University launches sustainability and energy innovation partnership
Ohio State has entered a new era of sustainability and energy management
The university’s Comprehensive Energy Management Project officially launched on July 6. Approved by the Board of Trustees in April, it will improve Ohio State’s energy efficiency while advancing the next generation of sustainable energy solutions. In the first 10 years, energy efficiency on the Columbus campus will improve by at least 25 percent.
On July 6, the university transferred management of the central systems that heat, cool and power the Columbus campus to ENGIE Services, which will operate these systems on behalf of Ohio State Energy Partners (OSEP).
