The innovative new Stanford Energy System Innovations (SESI) will make Stanford one of the world's most energy-efficient universities, cutting greenhouse gas emissions 68 percent and fossil fuel 65 percent. This new approach to meeting Stanford's energy needs will eliminate 150,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually, the equivalent of removing 32,000 cars from the road.
