Abstract

This project involved studying energy consumption in the dorms. A typical dorm room has two televisions, one refrigerator, two computers, and lighting. We found that many students already have good energy habits and that many devices in the dorms are Energy Star approved. Some of largest impacts that can be made would be installing building automation systems to control lighting so it is not constantly on and encouraging students to unplug devices not in use.!
