Throughout the 2016-17 academic year, EPA’s Green Power Partnership tracked the collegiate athletic conferences with the highest combined green power usage in the nation. The College and University Green Power Challenge is open to any collegiate athletic conference in the United States.
On April 24, 2017, EPA concluded the Green Power Challenge and recognized the Champion Green Power Conference as well as the largest single green power users within each participating conference as 2016-17 EPA Green Power Challenge conference champions, listed in the below tables. The Champion Green Power Conference for the 2016-2017 Challenge is the Big Ten Conference and the individual school using the most green power is the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Interested in joining the 2017-18 Green Power Challenge? Check out our Steps to Join Green Power Partnership page for more information. To be listed, a conference must have at least two Green Power Partners and an aggregate green power purchase of at least 10 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) across the conference.
This list is current as of April 5, 2017. This is the final update to the 2016-17 College & University Green Power Challenge. Thank you and congratulations to all participating schools!
