The fourteenth annual Higher Education Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Best Practice Awards competition (at CHESC 2018) is being made possible by the Higher Education Energy Efficiency Partnership, this competition is meant to:

  • Highlight the achievements that California campuses have made through innovative and effective energy efficiency projects and sustainable operations.
  • Showcase specific projects as models to be used by other campuses to achieve energy efficiency and sustainability goals.
  • Provide campus staff with a compendium of Best Practice projects that could be transferable to their campus.

Case studies detailing previous energy efficiency awardees are available on the Green Building Research Center website.

Please note that community college campuses are encouraged to apply for the California Community College Board of Governor’s Annual Energy and Sustainability Awards instead of this competition.
