Figures needed to determine total building energy consumption:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Grid-purchased electricity 37,383 MMBtu 34,076 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site renewables 3,913 MMBtu 3,524 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) 45,661 MMBtu 37,202 MMBtu
Total 86,957 MMBtu 74,802 MMBtu

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or 3-year periods):
Start Date End Date
Performance Year March 1, 2018 Feb. 28, 2019
Baseline Year March 1, 2017 Feb. 28, 2018

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):

These time periods most accurately depict the current status of our campus from a building standpoint and include the most reliable energy data.

Gross floor area of building space:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Gross floor area of building space 1,485,120 Gross Square Feet 1,196,426 Gross Square Feet

Source-site ratio for grid-purchased electricity:

Total building energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Site energy 0.06 MMBtu / GSF 0.06 MMBtu / GSF
Source energy 0.11 MMBtu / GSF 0.12 MMBtu / GSF

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

Degree days, performance year (base 65 °F / 18 °C):
Degree days (see help icon above)
Heating degree days 5,538 Degree-Days (°F)
Cooling degree days 1,036 Degree-Days (°F)

Floor area of energy intensive space, performance year:
Floor Area
Laboratory space 20,000 Square Feet
Healthcare space 0 Square Feet
Other energy intensive space

EUI-adjusted floor area, performance year:
1,525,120 Gross Square Feet

Building energy consumption (site energy) per unit of EUI-adjusted floor area per degree day, performance year:
8.67 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):

Office of Sustainability runs several occupant engagement and behavior change campaigns focused on building energy use. Outreach and education through newsletter and targeted campus outreach with energy saving tips for academic breaks and seasonal shifts.

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

BMS through Johnson Controls with setpoints, setbacks and occupancy/vacancy utilized;
Energy Manager through SchoolDude for tracking and reporting;
Piloting CopperTree Building Analytics for preventative maintenance and diagnostics;
Temperature Policy and Green Building Standards.

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

Entire campus (buildings and exterior) is almost completely retrofitted with LED lighting and controls as well as occupancy and vacancy sensors.

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):

Exploring onsite CHP opportunity.

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):

Pursing energy conservation measures and retro-commissioning across campus building portfolio on a continuous basis.
