SBU Wins Association of Energy Engineers Award
Stony Brook University and Stony Brook Medicine have been announced as recipients
of the Association for Energy Engineers (AEE) Institutional Energy Management Award
Each year, the AEE recognizes individuals, organizations and projects that lead the energy management industry in efficiency, automation, data analytics, policy, supply, resiliency, sustainability, and more. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Conference, taking place from September 21st through 23rd at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. During the event, energy professionals from across the globe unite to learn about the latest energy-saving strategies, services, and technologies.
This prestigious award also falls on the heels of the announcement that SBU will receive the New York Power Authority (NYPA) ‘Outstanding Commitment to Energy Efficiency’ award this year, and reiterates the University's commitment to a reduction in energy consumption through efficient energy practices.
The University is currently in the process of updating our existing energy Master Plans, which will identify new opportunities for energy efficiencies. SBU has also recently invested in a Clean Energy Master Plan, with the intent to identify the viability of onsite renewables as well as study the feasibility of achieving a goal of 100% renewable energy.
Congratulations to the Facilities & Services, Campus Operations & Maintenance and Sustainability Department teams on this well-deserved recognition.
