Of the institution's uncertified building space, what percentage of floor area is maintained in accordance with an energy management or benchmarking program? (0-100):
100

A brief description of the energy management or benchmarking program:

At the Central Plant, an Allen Bradley Balance of Plant (BOP) energy management system monitors and controls the production side of the operation. Plant operators reference an energy dashboard to monitor the output of PV, tri-generation, and So Cal Edison electricity resources to ensure the program is maximizing the lower cost PV and tri-gen components while maintaining a small (200kW) Edison import to obtain the best value for the university. Hot and chilled thermal energy storage tanks are charged via absorption chillers (which operate off the tri-gen waste heat) or a variable speed electric chiller which is operated when we have excess PV energy or during overnight hours when Edison electric rates are at their lowest.

Campus HVAC and lighting is controlled via an Andover BMS program. HVAC equipment and lighting is scheduled on/off. Office and classroom HVAC is controlled between 68F (heating set point) and 76F (cooling set point). Economizer controls are incorporated where applicable (office and non-laboratory class rooms). In 2017, the library HVAC system was upgraded and now uses a trim and respond control sequence to maximize HVAC energy efficiency.
