A component of the Master Utility Plan and the university’s net zero carbon goals, Ecosystem recently completed a campus-wide project that lowered the operating temperature of the central heating plant and cascading heat networks. This was achieved through steam-to-hot water conversion and installation of efficient boilers and heat exchangers. The project leveraged the university’s facility maintenance budget and utility incentives to deliver significant energy and cost savings.


Jesse graduated from Northeastern University in 2019 with a B.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering. A former member of NUSBO, Jesse had the opportunity to co-op with Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, KGS Buildings, and Advanced Microgrid Solutions. Jesse now works with Ecosystem Energy on the delivery of deep-retrofit energy efficiency projects for commercial & industrial facilities. A design-build firm, Jesse enjoys working closely with the design specialists at Ecosystem while primarily focusing on procurement and construction management. Now living in Providence, Jesse loves the proximity to Boston and mourns the loss of Conor Larkin’s Grill & Tap.
