The Campus Energy Student Video Contest, challenges students from IDEA member institutions (like UBC) to create a short video about their campus energy plant, focused on district energy and/or combined heat and power (CHP).
Energy & Water Services had an operational need to provide heat to the university community and reduce emissions, and researchers in the Faculty of Applied Sciences had an interest in related research. Together, they were able to create a platform where not only operational goals of reduced greenhouse-gas emissions, operational efficiencies and reduce costs were achieved, but researchers were given direct access to lab space within the facility for collaboration on initiatives for mutual benefit.
