Lowering Energy Consumption Through Dorm Competitions

GSBM: Project Management Class, Spring 2012

Students: Paul Huang, Seamus Lovelace, Andrew Kercado, Alex Khamudis

The Project Management team developed a plan to host an energy competition within the campus dorms. The goal of the plan is to reduce energy consumption in the dorms by 10-20%, support the goal of reducing campus-wide energy use by 10%, and educate students on how to save energy in their daily lives.
