The University of Massachusetts Boston recently developed a 25-year plan to make the campus more sustainable. As a major step in that plan, UMass partnered with Enel X to add solar, storage, and EV charging to their Boston campus. Their efforts recently led to a Project of the Year award from Environment + Energy Leader.
