Because, the BCUA has utilized sustainable energy practices for economic, environmental and energy saving reasons at their faculties for over a decade the BCUA has commissioned the development of a Sustainable Energy Master Plan (SEMP) in which the mission, is to develop renewable energy sources, energy efficiency technologies, energy practices and utilize innovative strategies to achieve their energy and environmental sustainability goals. Building on these efforts, in 2007, the BCUA retained the services of PMK Group, Inc.
