Question 13.0 (4/12/2011):Wolstein Research Building

One building on campus accounts for just over 10 percent of the university's energy consumption. Which building is it?

The answer was B: Wolstein Research Building.

The Wolstein Research Building consumes about 10 percent of the university's energy each year due largely to research activities and related needs.

The Biomedical Research Building is a close second as an energy consumer for similar reasons.

Case Western Reserve University as a whole is committed to sustainability and offsets areas of high energy demand with LEED-certified buildings, recycling programs and locally grown food in its dining facilities. Learn more about campus sustainability initiatives.
