Electricity from on-site renewables 6200 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
District steam/hot water (sourced from offsite) 0 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
Energy from all other sources (e.g., natural gas, fuel oil, propane/LPG, district chilled water, coal/coke, biomass) 103462 MMBtu 112054 MMBtu
Total 253357 MMBtu 262338 MMBtu

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or 3-year periods):
Start Date End Date
Performance Year July 1, 2015 June 30, 2016
Baseline Year July 1, 2005 June 30, 2006

A brief description of when and why the building energy consumption baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):
---

Gross floor area of building space:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Gross floor area of building space 1415229 Gross Square Feet 2886367 Gross Square Feet

Source-site ratio for grid-purchased electricity:
3.14

Total building energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Site energy 0.18 MMBtu / GSF 0.09 MMBtu / GSF
Source energy 0.40 MMBtu / GSF 0.20 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total building energy consumption (source energy) per unit of floor area from baseline:
0

Degree days, performance year (base 65 °F / 18 °C):
Degree days (see help icon above)
Heating degree days 1188 Degree-Days (°F)
Cooling degree days 2271 Degree-Days (°F)

Floor area of energy intensive space, performance year:
Floor Area
Laboratory space 272164 Square Feet
Healthcare space 12026 Square Feet
Other energy intensive space

EUI-adjusted floor area, performance year:
2028174 Gross Square Feet

Building energy consumption (site energy) per unit of EUI-adjusted floor area per degree day, performance year:
36.11 Btu / GSF / Degree-Day (°F)

Documentation (e.g. spreadsheet or utility records) to support the performance year energy consumption figures reported above:
---

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency (e.g. outreach and education efforts):
---

A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution (e.g. building temperature standards, occupancy and vacancy sensors):

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.


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

The campus is currently working with different types of lighting technology to determine which will be the best for the campus at large. LED is one of the technologies we are using in this evaluation.


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

A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution, e.g. combined heat and power (CHP):
---

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment and systems with high efficiency alternatives (e.g. building re-commissioning or retrofit programs):
---
