PowerSave Campus | Alliance to Save Energy

The Alliance to Save Energy’s PowerSave Campus program is a student-led initiative that educates the campus community on energy efficiency, achieves energy savings, and encourages the next generation of energy efficiency professionals through:

Green Career Training & Mentorships

PowerSave Campus builds pathways to green careers through trainings, mentorships, internships, volunteer opportunities, and project-based learning.  Student interns reach out to green professionals to come to campus for career panels, career fairs, and/or speed networking events in order to shed light on opportunities to work in this field.

Academic Curricula Development

Infusing energy and energy efficiency concepts into academic curricula is a key component of the PowerSave Campus program.  Alliance to Save Energy staff convene a faculty advisory group 1-2 times per year, host an academic infusion online forum, and also work to augment existing and new courses in a variety of departments.

Energy Efficiency Outreach

PowerSave Campus promotes energy efficiency outreach through educational campaigns.  These include but are not limited to green festivals, tabling events, educational posters, and monthly campus newsletters about program activities.

Measurable Energy Savings

Realizing measurable energy savings through research into and implementation of energy efficiency best practices, educational campaigns, and facilitation of retrofits.  Projects include but are not limited to energy and water competitions, fume hood “shut the sash” campaigns, showerhead retrofits, and dining energy assessments.
