The Energy and Water Conservation Coordinator searches for any and all opportunities to conserve energy and water in the dining and residence halls. They also design and hang up posters with tips on how to be sustainable residents, conduct audits on facilities, compare residence hall energy meter data each month, and improve the residence hall energy usage dashboard, all while coordinating with the intern team to complete tasks.
- Coordinating “Unplugged,” a UCB residential energy-saving competition that runs through the month of February. This interactive dashboard monitors energy usage in real-time to show how much residents are saving! The competition includes Units 1, 2, 3, Foothill, Stern, Clark Kerr, Channing Bowditch, and Martinez Commons.
- Hosting organic Laundry Detergent Giveaways which motivate residents to purchase eco-friendly laundry products. They host these events at Units 1, 2, and 3, reaching 4000+ students!
- Attending trainings, as part of the Energize Colleges cohort, on a variety of topics that are then applied to the residence and dining halls. Topics and skills include Energy Systems Overview, Auditing, Energy Management, and Energy Policy Trends.
