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:

On many of our campus buildings, we are using automated building controls to turn off lights and reduce heating/cooling loads during "unoccupied mode". We hope to continue to install these controls as well as conduct retro commissioning on older buildings. We are also strategically replacing older, inefficient light fixtures with LED fixtures to reduce energy loads, especially in areas where lights are on long hours throughout the day/night. All of these types of projects are typically awarded when extra funds are made available.


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

As stated above, UNG is replacing many older, inefficient light fixtures with LED fixtures to reduce energy loads, especially in areas where lights are on long hours throughout the day/night. When building new spaces or during renovations, all lighting is LED when possible.


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

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:

This replacement occurs during renovation projects or when funds are available.
