Honeywell, Carleton release energy plan for university’s campuses
June 19, 2018 | By Jillian Morgan
Ottawa’s Carleton University has released its latest sustainability plan. The plan, jointly developed with Honeywell, aims to reduce energy and water consumption across the university’s campuses.
The 2018-2021 Energy Master Plan is focused on facility conditions, energy utilization and sustainability ratings, analysis of energy and water use and building retrofits to reduce energy consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Darryl Boyce, assistant vice-president of facilities management and planning at Carleton, said the school plans to engage faculty, staff and students in the plan. It will also facilitate research opportunities within the Faculty of Engineering and Design.
“We now take a more holistic sustainability approach to our renovation projects, as well as when planning new buildings,” Boyce said.
The plan includes the construction of a co-generation energy plant, LED lighting replacement and the introduction of a Green Engagement Fund, intended to support smaller programs which have the intent to educate or engage our campus community on an element of sustainability. The university will also explore private-sector partnerships to take advantage of emerging technologies. www.carleton.ca www.honeywell.com
