Northwestern Cuts Energy Use in the Battle of the Buildings

From September through November 30, 2016, Northwestern competed in the U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR's Battle of the Buildings, a national competition to reduce energy use in buildings. Over the course of the competition, the building saved more than 228,000 kWh of electricity.

On March 8, Northwestern will host a screening of Death by Design, a documentary that explores the startling environmental and social impacts of the electronics industry. The screening will take place at 7 p.m. at the McCormick Auditorium in Norris University Center. This event is part of the One Earth Film Festival, which runs March 3 through 12 at venues across the Chicago area.
