UCalgary announces climate change plan

Greenhouse gas emissions to be cut 45% by 2015


 

The University of Calgary announced a plan today that would see its greenhouse gas emissions reduced by 45 per cent by 2015. To meet that target the university will be largely abandoning reliance on the province’s power grid, which relies heavily on coal and university boilers will also likely be scrapped. Instead heat and electricity will be generated by a cogeneration plant that will use a natural gas-powered turbine. Additionally, buildings will be retrofitted to maximize energy efficiency and evening classes will all be held in the same building.
