Down in the Boiler Room
Wallace, Dan
New England Journal of Higher Education, May 2018
In the New England region, where temperatures range from below 0 to over 100 degrees, heating and cooling can present a major opportunity to improve sustainability statistics of a campus. Overt changes such as improving windows come to mind, but recent advancements in boiler technology and strategies for working with the heat of the sun and the cool of the earth can provide powerful means of reducing emissions quickly. With the 2020 deadline to hit objectives for the Presidents' Climate Leadership Commitments, which were created by the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment in 2007, something as mundane as a campus boiler system can help colleges meet climate goals and offer hands-on research at the intersection of environmental studies and engineering, the author argues.
