"Chapter 11: How to Maintain Energy Conservation Initiatives and Buy Clean Power: Strategies for Campus Energy Users"
Author: Simpson, Walter
Published In: Electric Restructuring and Utilities Deregulation: A Facility Manager's Guide
Date: 1998

Describes strategies that can be employed to maintain or enhace energy conservation and efficiency programs on campus as the era of deregulated electricity approaches.  Covers getting involved in the public policy debate, developing a purchasing policy committed to energy conservation, implementing measures that increase campus load factor and flatten load profile, including energy services in the power purchase, dedicating a portion of the savings from lower rates to energy efficiency projects, insisting on rate structures that do not undermine energy conservation, using life cycle cost-benefit analysis, and making efficient design and construction of new buildings and facilities a priority.  Includes a multi-step process for buying clean, green power.  Appendix reprints the State University of New York at Buffalo Electricity Purchasing Policy, which lists specific principles dealing with energy efficiency, conservation, and clean power.
