Jan. 31, 2012— According to an energy data summary released by the University of Wisconsin System Administration, UW-River Falls was the most energy efficient four-year campus in the UW System during the 2010-11 academic year. Energy efficiency in this study is measured by the number of British thermal units (Btu) of fossil fuels, electricity, and overall energy used per gross square foot (GSF). UW-River Falls was the leader in efficiency in all three categories:
"Increasing energy efficiency is truly a campus commitment," says Michael Stifter, director of facilities management at UW-River Falls. "Fortunately we also have some good projects in mind, so I don't see us resting on our laurels."
UW-River Falls ranked first in efficiency in the use of electricity and overall energy use in 2009-10. UW-River Falls ranked third in fossil fuel efficiency that year.
