Dorm Energy Efficiency Project (DEEP)
Brown’s Office of Sustainability partnered with GreenerU on a pilot program to improve energy efficiency and promote sustainable behavior in dorms. The project began with infrastructure improvements and outreach programming in Diman Hall. Each dorm room in Diman Hall received equipment that allowed residents to control their own heat. GreenerU and our office then developed a targeted engagement program that taught students how to use these controls and why this was important. Through this process, DEEP seeks to ensure that students are comfortable while also reducing Brown's energy use and carbon footprint. The DEEP report further explains the methodology and results of the program.
