The Energy and the Built Environment Working Group investigates and coordinates measures to advance buildings that consume less energy, energy sources that have lower carbon emissions and produce healthier communities, and knowledge about energy-related sustainability.
The IU Task Force on Sustainability (IUSTF) created the Energy and Built Environment Working Group in 2007 to address issues related to energy use and constructing, restoring and maintaining buildings on the IUB campus and in the surrounding community. With the establishment of the IU Office of Sustainability in 2009, the IUSTF transitioned into the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board (CSAB). The Energy and Built Environment Working Group continues its research and programming as one of seven CSAB working groups.
The Energy and Built Environment Working Group strives to raise awareness of IUB’s energy use among faculty, staff, and students and implement strategies through behavior modification and innovative building design and engineering principles to maximize the efficiency of on-campus production and distribution systems as well as reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
