Welcome to California State University, Chico’s Sustainability Storyboard! The Institute for Sustainable Development has partnered with Lucid Design Group to develop this Storyboard for the campus community in an effort to increase awareness and transparency of utility consumption patterns on campus and to foster an expanded dialogue regarding resource conservation and efficiency.

The Storyboard has been developed as a public portal into the University's progress pursuing sustainability in our campus operations and beyond. It is connected to building-level utility meters, including electricity, natural gas, heated water and chilled water meters, on a dozen campus buildings - including many of our largest academic and administrative buildings, our residence halls and our student union and recreation center.

Built around this 'live' data, which is updated every 24 hours, you'll find information on many sustainability initiatives at Chico State - from LEED buildings to energy competitions in the residence halls, from institutional Climate Action Planning to faculty integration of sustainability into their course curriculum. We invite you to spend some time exploring the Storyboard and the story of sustainability at Chico State!

CALL Goals:

Establish a public point of access to campus building energy and other resource consumption data and foster an expanded dialogue between students, faculty, administration and facilities management regarding campus energy consumption and opportunities for conservation.

Integrate real campus utility data into the sustainability pathway course curriculum with a focus on utilizing cutting-edge utility management software programs and analytics in new and innovative ways.

Explore a range of strategies for engaging building occupants and residents in better understanding their buildings and the impacts of their interactions with them on campus resource consumption and compel them to act for conservation.
