UCSD ESW students are working with Housing Dining Hospitality (HDH) to measure the carbon footprint of the Keeling Apartments, one of many student housing buildings, through measurement breakdowns of energy usage by appliances within the building. In addition, ESW students are working with the student population living in the Keeling Apartments to record daily student lifestyle choices that affect the energy usage of the building as a whole. Using these measurements, ESW will make recommendations to HDH regarding new appliance options or ways of handling current appliances in a way that will reduce the total energy usage, as well as make recommendations to the students in an effort to help make students more aware of their impact on the large-scale carbon footprint in a way that encourages them to make minor lifestyle changes when useful and able.
