Energy Conservation Checklist for Universities and Colleges.
Association of Physical Plant Administrators of Universities and Colleges, Washington, DC.
Several specific success stories are included here from institutions that have had energy conservation programs long enough to establish meaningful statistics. They illustrate why it is not unreasonable for most institutions to meet the federal objective of a 15% reduction in energy consumption, even if 1973 is used as the base year, but with some allowance made for new space added that year. A comprehensive list of suggestions primarily taken from existing programs at approximately 35 institutions is suggested as a cross-fertilization of energy conservation ideas. Other ideas solicited from federal agencies, utility associations and private industry are included. The suggestions are categorized broadly. There is no attempt to separate the design/construct ideas from those that can be applied with little or no capital outlay through budgeted operating funds. (Author)
