Stanford announces an innovative new approach to meeting its energy needs that will make it one of the world's most energy-efficient universities. The comprehensive new system incorporates solar power for electricity, combined with heat recovery, to allow the university to exceed the aggressive greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals of California's landmark AB 32 Global Warming Solutions Act. It eliminates 150,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually, the equivalent of removing 32,000 cars from the road.
