UVA has set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25%, relative to 2009, by 2025. The Senior Associate Director of Utilities and Energy is responsible for the procurement, generation, and distribution of energy and utilities to more than 500 buildings encompassing over 16 million gross square feet at UVA in Charlottesville, and for helping the University meet its energy and sustainability goals. UVA’s electric energy is procured from Dominion Virginia Power with a minor fraction generated by on-grounds solar panels. UVA’s fossil fuel portfolio consists of mainly coal and natural gas, supplemented by oil. The natural gas infrastructure is owned and operated by the City of Charlottesville and purchased on the open market. Coal is purchased from a contracted supplier and transported to UVA via rail. Currently, if UVA wants to eliminate coal, there is a gap between how much natural gas UVA can receive from the City, and the University’s total demand. The three project teams assisted the Energy & Utility Team in developing multiple approaches based on the main objectives of the University and Facilities Management. The cost-effective methods meet current and projected energy needs of the University of Virginia while achieving UVA’s sustainability goal.
