Lou Tiseo, ITS Director of Infrastructure Engineering, has been honored by the Office of Sustainability for the work he and his team have invested in to make Yale Information Technology Services a much more sustainable organization.
Lou and his team have consolidated data centers, configured equipment to dramatically reduce energy utilization and increase efficiency, and significantly reduced cooling requirements, resulting in large overall energy savings. They also have worked across ITS to relocate many applications and much storage to offsite locations with cloud-based service providers with even more effective sustainability plans.
Lou received his 2017 State of Sustainability award at the annual awards breakfast held in the Presidents Room at Woolsey Hall on April 21. The event was attended by contributors to Yale's sustainability efforts from all areas of the University. The keynote speech was given by Ann Kurth, Dean and Linda Koch Lorimer Professor at the Yale University School of Nursing. Dean Kurth spoke on the important relationship between health and the environment.
Congratulations to Lou on receipt of this award and thanks to Lou and his entire team for their good work.
