Energy Conservation Projects

UBC’s Energy and Water Services (EWS) is responsible for several energy projects and programs that are saving UBC significant amounts of energy and associated operational costs.

In the 2014/2015 fiscal year, UBC reduced campus electrical use by 6.7 gigawatt hours (GWh), equivalent to shutting down our Vancouver campus for two weeks. We also saved 75,000 gigajoules (GJ) of natural gas, equivalent to taking 780 cars off the road.

Here are some of the projects that have contributed to energy savings and efficiencies at UBC.
