MARVIN T. HOWELL is a former senior energy and solar consultant with SkyPower Energy Corporation in Arlington, Texas. As a contracted senior environmental associate with Analytical Services Inc. for eight years, Mr. Howell implemented environmental management systems at eight U.S. DEA facilities, including labs, division offices, an intelligence center and an air operations center. In this capacity, he was instrumental in planning and designing several energy management initiatives that resulted in significant energy cost saving improvements throughout the DEA facilities. Previously Mr. Howell was manager of distribution planning and reliability for Florida Power and Light, and also served as a Lt. Colonel in Air Force civil engineering, where he was involved in energy reduction efforts, reliability centered maintenance, project management, construction and maintenance management, efficiency and productivity improvements. He holds a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Mississippi State University and a masters in industrial engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. In 2014 he authored the book, Effective Implementation of ISO 50001 Energy Management System, published by ASQ Quality Press.
Presented online in a series of two live 2 hour time modules, this seminar is designed to serve as a guide for those who are tasked with identifying and putting in place strategies which will enable the efficient development and implementation of sustainable energy and environmental practices in campus settings.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.


This course presents an orderly and organized approach to successfully implementing sustainable energy and environmental practices in college, university and other campus settings. Proven plans for reducing green house gas emissions, increasing renewable energy, and reducing water consumption will be examined and illustrated. Approaches to get the most from a recycling and reuse program will also be explored.

Sustainability requires everyone's participation to truly become a reality. Actions that both individuals and departments can accomplish everyday to help the campus reach a sustainable level are explained and outlined. The need for top management's leadership and "ownership" of strategic sustainability management and the process to follow will also be emphasized, taking into account both the economic and other campus-specific factors which must be considered to effectively achieve the targeted goals.

As an effective approach to identify and realize improvement opportunities, a sustainability plan of action known as "PARTS" will be presented, explained and demonstrated. The PARTS plan clearly categorizes and illustrates each specific element of the organizational structure required to achieve productive sustainable practices on campus.

Course participants will also learn the best strategies to "institutionalize" the desired individual sustainability-supporting behaviors on campus, as well as how to mitigate potential threats to the success of the campus sustainability program should they materialize.
