Rebuild America is a program of the U.S. Department of Energy that focuses on energy-savings solutions as community solutions. This guide focuses on colleges and universities. Each chapter spells out options and provides guidance for implementing projects that can save substantial energy and money. Information is taken from successful projects implemented nationwide. Each section ends with case studies that provide examples of how the nation's colleges and universities are realizing energy savings. Four sections focus on: (1) Project Financing (e.g., financing options and common financial misconceptions); (2) Clean Fuel Fleets (e.g., biodiesel and ethanol); (3) Combined Heat and Power (e.g., system components and system integration and sizing options); and (4) Emissions Markets (e.g., air pollution and climate change programs and opportunities for colleges and universities to participate in air pollution markets).
