Resource Consumption Visualization Project

Year: 2012

Grant Amount: $36,100

The Resource Consumption Visualization Project explored the potential for creating a web-accessible visualization of campus energy and water consumption. This visualization would enable the campus community to become aware of the trends and peaks (highs, lows, averages, deltas), which is the first step in developing sustainable conservation practices and participation across campus. The project provided research opportunities for graduate students and undergraduates, and forged first-time partnerships between campus departments.

Information about campus energy and water usage is currently invisible to campus members. Making this information visible to the campus community is a foundational piece in beginning both awareness and conscientious usage of natural resources.
