The Ohio State University


Custom App to Promote Sustainability


As a prominent higher education institution, The Ohio State University, one of the largest university campuses in the U.S. And because of its size, energy usage was a corresponding concern. While powering hundreds of academic buildings and residential halls is a necessity, the academic facility sought a more green solution. And to continue their commitment to excellence, they strived to become a leader in sustainability.


ENGIE + Sunflower Lab worked together to develop a custom app to help The Ohio State University secure a cleaner tomorrow. A few of the app’s features include

• Energy usage by building
• Electricity/heating/cooling breakdown
• Tips on how to conserve energy
• Earn badges for green activities
• Events calendar for local events for environmental awareness
• News relevant to energy consumption


With the new custom app, The Ohio State University is well on its way to reducing its carbon footprint and being an academic leader in sustainability. The initiative is guaranteed to deliver the following:

• 25% energy efficiency improvement within 10 years
• 676 GHW of electricity/year for 485 buildings, including the largest medical facility in central Ohio.
• 50-year concession contract
• By 2050 the campus will be carbon neutral

“This partnership positions us as an international leader in energy and sustainability and further strengthens Ohio State as a national flagship public research university.” -Michael V. Drake, Former President of The Ohio State University
