Energy and Environmental Engineering serves the University community with design solutions, project management, and regulatory guidance for projects ranging from hazardous site cleanups to renewable energy opportunities to energy infrastructure and green building consulting. Services are provided to match each project’s needs, from full-service project design and management to consulting in support of researchers and project teams with more limited needs.

The expertise and experience of staff from the Energy and Environmental Engineering section covers a wide range of technical areas, including:

  • Site clean-ups
  • Local (CEQR), State (SEQRA), and Federal (NEPA) environmental review
  • Review of academic research to document probable environmental impacts
  • Environmental site assessment (for real estate transactions or change in site use)
  • Spill and storm water pollution prevention plans
  • LEED consulting, documentation, and design support
  • Air dispersion modeling
  • Water/wastewater treatment
  • Energy infrastructure – steam and chilled water systems
  • Renewable energy technologies
  • Municipal site plan approvals and variances
  • University approvals and funding justifications
  • Grant support for energy research projects
  • Project documentation and closure reports

Some example projects include:

  • Environmental Assessments and Impact Statements for research-focused development of campus energy infrastructure projects
  • LEED Project Documentation and Training
  • Site Plan approval documentation for campus development
  • Remediation of former agricultural “spills”, petroleum spills, mercury spills, decommissioning of former nuclear sciences research reactor, and clean-up of former waste disposal sites.
  • Grant preparation for energy-related projects; environmental assessments for research projects seeking State or Federal funding
  • Review of, and consulting on, campus real estate transactions
  • Project management of remote campus energy projects
