​NEW ORLEANS — New buildings at community colleges provide fertile ground for campuses to not only integrate technology to save energy and money, they also provide hands-on learning experiences for students and instructors.

“Everyone is building now to LEED-standard buildings,” said Roger Ebbage, director of energy management and water conservation at Lane Community College’s (LCC) Institute for Sustainable Practices.

The Oregon college’s institute — dubbed the “building that teaches” —  provides the latest in technology, from natural ventilation to solar water heating, and it also allows for students and staff to test systems for efficiency. For example, the Institute for Sustainable Practices has multiple heating and cooling systems. Students can experiment to find the best combinations that produce the lowest carbon emissions and lowest utility costs.
