Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), located on Long Island, New York, USA, has maintained robust energy management and sustainability programs since the first energy crisis in the early 1970’s. Our presentation will overview BNL’s science mission; physical plant infrastructure; energy and carbon footprints; and past energy and sustainability accomplishments. We will also highlight some notable features of BNL’s sustainability program including the 32MW Long Island Solar Farm at BNL; use of renewable hydroelectric power; chilled water thermal storage; LEED-certified research facilities and investment strategies. Finally, we will touch on BNL’s Site Sustainability Plan, including our goals and future vision.
