The modernization of campus infrastructure and energy systems presents significant opportunities for higher education facilities to attract new students and reduce utility, operation and maintenance costs. Most institutes of higher education must deal with a patchwork of old and new equipment, varying levels of operational efficiency and the lack of a campus energy management system to control overall energy use.
Campus energy conservation policies and infrastructure play a role in the ability of schools to attract and recruit undergraduate and graduate students. Increasing awareness of environmental impact and the need for energy and infrastructure development has created a generation of students considering environmental impact as part of their decision-making. Vanguard can develop infrastructure and energy efficiency plans such as reduced lighting, electricity, fuel consumption and water use. These plans provide a cost effective roadmap for education institutions to provide a quality-learning environment for faculty, staff and students.
