Does the institution use a centralized energy management system that allows it to track energy consumption and performance in multiple buildings in a central location?:

A brief description of the management system:

Drew initiated an Energy Support Program in January 2010. During the first six months of the Energy Support Program, Drew achieved a 9 percent reduction in overall energy consumption while saving $65,848 and reducing carbon emissions by 250 metric tons of eCO2. This is equivalent to permanently removing 49 passenger vehicles from New Jersey roadways.

Actions taken to reduce energy consumption include more efficient building scheduling, reduced steam pressure at the central heating plant, and replacing older window air-conditioning units in Tilghman House with new units.
