Student teams have been collecting energy-use data from buildings and identify potential ways to save energy. The teams have access to free help from DTE Energy certified energy managers and a toolkit they can use to track and benchmark data. This is part of the DTE Energy E-Challenge Competition for Colleges and Universities, a contest that encourages students to develop innovative plans to help their schools reduce energy waste. U-M’s Ann Arbor and Dearborn campuses are among seven colleges and universities in Michigan participating. This talk will focus on ways their findings could have a real impact on processes and procedures at the university.
