Documentation 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:
---

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

Approximately 85% of the campus uses computerized building automation systems (BAS) to control heating and cooling systems and building lighting systems. The BAS adjusts occupied and unoccupied setpoints.


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

All major renovations and new construction require lighting systems to be LED.


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:
---

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

The University follows building codes as approved by the City of Philadelphia at the time of a renovation and/or construction. Smaller appliances (refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, etc.) are required to be Energy Star certified.
