Housing & Dining Services

Dining Facilities uses a large portion of the total campus energy. CU-Boulder has five dining facilities on main campus and Williams Village - Libby, Farrand, the Center for Community, Sewall, and Darley Commons.
Initiatives to reduce energy and water use in dining facilities include:
- Kitchen audits – energy and water tracking in individual kitchens
- Implementing a pilot kitchen hood control project
- Spring Air in Sewall Hall: these hoods allow for greater control over temperature, air change volume, and after hours turn off.
- Focusing on layout of kitchen equipment
- For example, not putting freezers next to ovens
- Purchasing Energy Star equipment where available
