We develop strategies and policies to support efficient operation, maintenance and renewal of UC's energy.
ESU supports the university’s diverse asset base and helps to chart a path to carbon neutrality with increased procurement transparency. Program areas include wholesale electric, retail load (e.g. campus energy efficiency and renewable energy), natural gas and biogas procurement and development, management of environmental attributes (e.g. carbon allowances), university legislative and regulatory representation on facility issues, and the purchased utility database.
