We are faculty, staff, and students who work to improve UW-Stout's energy efficiency, decrease energy consumption, and move toward clean energy.
What does the Waste Reduction Work Group do?
- Recommend the implementation of policies, procedures, and projects aimed at reducing UW-Stout's energy consumption, including institutional and individual behaviors affecting our energy consumption
- Help manage the Focus on Energy program and procedure, maximizing opportunities for obtaining financial rebates
- Provide recommendations for the campus to drive down energy consumption and costs aimed at meeting our Carbon Commitment goals
- Facilitate implementation of approved energy projects (e.g., LED lighting retrofits, renewable energy projects)
This committee is co-chaired by Sarah Rykal, Sustainability Manager and Zenon Smolarek, Associate Director of Facilities Management.
