Carbon Neutral By 2025: UC Davis Taps Into the Transformative Power of Data
In 2013, UC Davis as part of the University of California system had an ambitious goal: Net zero greenhouse gas emissions from the campus’s building and vehicle fleet by 2025. University of California, Davis was the first major university to pledge carbon neutrality, and with more than 1,000 buildings comprising a total of 11.3 million square feet, it’s a high bar to clear. In early steps toward carbon neutrality, the university embarked on a few large projects with clear benefits, retrofitting large plants and buildings to operate more efficiently. But when the obvious projects had been tackled, UC Davis turned to the PI System to identify opportunities for using data to drive more efficient use of resources.
