The Energy and Engineering (E&E) team has three primary functions:
- Operate and maintain safe and reliable utility services for campus facilities.
- Drive the university towards intelligent and sustainable energy usage.
- Promote awareness of engineering requirements and decision making based on facility life cycle costs.
E&E's mission supports AU's Climate Commitment and goal to become carbon neutral by the year 2020.
E&E is a highly diverse and technical group comprised of five distinct functional teams:
- Energy Conservation
- Central Plant Operations
- Electrical and Life Safety
- Building Automation
In line with the department's goal to promote engineering requirements and life-cycle cost decision making, the E&E team oversees the AU Design and Construction Standards Committee.
