Energy Challenge

The Energy Challenge

The Energy Challenge is an annual initiative to reduce energy consumption campus-wide. To spice things up, individual buildings will compete for who can reduce their energy usage the most through simple behavior modifications. The winners of the challenge will earn a celebration party, their name will be listed in the Energy Challenge banner permanently hanging in the Campus Center – and most importantly, the rewarding feeling of knowing they reduced their carbon footprint the most! 

This year’s Energy Challenge will take place September 30 through October 18, 2019, and will feature four competing buildings:

  • University Tower
  • North Hall
  • University Library
  • Campus Center

Description of the video:

My name is Dylan Patterson.
I am the energy intern with
the IUPUI Office of Sustainability.
And I'm here to talk about
the first IUPUI Energy Challenge.
And that is a challenge among the
buildings here on campus to reduce their
energy use based on behavior
change of the people that live and
work in those buildings.
So that can be done by turning off
lights when you leave the room,
turning off the water
when you're not using it,
using full loads of laundry
rather than half loads.
The overall goal of the challenge is
to reduce energy use of IUPUI's campus
through behavior change.
And we'd like you to do your part and
reduce your use, and try and
make IUPUI a more sustainable community.
