Informed by the development of a long-term energy and sustainability master plan, Dartmouth is undergoing a multi-phase utilities infrastructure project that establishes campus-wide hot and chilled water networks, new communications pathways, and additions and safeguards to the existing electrical utility system. Major highlights include:
