A brief description of when and why the energy consumption baseline was adopted:

2013 was established as the energy consumption baseline because this the most recent year that we have all of the correct data to draw upon.


Source-site ratio for imported electricity:
3

Total energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Site energy Source energy
Performance year 0.08 MMBtu / GSF 0.16 MMBtu / GSF
Baseline year 0.10 MMBtu / GSF 0.18 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total source energy consumption per unit of floor area from baseline:
13.73

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency:

Emails to the campus community during winter break to shut off lights, turn down thermostats.
Facilities staff meets with Residence Life staff and resident assistants to educate students about energy conservation (i.e. shut off lights, turn down thermostats).


A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution:

90% of production is by means of condensing boilers, under the control of the campus BAS. The campus BAS allows for complex clock routines and changes in schedule to accommodate the academic calendar. The system has approximately 8,500 control points. Among other functions, it is programmed to automatically reset temperature to save energy during night setbacks and unoccupied periods.When possible the system will shut down energy consuming equipment entirely when buildings are unoccupied.


A brief description of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and other energy-efficient lighting strategies employed by the institution:

85% of all lighting on campus has been changed to LED or energy-efficient lighting. Two of the campuses largest buildings have been changed to all LED lighting, Bello library and the Unistructure. LED lighting is being used extensively in exit signs throughout campus, and all parking lot lighting is LED. We are currently in a program of replacing halogen PAR lamps used in recessed fixtures with new LED lamps throughout campus in dining facilities, elevators, and other public spaces. Any new additions or renovated spaces utilize all new LED fixtures with occupancy sensors. Ongoing operations project of replacing exterior metal halide floodlights with LED type.


A brief description of passive solar heating, geothermal systems, and related strategies employed by the institution:

Geothermal systems exist in two dormitories and in the Callahan House Presidential Residence.


A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution:

None


A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment, and systems with high efficiency alternatives:

Project in development to replace townhouses C-G from electric to natural gas. Any new appliances must be Energy Star certified. Any new/replacement condensing equipment has a higher SEER rating.
