Berkeley Clean Energy Campus Advisory Committee
The Berkeley Clean Energy Campus Advisory Committee provides input and advice to campus leadership as we build a decarbonized energy system for the campus. The advisory committee helps to: guide the campus in making future-focused investments in our aging utility infrastructure; achieve University, State and Federal energy and carbon goals; demonstrate a replicable and scalable clean microgrid model for public institutions; and leverage UC Berkeley’s brain-trust to provide unique living lab partnerships.
The initial work of the Advisory Committee focused on the campus Integrated Resource & Activation Plan (IRAP) - a critical feasibility planning document to pinpoint the best technical and financial solutions required to move to the formal design phase of the new energy system. The Advisory Committee will next provide input into the design, financing and construction stages.
The Advisory Committee includes faculty, staff, students, and campus administrators who provide a broad range of expertise and perspectives that will contribute to the success of this multifaceted and complex initiative. The Committee will meet four to six times a year. Sub-groups of the committee may be formed to address specific topics.
