Energy Program

The University of Kentucky has a long and rich history of efforts to improve energy efficiency using building automation, thoughtful design and smart renovations. Beginning in 2016, UK entered into a university-wide, multiyear contract and partnership with Cenergistic, a leading energy conservation and sustainability company to build on our strong foundation. As part of the program, full-time onsite energy specialists work with UK Staff to ensure all facility systems are operating at peak efficiency while also identifying additional opportunities for savings and resolving comfort concerns.

The Energy Program supports the University of Kentucky’s goals within the Emissions Reduction Plan and Sustainability Strategic Plan and is working toward a 20% reduction in energy consumption.
