Worcester, MA – Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) Gateway Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center at Gateway Park (Gateway Labs) has achieved a 33% electrical reduction in its first summer after a series of improvements completed by GreenerU. Equipment has been upgraded to the latest ASHRAE and ANSI standards, and efforts are underway to maximize each individual’s awareness of personal impact on lab energy use.

The turnkey implementation of GreenerU’s GreenerLabs program addressed key engineering and behavioral issues around fume hood flow controls, lab safety, and non-disruptive building operations. GreenerU estimates diversion of approximately 907 MTCO2e per year as a result of these efforts.
