Transcript of UWM Sustainability Chalk Board

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

Scope 1-Direct emissions from all on-campus fuel combustion (Heat Plant) as well as emissions from fertilizer and from fuel used by UWM vehicles

Scope 2-Indirect emissions from UWM-purchased electricity and purchased steam

Scope 3-Other emissions linked to the campus such as student, faculty, and staff commuting, study abroad air travel, and landfilled waste.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction 2.11/14.00

UWM’s net emissions per square foot decreased
in the last four years due to:
Increased building energy efficiency (Performance Contracting)
Reduced natural gas consumption at the Heat Plant
Increased alternative transportation use (biking, walking, and busing)
Purchase of renewable energy credits.

Building Energy Consumption
UW-Milwaukee’s energy consumption per gross square foot has dropped nearly 27% since 2008, based on weather-adjusted data.

Mid-West Energy Research Consortium
UW-Milwaukee has played a founding and leading role in the Mid-West Energy Research Consortium
(MWERC). Chancellor Lovell, board chairman for the past two years, has overseen extensive growth
in MWERC’s partnerships, grant writing and research, including the design and implementation of a
micro-grid system on the UWM campus.

MWERC helps drive the Wisconsin/Midwest Region and the USA to be energy independent based
on usage of innovative solutions tied to energy-related activities such as; generation, transmission,
distribution, storage, automation, power conversion and energy efficiency / conservation.
SARUP-Institute for Ecological Design
Since the 1970s, UWM’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) has played a key role
in helping Milwaukee envision successful long-term initiatives, including the Lakefront, Park East,
and the Menomonee Valley.
UW-Milwaukee High School Sustainability Camp

In 2012, a newly designed 4-day overnight camp
sponsored by UWM’s Division of Student Affairs. 35 students from around the Midwest emerged on
campus to learn about sustainability through science, art, and humanities.
