Green efforts

As MSU moves to reduce energy consumption and transition to more renewable sources, it is clear that the university’s hundreds of buildings must operate more efficiently. To do this, Infrastructure Planning and Facilities is leading the way with several significant energy-conservation initiatives. These will build the foundation needed to make the transition to renewable energy sources and meet campus energy-conservation goals.

The part we play

IPF handles energy production, conservation and education for the campus community. Our staff:

  • provides electricity, water, heating and cooling,
  • uses the newest energy-conservation technology for designing and constructing new buildings,
  • monitors energy usage across campus,
  • educates campus customers about how they can become more energy-efficient,
  • inspects existing buildings for energy savings and
  • repairs and updates buildings to streamline energy efficiency.
