…building a low carbon, low energy footprint.
Yellowstone National Park is the largest consumer of energy in the National Park Service with many villages and a vast and varied assortment of aging buildings, many of which are significant to our past contributing to Historic Districts and National Historic Landmarks. Most buildings need energy efficiency improvements including updates to old and inefficient heating systems. Yellowstone strives to inspire energy conscious behaviors, make facilities more energy efficient, reduce the use of fossil fuels for all infrastructure systems, and assess opportunities for renewable energy.
Goals and Objectives
Set a high standard in energy performance improvements and meet or exceed NPS goals for energy management.
Impress upon park employees and visitors best practices for energy conservation to inspire them to conserve energy in Yellowstone and at home.
