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

The key to continuous improvement in energy efficiency lies in the monitoring of the building's electrical and mechanical equipment. All of this equipment is connected to a centralized management system that allows for programming and remote control (real-time measurement, instantaneous detection of failures, modification of set points, etc.). The ÉTS uses Metasys from Johnson Controls, among others.


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

Presence detectors in almost every location on campus.


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

Underneath the Phase III residence are 18 geothermal wells that reduce the total energy consumption of the Phase III and IV residences. This field of geothermal wells is part of a larger energy efficiency system for the Phase III and IV residences that also includes the recovery of heat rejected by the refrigerators of the Metro grocery store located in the Phase III residences.

Note on geothermal energy: The amount of energy from geothermal energy is estimated by comparing the energy consumption (GJ/m2) between the student residence buildings connected to the geothermal well system and the student residence buildings not connected to the geothermal well system.
