Utility & Energy Management

The Energy Services Department is responsible for all utility procurement, management, and inspection for the UGA Main campus, UGA Health Sciences Campus, and surrounding research farms.  We also track utility spending and usage monthly and compare this data to our historical database in order to detect abnormal trending patterns which may indicate equipment issues.  This department also takes the lead in managing capital spending for energy efficiency and energy savings projects, which help to reduce our carbon footprint, save money, and make UGA a more sustainable learning and research environment.
