Welcome to green.tulane.edu

At Tulane University, the environment is much more than a topic you study in class. It's bigger than any one department, group, or program. We are trying to be conscious of the environment in every aspect of university life and work.
Tulane Unplugged 2017 runs from September 25th-October 8th.  Volunteer to be an Energy Advocate and lead your res hall to energy savings.

Tulane Building Dashboard

Tulanians in thirty-five campus buildings can use Tulane’s Building Dashboard to monitor their building’s energy use in real-time.

On the Building Dashboard, you can see your building’s daily energy use curve, as well as its energy costs and climate impact. You can compare campus buildings and follow the Tulane Unplugged energy conservation competition. There is also advice for saving energy in different building types: residence halls, laboratories, and offices & classrooms.
