Each year, the United States consumes excessive amounts of energy that is wasted through transmission, heat loss, and inefficient technology. These losses cost consumers money and increases carbon pollution. The answer to combating climate change, cleaning the air and cutting energy costs is simple: we need to become energy efficient.

Renewable Energy

Every month, Stevens solar panels keep more than 10,000 pounds of CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Solar Panels on Campus

Stevens has installed photovoltaic solar panel arrays on two of the largest roofs on campus, the Schaefer Athletic Center and Samuel C. Williams Library. We have solar energy projects on a carport over the 8th Street parking lot, behind Davidson Lab and on the Jonas Hall roof.

Energy Efficiency at Stevens

Stevens Institute of Technology has committed itself as an ENERGY STAR Partner in higher education, joining the ranks of over 250 other universities and university systems. ENERGY STAR is designed to help institutions save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.


As an ENERGY STAR Partner, Stevens Institute of Technology will measure, track and benchmark energy performance. It will also develop and implement a plan for energy efficiency to ENERGY STAR standards. Stevens is committed to educating students, faculty and staff about ENERGY STAR.


Smart Grid Installation at Stevens

Stevens seeks to enhance its facilities with the installation of a Smart Grid. The Smart Grid is a collection of technologies which enable a transformation across all power sectors for a better, more energy efficient tomorrow.

Benefits of Smart Grid Technology

SmartGrid installation at Stevens yields many benefits that promote the university's sustainability initiative, including more efficient transmission of electricity, reduced operational cost for utilities, increased integration of large scale renewables, and improved security. It also allows Stevens to respond quickly and intelligently respond to grid peak management events and reduce demand charges. Submeters give operations staff the ability to accurately monitor and measure campus buildings' energy usage.
