Energy conservation has become an increasingly discussed topic in recent years as climate change marches onward and energy prices fluctuate. In response to the ever-present problem of energy cost rises, Campus Conservation Nationals was created to promote energy-saving behaviors in universities throughout the United States. UNL has participated in CCN before, but due to several external factors, failed to produce significant improvements to its energy consumption. The purpose of this project was to monitor their 2015 participation in an attempt to identify methods of increasing energy conservation in the future.
