Fourth annual Shut the Sash competition

Over 200 researchers from three energy intensive lab buildings—Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, and Pharmaceutical Sciences—participated in the fourth annual Shut the Sash competition. Researchers formed 41 teams to compete for the highest amount of energy savings. The results: 6,780 kWh of electricity savings, 210 GJ of natural gas savings, and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 10.6 tonnes, equivalent to six round trip flights from Vancouver to St. John’s Newfoundland.
