Energy Conservation and Demand Management

Conservation at Brock University — Whether earth, air, energy or water, there are strong connections between how we use natural resources and the impact this has on the environment.

Within Facilities Management at Brock University, we’ll be working hard to help you and the University to conserve water and energy and to further develop a University community that supports the health of our environment. These are the building blocks of our conservation initiatives and commitments to meet the needs of the community through sustainability.

By making a few simple changes to our everyday consumption of resources, we can all help to preserve and protect our natural environment for the future.

The University is in the process of commissioning the Plaza Building, a building designed to be LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) registered, which will save significant electricity, water and heat when compared to a conventional facility. In Canada, only 65 buildings were certified as LEED accredited buildings in 2006.
