Heating and cooling the buildings on a campus as large as U of T Mississauga is no small feat, and the energy required is significant. But through new conservation efforts in partnership with Enersource, UTM has reduced its usage by 534,804 kilowatts, which translates to roughly $173,000 in savings.
Retreating sea ice in the Iceland and Greenland Seas may be changing the circulation of warm and cold water in the Atlantic Ocean, and could ultimately impact the climate in Europe, says a new study by an atmospheric physicist from the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) and his colleagues in Great Britain, Norway and the United States.
Students will find it easier to transition into academic life thanks to a one-of-a-kind program launching at U of T Mississauga in fall 2015.
