Decarbonization in Progress

A major distribution piping upgrade is underway on E. Wheelock Street between College Street and Crosby Street. Pedestrians may continue to use the sidewalk on the north side of East Wheelock Street during this time.

Two-way traffic will be maintained except Monday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. During those hours, westbound traffic will be detoured down Crosby Street, turn right on Lebanon, turn right onto Main, and left back onto W. Wheelock. Eastbound traffic will not be diverted.

Dartmouth's priority is our steam to hot water transition. Steam distribution piping will be replaced with new, highly efficient hot water piping. Buildings will be updated to receive hot water distribution.

About the Program

As a climate change action leader, Dartmouth is investing $500 million to reach carbon zero operations by 2050. How will we do it? We must reshape how we heat, cool, and power our campus, including drastically reducing energy consumption, constructing highly efficient new buildings, and transitioning to low-carbon energy sources. The addition of an expanded geo-exchange system to our campus energy technology portfolio will help us meet our energy needs without generating operational carbon emissions.

Project Milestones

  • Distribution upgrades complete by 2030
  • Geo-exchange borefields to be installed by 2028
  • Geo-exchange plants expected to be operational by 2030
