Colleges & Universities


The energy industry has undergone an incredible amount of change in the last decade. This transformation has forced colleges and universities to rethink their approach to energy procurement and consumption. Leading institutions are taking advantage of new market-based energy systems and new technologies to reduce energy costs, stabilize energy budgets and achieve sustainability objectives.
