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

The Office of Sustainability coordinates two energy challenge competition in the fall every year. The challenge lasts 3-4 weeks and pits similar buildings versus one another, with winners determined based on savings relative to their own baseline. The fall 2018 challenge included 66 buildings including residence halls, academic buildings, lab/academic buildings, administrative buildings, and athletics.

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

Indiana University Bloomington uses timers through their Energy Management System to reset temperature settings in the majority of buildings on campus during unoccupied hours. This is 68 degrees in the winter and 76 degrees in the summer.


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

LEDs installed total 1,291 fixtures, including:

Student Recreational Sports Center - 110 down lights
IU Alumni Center - 264 down lights
Rose Hall (residential)- 697 down lights
Ballantine Hall (academic) - 100 LED 2x4 fixtures
IU Health Center - 61 2x4 fixtures
Jordan Hall (academic) - 59 2x4 fixtures

Installations continue across campus and this number is continuing its climb.
