For Educational Facilities
America's colleges and universities are a driving force in the global green revolution. And their contributions include more
than just great ideas. Thanks to initiatives like the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment, Campus
Climate Change and others, administrators and students are integrating environmental sustainability into everyday campus
For facilities managers on America's campuses, the pursuit of environmentally sustainable buildings is more complicated. While
LEED principles including LEED for Multiple Buildings and On-Campus Building Projects certainly provides a roadmap, these
individuals must contend with the unusually wide array of buildings that typically occupy a university landscape. Beyond
dormitories, computer labs, libraries and classrooms, colleges and universities often operate their own power and water
distribution facilities. Bigger schools also have medical centers and biomedical research laboratories, stadiums and arenas,
agricultural buildings and highly specialized scientific laboratories. Each of these buildings has its own distinct power
needs, and its own distinct opportunities for energy savings and energy efficiency.
With decades of experience and the industry's broadest offering of electrical distribution equipment and services, Eaton is
uniquely positioned to help colleges and universities effectively manage these diverse power needs, which can lead not just to
greater cost-savings, but to greener, more sustainable learning environments as well.
