Aligning mission and sustainability goals
Partnering directly with WWU’s facilities group, UMC provided support for WWU campus energy.
- Bellingham, WA
UMC has continued working with Western Washington University’s (WWU) facilities group in an effort to align the ongoing evolution of the campus’s energy infrastructure with their sustainability goals. The long-term intent is to provide a path to improve technology and overall operations to prepare the WWU campus’s future direction concerning district energy heating and cooling systems.
To date, UMC’s support includes (1) development of a 10-year utility master plan focused on district heating and cooling for the campus; (2) comprehensive analysis of a biomass gasification system and CHP plant to serve the thermal production on campus; and (3) development and implementation of demand-side energy conservation projects.
