Princeton’s campus-wide move to decarbonization: Turning the page on carbon-based heating

Universities must act now to decarbonize their campuses, and Princeton is leading the way with a plan for carbon neutrality by 2046. Session leaders demonstrate how Princeton is turning the page on carbon-based heating technologies and moving to a new hot-water energy system driven by electric heat pumps, thermal storage, and geo-exchange -- one of the first in the nation to combine these technologies at this scale. They demonstrate how this plan can serve as a model for other campuses to achieve their climate commitments and align their goals for carbon neutrality with their campus master plans and capital management.
