Oberlin partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to install a comprehensive suite of sensors for monitoring environmental performance.

The premise behind the AJLC’s extensive data monitoring system is that real-time feedback on ecological performance increases awareness, connectedness, and motivation to act on the part of both building occupants and facilities managers.

Our goal is therefore to make the flows of energy, cycling of matter and interactions between the built and natural environments visible and easy to interpret.
