Critical Facilities: Greener Facilities

Description:
The greener facility course highlights the many ways that an operator can run a greener facility. Where the facility is placed inside the network has a big impact on its carbon footprints. The materials used to construct the facility also play a role on carbon dioxide production. The biggest improvement in carbon footprint an operator can do for the facility is make the power consumption more efficient. The use of renewable energy sources and more efficient HVAC systems are ways an operator can take to achieve the goal of a greener facility.
