    The idea of pooling resources to increase bargaining power is not new. But it is being newly applied to renewable energy purchases. Now, no matter the size or location of your institution, you can harness the benefits of a large-scale renewable energy solution. Join this webinar to understand the opportunity to team up with other organizations for an aggregated large-scale renewable energy procurement, allowing your institution to achieve step-change improvements in electricity cost reduction, price risk mitigation, and carbon emission reduction. Get insights from higher education leaders who are excited about sharing lessons learned from their renewables aggregation project during case a study presentation as well as audience Q&A.

Join this webinar to learn how the program works and how to apply for this support.

Participants are asked to have their smartphone/tablet ready for an interactive activity that will be part of the webinar.

  • Dec 14 2016 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

    You know those feelings you get after attending the AASHE annual conference and other sustainability conferences – inspired, motivated, a sense of belonging, perhaps even giddy to return to campus to do "the work"? In light of the U.S. November elections, we at AASHE are aware that now more than ever is time for our community to come together to remember the awesome (and non-partisan) work we're doing on campuses and beyond. Let's end 2016 with a good dose of motivation to keep us going through 2017.

    In the spirit of the winter holiday season, invite some of your colleagues, make some cookies and tea, and join Marcia Chatelain, Anthony Cortese, Leith Sharp and Meghan Fay Zahniser (they'll be sporting ugly winter sweaters) for an hour-long virtual, video event that aims to unify us despite the perceived division that the U.S. national election has caused. The work we do as campus sustainability professionals is breaking down walls and building bridges. It is rooted in a sense of togetherness and results in demonstrable change. It's tough work but critically important.

    During difficult times, being in community helps us find strength and determination to stay the course. We hope you'll gather some colleagues around the virtual fire and join us on Nov. 14. After the webinar, you'll be sent a set of resources that will connect you with some action-oriented efforts supporting the overall sustainability movement.
