Abstract

This project analyzes the effectiveness of emissions and energy usage reduction policies at universities with the goal of encouraging WPI to enact a policy of its own. The primary research investigated the policies of other universities and how these universities created their respective targets. The project team also calculated approximate emissions reduction levels from proposed improvements in energy usage at WPI. The group's findings helped formulate an outline for a feasible emissions reduction policy at WPI.
