The goal of the Vice Chancellor Real Estate (VCRE) office is to create an integrated real estate management and operating company. To this end, we are transforming the way we approach the development and management of Berkeley’s on-campus and off-campus facilities, working to become a highly dynamic planning, management, development and construction organization focused on customer service, operating efficiencies, and new revenue generation. Our goal is to create a new structure that positions Berkeley to better respond to the rapidly changing challenges and opportunities that we confront.

Holiday Energy Curtailment

Heating and ventilation will again be curtailed on the Berkeley campus from end of day December 23, 2015 through Sunday, January 3, 2016.  Only heat and ventilation will be curtailed; normal electric service will be maintained at all times.   Reducing energy use during the winter break last year saved 1.48 million kWh of electricity and 37 thousand therms of steam, for cost savings to the campus of approximately $187,000. This is enough to power 980 and heat 1,500 homes for a whole month!
For more detail about Curtailment, including a list of buildings scheduled for energy curtailment and a request for exemption, please click here.
