Overview

The University is deeply concerned about the increasing pace and intensity of global climate change and the potential for unprecedented detrimental impacts. Furthermore, we understand that our greatest, most immediate opportunity to reduce our own impact is in reducing our fossil energy usage in campus buildings.

In addition to Brandeis' two solar photovoltaic systems, Brandeis has had a solar thermal system at Charles River Grad Housing since 2013. The system uses solar energy to heat water used in the residence halls, reducing the amount of fossil energy needed. Read more about it here, or watch the video below from the project's developer.
