      Dean College Completes Major Energy Efficiency Project

      02/23/2015

       

      Franklin, MA (February 23, 2015) – Dean College has completed a major energy efficiency project as one of the founding colleges participating in the Mass College Green initiative.  The project is expected to deliver more than $691,000 in lifetime energy savings and features energy efficiency measures, campus engagement and sustainability components.

       

      “The project is reducing energy costs in our Campus Center, the Science Center and in five residence halls,” said Dr. Paula M. Rooney, the President of Dean College. “The innovative financing approach provided by Mass College Green is helping us reach our sustainability goals by providing a solid investment towards our future.”

       

      The College collaborated on the project with GreenerU, a company that implemented the controls and lighting upgrades to the Campus Center, AW Peirce Technology and Science Center, and Adams, Bourret, Ewen, Jones, and Wallace Halls. A range of energy conservation measures were completed, including mechanical and lighting measures that are aimed at improving energy efficiency across a variety of building types. In addition, behavioral measures have been conducted to engage building occupants, create a sense of shared achievement, and enhance campus-wide sustainable behavior, including the development of “Living Green at Dean: It’s What Bulldogs Do.”

       

      “Energy efficiency and sustainability projects colleges help our colleges keep higher education affordable for our students,” said Richard Doherty, President of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts (AICUM). “This initiative integrates what the Dean faculty teaches and what students and staff care deeply about—a smarter, more environmentally sustainable campus.”

       

      “Recently, GreenerU has been giving special focus to science centers and dorms as high energy buildings whose energy impact greatly relies on the interaction with building occupants,” said David Adamian, VP of Operations and Engineering at GreenerU. “By addressing energy usage in these buildings, Dean College will see reductions in total campus energy usage.”

       

      The Mass College Green initiative is developed through a partnership with the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts (AICUM), MassDevelopment and GreenerU. It is designed to reduce typical barriers to implementation such as lack of funding, limited staffing time and resources, and deferred maintenance. Hampshire College, Lesley University, Nichols College, and Mount Holyoke are other colleges currently participating in the program.
