University of Baltimore
Baltimore, Maryland
Project Background
The University of Baltimore (UB) is striving to
become an urban leader in smarter, greener
growth, while also applying due diligence
to the education of its students as future
leaders with a global, socially responsible
outlook. Developing students’ capabilities
as future generators of sustainable value
for business and society at large – and
setting a good example for them on their
own campus – helps establish an inclusive
and sustainable global economy.
The University established a campus-wide
Sustainability Task Force, representing
students, faculty and staff and focusing
on a wide array of issues and solutions
as UB transitions to a more sustainable
future. So far, the task force has led efforts
to bolster UB’s recycling efforts, measured
and analyzed its carbon footprint, and
guided the campus in the best use
of human capital to promote public
transportation for its commuter population,
alternative energy sources and so on.
Strategies & Solutions
One of the University of Baltimore’s most
critical sustainability initiatives is reducing its
energy consumption. To that end, it awarded
an energy performance contract to Energy
System Group (ESG) that will cut energy
consumption by 30 percent in less than two
years, surpassing the Governor’s goal of a
15 percent statewide reduction by 2015.
Energy Systems Group has developed
a comprehensive package of energy
conservation measures to address energy
and water usage which includes a new
chiller system, new boilers, new lighting
and controls and improved building
envelope. One of the most visible results
will be a series of skylight units on the
University’s Academic Center, where
photovoltaic solar panels will capture
sunlight to produce energy. The projected
savings from these upgrades will finance
the cost: going green will pay for itself.
