I have decided to focus my senior seminar research project on energy use in Kaufman at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. It could be argued that energy use and associated pollution is the central environmental problem of our time. With this in mind, this project was conceived as a research topic that would document current energy use and make suggestions for minimizing energy use in Kaufman Hall through research highlighting electricity, natural gas, and water use. When Kaufman Hall is renovated using green building principles, future students can compare energy utilization with this baseline data.
