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 25% despite a 20% increase in building area.

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 16.8 million square feet of research laboratories, classrooms, offices, recreational facilities, and performance spaces.

Energy is just one aspect of building sustainability. Learn more about U-M’s approach to sustainable building design.
