Stanford Energy System Innovations (SESI) will be among the most energy-efficient systems of any major research university in the world. The project involves a new replacement central energy facility, a new electrical substation, and a steam to hot water conversion process for underground piping.

  • The implementation of SESI will require significant work throughout the campus between 2012 and 2015, including the installation of more than 20 miles of hot water pipe and changes to mechanical rooms of 155 buildings.
  • As the work is completed in phases, SESI construction will impact parking and will affect vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle access throughout campus.
  • Please observe all posted signs and share the road.

  • Campus Drive West has changed from two lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction between Roth Way and Palm Drive. This change is in effect through December 2014.
  • While vehicle access to all streets, buildings and parking structures along Campus Drive will not change, commuters and visitors may want to plan for alternate routes or additional time during the peak commute hours from 7 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Bicyclists and pedestrians should use Palm Drive and Roth Way as alternative routes.
  • This change is necessary to accommodate work being done as part of the construction of the Anderson Gallery and of the new energy facility on the Stanford University campus.
