The Role of Environmental Attributes from CHP & Carbon Reduction Projects on a College Campus 

02-19-2020 15:31

Summary

A college campus can be uniquely positioned to meet sustainability goals while also generating a source of revenue from carbon reduction and on-site clean energy projects that qualify to generate environmental attributes. As trustees, students and faculty push for increasingly aggressive sustainability goals, higher education institutions are adopting innovative, low-carbon approaches to not only campus energy projects but toward low-carbon investment portfolios that provide a competitive rate of return. Two academic institutions in Connecticut – Yale and Fairfield Universities – are host to Combined Heat & Power projects that qualify to generate Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). This presentation will explore (1) how the universities approach the monetization of CHP RECs and (2) the role of incorporating a spectrum of diverse environmental attributes for clean energy, transportation, renewable fuels and carbon reduction into a revenue yielding investment portfolio.
