We actively track energy usage across our campus and work to reduce the energy use intensity (EUI) of our buildings. While some building types use more energy than others, a low EUI generally indicates good performance.
To reduce our EUI, Argonne implements a number of energy-efficiency strategies and technologies throughout the campus, including:
- LED-lighting upgrades
- ENERGY STAR-certified and FEMP-designated equipment and electronics
- Waste heat recovery
- Daylighting and Lighting controls
- Enable power management setting to shut-down electronics when not in use
- Allocate savings from energy and water efficiency projects to invest in future efficiency projects
