Welcome to our Clean Energy Campus

Within eight years, Berkeley plans to switch to a new clean and resilient energy system that will phase out fossil fuels and demonstrate cutting-edge technologies and creative financing. For decades, Berkeley has led the world in climate solution technology and policy research. Now, the campus will be powered by an energy system that sets the standard in sustainable, resilient infrastructure.

Why now?

Berkeley wants to lead the way to a clean electrified campus energy system by 2028  

  • Making future-focused investments in our aging infrastructure
  • Achieving University, State and Federal energy and carbon goals
  • Demonstrating a replicable and scalable clean microgrid model for public institutions
  • Leveraging Berkeley’s brain-trust and providing unique living lab partnerships
