Did you know that the average deferred maintenance backlog for campus buildings has grown to over $100/gsf, posing budgetary, reliability, and enrollment risk to many institutions of higher education?

Leading institutions recognize the value of their facilities and campus environment in attracting, retaining, and teaching students. Investing in a modern, safe, energy-efficient, and student-friendly campus can pay dividends.

A phased approach to Campus Transformation means that improvements can be designed and implemented around each school’s master plan and budget, while enriching the campus with living laboratories, student engagement opportunities, and sustainability showcases. The right partnership will integrate sustainability education and workforce development with infrastructure improvements and energy optimization.

As a strategic partner to more than 800 higher education institutions across the U.S. and Canada, Siemens is widely recognized for its approach to campus transformation. We can help transform your campus environment to address your triple bottom line objectives. By focusing on infrastructure upgrades, operational efficiency, and distributed energy, Siemens helps drive out costs, address deferred maintenance, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Since its founding in 1949, the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory—a research unit of Columbia University located 15 miles north of the campus on a forested 157 acres overlooking the Hudson River—has facilitated the study of the complex environmental issues facing the planet, with a focus on sustainable development. Now, appropriately, its use of solar power is crucial to a university-wide goal of reducing carbon emissions by 35 percent in the next three years.

Last summer, work was completed on two solar arrays, each located on farmland northwest of the campus (to prevent having to cut down acres of trees at LDEO) owned, operated and managed by AES Distributed Energy. By entering a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) contract, Columbia was able to design, finance and install solar generation where the cost of the system is funded by the energy savings resulting from the overall project, allowing the university to have the renewable generation solution at no upfront capital cost.

Designed by Siemens, this state-of-the-art system will provide LDEO with 5.8MW of solar power, enough to meet 75 percent of the campus’ electrical needs and to trim its energy costs by up to $200,000 annually. Not only does the system reduce Columbia’s carbon footprint, but it also provides a valuable income source to the working farmers of upstate N.Y.
