    As part of Princeton University's goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2046, we are advancing our use of geo-exchange technology. Investing in geo-exchange projects, with enough capacity to serve the entire campus, will enable Princeton to phase out nonrenewable energy sources, including natural gas burned today to produce steam heat. Check out our new What is Geo-Exchange? flyer to understand how geo-exchange works, how we are not installing geothermal wells, and how our infrastructure projects work together to advance geo-exchange technology across campus.

    Princeton University is building a new parking garage on campus. Knowing that concrete is one of the world’s top sources of carbon emissions, the University chose a concrete mix that has a lower carbon footprint. But will it pass the test from the University's structural health engineers? This video shows one example of Princeton's impactful Campus as Lab initiative.

    For Princeton University to meet its energy needs, along with its goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by its 300th anniversary in 2046, a complete rethinking is required on how energy is used and supplied in every lab, every office, every dorm room, in each parking lot and garage — even on pathways and playing fields. The groundwork for this massive undertaking is being installed now as the University undergoes one of the most extensive building programs in its history over the next decade.

    Princeton University will undergo one of the most extensive building programs in its history over the next decade — adding some 3 million square feet in new construction to house more students, expand research facilities, and replace aging buildings and infrastructure. Construction on this scale could pose enormous sustainability challenges. Princeton, however, is embracing it as a once-in-a-generation opportunity to lay the foundation needed to achieve “net-zero” greenhouse gas emissions before mid-century.
