Three Zeros Roadmap Charts the Way Forward

What do the next five years look like for Carolina sustainability? The 2020 Three Zeros Roadmap and Action Plans, to be published later this spring, will use lessons learned to formalize specific pan-campus strategies for each of the three zeros. The focus of year one is greenhouse gas, as seen in the chart above. The Climate Action Plan, also set for release later this semester, will be a key component of the published Action Plans.

Annual Energy Savings Initiative Reduces GHG Footprint

Winter break energy savings strategies, begun in 2016, continue to reduce campus-wide energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Campus building partners, along with Facilities Services teams, plan for decreased energy use in unoccupied campus buildings by using a variety of HVAC control strategies. The results are impactful -- saving 7,900,000 kBtus of energy in December 2019 alone. The graph above shows the impacts of the energy savings initiative for Morrison Residence Hall for Dec. 23-Dec. 31, 2019.
