In an effort to reduce energy consumption on each of its five campuses, Oklahoma State University implemented an Energy Conservation Program in 2007.

  • Developed a people-oriented energy management program at each of the OSU campuses.
  • Promotes conservation of electricity, chilled water, steam condensate, gas, and water.
  • Reduce consumption mechanically by adjusting heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system run times to match events and occupancy in buildings.
  • Worked to increase energy awareness of faculty, staff, and students through presentations, promotional materials, website and Facebook interaction.
  • Emphasizes reductions during unoccupied times and promoting behavior changes of "energy consumers" to "energy savers."
  • Established Energy Management and Conservation Policy #1-0520.  and OSU Energy Guidelines with web access.
