Energy Management

The Energy Management Program improves the energy efficiency of campus buildings to reduce costs and support U-M’s sustainability goal of reducing greenhouse emissions.

Since 2006, energy use in general fund buildings has decreased by 22% while building space has increased by 2.7 million square feet!

Through energy projects and operational improvements, such as energy conservation measures, our professional staff takes a team-oriented approach to saving energy. Regional Energy Managers are strategically located to cover the 150+ general fund buildings that represent 15.9 million square feet of research laboratories, classrooms, offices, recreational facilities, and performance spaces.
