Congratulations to the 2021 winners of the Freezer Challenge, the Basta Lab!
From February to May 1st, 2021, we challenged UNC graduate students, post-docs, lab managers, and P.I.s to reduce energy use in lab freezers.
In 2019, by adopting efficient, effective sample storage practices in laboratories across campus, we saved 1,416,492 kWh of electricity!
In 2021, the Basta lab earned $5,000 towards an energy-efficient freezer!
In 2019, the Knowles Lab, the winning UNC lab, took home the UNC Freezer Challenge trophy!
