Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

Building 66: We use a time clock for AC1, AC2 and the boiler.
Building 97: 3 AHUs are controlled by time clocks.
Building 55: All 9 AC units are controlled by time clocks - we set back thermostats.

In addition we utilize summer 4/10 schedule.This summer work schedule change is observed in order to reduce energy costs and the university’s carbon footprint.
The 4/10 summer schedule was implemented in 2008. The goal then and every summer since implementation, has been to promote energy, utility, and environmental savings which is consistent with our environmental and renewable energy commitment and the efficient delivery of summer operations.

The percentage of building space (square footage) with timers for temperature control:
