Energy Systems and Sustainability Management

As part of Campus Facilities Administration and Services, our focus is to help Syracuse University use resources more effectively. From automated energy and building systems, and energy conservation to campus sustainability programs, we work throughout the entire university community to efficiently create and maintain comfortable, sustainable, and high-performance campus environments.

Energy Management

We make campus building systems run efficiently and on schedules that meet occupants’ needs. From installing automated controls in new and existing buildings to maintaining, troubleshooting, and replacing existing equipment, most of what we do is behind the scenes yet our results are very tangible.

Sustainability Management

Sustainability efforts at Syracuse University are coordinated by the Sustainability Management team in the office of Energy Systems and Sustainability Management (ESSM).

The University also has a Campus Sustainability Committee. This committee comprises faculty, staff, and students and meets twice a semester to review and discuss sustainable initiatives on campus. Another group of faculty oversees the Campus as a Lab for Sustainability (CALS) program.

The Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems and the Environmental Finance Center (and Center for Sustainable Community Solutions) are key partners in sustainability research and outreach at Syracuse University.
