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

energy contests, green awareness, email campaigns, outreach, education, retrofits, schedule changes, green office program


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

Loyola Marymount University has timers for temperature control within the campus based off class schedules and office hours of the professors. This energy management system allows the university to schedule building temperature depending on its occupancy.


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

LED lighting is currently used around the campus in landscaping, and landscaping features such as Shea Terrace. In the past two years, there have been two complete building changeouts to LED. Two parking structures have upgraded their lighting to LED along with all parking lot and street lighting. Loyola Marymount University is continuing to introduce LED lighting across the entire campus.

N/A


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

N/A


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

As things burn out, standardize with efficient LED lights, energy star, progressive energy saving switches, systems, standards for high efficiency.
