Energy Services and Sustainability / Office of Energy and Environment
Energy Services and Sustainability (ESS), an element of the Facilities Operations and Development department at The Ohio State University, serves as the university energy and sustainability office. Working in concert with the Office of Energy and Environment (OEE) and the President and Provost's Council on Sustainability, ESS develops and coordinates the implementation of energy and sustainability planning, education, and programming in support of the university’s core goals: Teaching and Learning, Research and Innovation, Outreach and Engagement, and Resource Stewardship. The ESS mandate spans energy management, sustainable materials management, climate management, green building, and outreach efforts. The office is the hub of energy and sustainability activities for students, faculty, staff, and the greater Ohio State community.

Advancing Ohio State's national role in solving global energy issues, while promoting environmental sustainability, is the mission of the OEE.
OEE facilitates research and curriculum collaborations and sustainable energy initiatives among the campus community and with external stakeholders.
OEE supports faculty who are researching energy options and developing alternatives to inexpensive fossil fuels and the environmental problems they cause; promotes energy's importance to Ohio's economic future; advises on government policy for energy and environmental research issues; and supports interdisciplinary and collaborative funding proposals.
