AT DARTMOUTH

ENERGY METRICS

Dartmouth College is committed to transforming its energy systems to the lowest cost, best low carbon future.  Dartmouth will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by maximizing efficiency and minimizing energy demand in buildings, delivering energy efficiently to buildings, developing a low carbon energy supply, including renewables.

 

Explore our progress in our interactive data dashboard below. 

DATA DASHBOARD NOTES: This data dashboard displays Dartmouth's annual greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption for fiscal years (FY) 2008-2018. Dartmouth's fiscal year runs from July 1-June 30. The data displayed are subject to change. We are actively working to improve the quality of our data and capture as complete a picture as possible of our total waste footprint on campus. 

For more information on Dartmouth's greenhouse gas emissions, see our FY18 Greenhouse Gas Report or interact with the dashboard above. You can click on the different parts of the figure, modify the years of data displayed, share the dashboard with others or download the data using the small small icons in the lower right-hand corner of the dashboard. Note that in order to download some of the data, you must first click on the specific figure then the download icon.

DARTMOUTH'S ENERGY FUTURE

Finding sustainable ways to generate energy is one of the great challenges of the next 50 years. As a microcosm of the world, Dartmouth has an opportunity to meet this challenge, here.

 

In 1898, Dartmouth opened its central energy plant, which burned coal and oil to generate heat and electricity for our small campus. This process also generated greenhouse gas emissions. We still do things more or less the same way we did then. Since 2010, the Dartmouth Sustainability Office has been working with partners across campus to help imagine a new Dartmouth energy system, one that is rooted in our unique setting and minimizes our negative impacts to the region and the planet. A 2016-17 sustainability strategic planning initiative resulted in the Our Green Future Report, setting ambitious new sustainability goals for Dartmouth. Guided by these goals, we have identified what we see as the path forward.

 

Now, it’s time to get rolling! We want to share our excitement and give you an inside look at Dartmouth’s energy future.
