 About the tour:

We are pleased to offer a tour of Stanford University’s new Central Energy Facility sponsored by the Santa Clara Valley PES/IAS Chapters and Stanford University Lands, Building and Real Estate, Sustainability and Energy Management.  Spaces are limited and will be filled quickly.  Pre-registration and safety attire will be required.

The new Central Energy Facility replaces the Cardinal Co-gen Plant on Stanford University campus.  This facility includes a high voltage substation, heating, cooling and waste heat recovery systems.  It is designed to significantly reduce Stanford University’s natural gas usage while electrifying the campus heating and cooling systems.

Appropriate PPE and clothing including hard hats, long pants and hard shoes with flat heels are required.  Short sleeve shirts are fine.  There are limited hard hats available on site if needed.  Tour will start at the main entrance which is located on Fremont Road.  There is a visitor pay parking lot on Oak Road with meters enforced from 8 am to 4 pm.  No food or drink will be allowed during the tour.  You may want to grab lunch before the tour from a wide variety of dining destinations on campus.
