CONSERVE TO PRESERVE
VCU's energy conservation initiative
VCU is a major university and academic health system. It takes a lot of energy to educate tomorrow’s workforce, care for the community, and conduct research that improves lives. That’s why VCU is deliberate in how we utilize energy -- from simply changing how we behave to implementing complex technologies that help us identify where we need to improve. Energy conservation is everyone’s responsibility.
