We help colleges and universities implement smart, comprehensive programs – large and small – that meet higher-ed’s unique and evolving needs for energy efficiency, sustainability, and climate and facilities solutions. Whether you need to reduce your energy bills or your carbon footprint, whether you need help meeting your commitments under the Presidents’ Climate Commitment or addressing deferred maintenance concerns, GreenerU can help.
Sustainability is a challenging concept to implement. It brings together energy and water consumption, behavioral change, transportation, communications, dining, recycling and a host of other issues such as rankings and reporting. Without a comprehensive, focused approach, it is difficult to make real progress.
GreenerU provides the guidance and expertise that can help you achieve your sustainability goals. Whether via targeted support and increased capacity for your sustainability staff, specific campaigns, or even a fully staffed Sustainability Office, GreenerU is a cultural change-agent, creating awareness, collaborating for action, and communicating results.
The GreenerU team has deep expertise with many years of experience in implementing energy efficiency and clean energy programs. In the context of an overall sustainability approach, we can help assess your energy and water priorities, design solutions, and then implement those programs across your campus – from classroom buildings and residence halls to labs, dining halls, athletic facilities, and administrative offices.
We understand campuses, and we can help you improve yours through:
Figuring out your college’s sustainability and energy action agenda is the first challenge. Determining how to pay for the implementation phase is the second. As a full service implementation partner, GreenerU works closely with our clients to create innovative financing arrangements such as energy efficiency PPAs, endowment ready financing vehicles, third-party financings, and large-scale renewable energy financing structures that can benefit from federal tax provisions and state incentives.
