of Connecticut's 1050 public Schools, 100 municipal buildings and over 150 state agency buildings. In addition, staff members have regularly testified at Legislative hearings and co-chaired legislative committees on sustainability topics such as electric vehicle infrastructure, biofuel diversity, CHP and energy efficiency. Eastern staff members serve on the boards of the CT GBC, AEE CT, and many other state energy related task forces and organizations. Their membership and contributions to the organizations are supported by student interns from Eastern. Student interns in Sustainable Energy also conduct energy audits for local K12 schools.

The website URL where information about sustainability partnerships is available:

Eastern Connecticut State University conducts much of its sustainability outreach through the Institute for Sustainable Energy, an on-campuse grant funded application center focused on public policy, educational outreach, energy solutions and public information. Over 80 students have served as student interns at ISE in the past 7 years.
