In June, The University of Texas at Austin brought home 2018 System of the Year honors from the International District Energy Association (IDEA) 109th Annual Conference and Trade Show in Vancouver, British Columbia. Announcing the award, IDEA stated that, “The University of Texas at Austin has earned the distinction among its peers as the most efficient university utility in the U.S.”
