Energy Conservation Incentive Programecip-color-logo

In 2013, the provost established the Energy Conservation Incentive Program (ECIP). This program encourages energy conservation through behavioral and structural changes of academic units and cooperation of building occupants. The ECIP measures energy conservation in buildings as the percentage difference of energy usage during the most recent fiscal year compared to the previous fiscal year after adjusting for heating degree days. Building energy consumption is tracked online in the Energy Billing System (EBS). New users may request EBS authentication from Facilities & Services Utilities & Energy Services (UES) Division.

Each year, eight campus buildings receive ECIP awards in two separate categories. The Energy Advancement Category is for buildings whose energy reduction is the result of central funding from a significant energy conservation project. The Occupant Action Category is for buildings that have not benefited from substantial energy conservation projects in the last fiscal year. Winners recognized by the ECIP program receive a financial award corresponding to the reduction of energy usage they recorded from the previous year. ECIP awards may only be given to state-supported buildings, and winning does not disqualify buildings from future ECIP awards.
