This report explores electricity consumption of undergraduate students living in selected residence halls at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The purpose of this study is to identify areas of energy waste and to promote viable options for resource conservation. This report will address pertinent background, assessment methods, results and analysis of two energy surveys and data collected from WPI's first Energy Savings Competition. The paper will also provide recommendations for future energy conservation initiatives on campus. We hope to establish a precedent for individual, energy audits and annual energy competitions aimed at reducing WPI's carbon footprint.
