Stanford University: The Building Energy Retrofit Programs. Green Revolving Funds in Action: Case Study Series
Flynn, Emily
Sustainable Endowments Institute (NJ1)
Stanford University's Energy Retrofit Program was created in 1993 to target resource reduction and conservation focused projects on campus. Fahmida Ahmed, Associate Director of the Department of Sustainability and Energy Management, says that Stanford has been investing in sustainability and energy-efficiency since the late 1970s, longer than many colleges and universities in the United States. In keeping with that tradition, Stanford University's President John Hennessey highlights sustainability as a core value of the institution, and the campus operates two green revolving funds. (Contains 2 tables and 25 endnotes.) [Additional funding for this case study was provided by the David Rockefeller Fund, HOK, John Merck Fund, Merck Family Fund, Roy A. Hunt Foundation, U.S. EPA Green Power Partnership, and Wallace Global Fund.]
