About the Project

Dartmouth must update the campus infrastructure to move hot water instead of steam to use new decarbonization technologies. The first phase of upgrades will occur between summer 2024 and winter 2025. These upgrades are strategic and necessary to enable a new energy facility that will be located in the southeast portion of campus.
