This program will help reduce energy consumption in laboratory buildings through strategic equipment upgrades and peer outreach. The CEF will fund a program manager to run a pilot program that 1) involves individual laboratory members in identifying opportunities for efficiency in their laboratory and promoting efficient behavior among their peers; 2) upgrades inefficient laboratory equipment and techniques and 3) encourages labs to turn equipment off when not in use, and to retire unnecessary or duplicate equipment.
