A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency:
---

A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution:

Goshen College has a computerized building management system to regulate temperature in all buildings. Almost all of the floor space in the campus buildings uses timers for temperature control. This can drastically improve efficiency by limiting energy use in locations which do not require heating at all times.


A brief description of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and other energy-efficient lighting strategies employed by the institution:

Goshen College uses light emitting diodes (LED)s in multiple lighting applications around campus including the elevator lights. In 2014 Goshen College installed LED lights in major parking lot areas.


A brief description of passive solar heating, geothermal systems, and related strategies employed by the institution:

Goshen College has a solar hot water collection system to provide supplemental heating of domestic hotwater for the Recreational Fitness Center


A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution:
---

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment, and systems with high efficiency alternatives:

Goshen College is in the process of replacing all fluorescent light-bulbs with more efficient LED light-bulbs.
