Delta Force

To reduce energy use across UVA’s nearly 18,000,000 square feet of building space, the UVA Delta Force Program in the Office for Sustainability works as an internal performance contracting program that increases energy efficiency in buildings and achieves energy savings. Delta Force targets high-energy buildings that present opportunities for energy savings, funds and implements those projects and recovers the investment through utility savings.

Through this model, Delta Force has invested $22 million in energy projects and has saved $63 million and 237,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions (MTCDE) since 2009.
