Figures needed to determine total building energy consumption:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Grid-purchased electricity 96,660.55 MMBtu 97,384.07 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site renewables 66.40 MMBtu 40.10 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) 74,163.59 MMBtu 75,922.46 MMBtu
Total 170,890.54 MMBtu 173,346.63 MMBtu

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or 3-year periods):
Start Date End Date
Performance Year Jan. 1, 2016 Dec. 31, 2016
Baseline Year Jan. 1, 2013 Dec. 31, 2013

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):
---

Gross floor area of building space:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Gross floor area of building space 218,652.60 Gross Square Metres 213,833.16 Gross Square Metres

Source-site ratio for grid-purchased electricity:
2.05

Total building energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Site energy 0.07 MMBtu / GSM 0.08 MMBtu / GSM
Source energy 1.25 MMBtu / GSM 0.12 MMBtu / GSM

Percentage reduction in total building energy consumption (source energy) per unit of floor area from baseline:
3.35

Degree days, performance year (base 65 °F / 18 °C):
Degree days (see help icon above)
Heating degree days 3,658.33 Degree-Days (°C)
Cooling degree days 345.56 Degree-Days (°C)

Floor area of energy intensive space, performance year:
Floor Area
Laboratory space 33,961.81 Square Metres
Healthcare space Square Metres
Other energy intensive space

EUI-adjusted floor area, performance year:
286,576.21 Gross Square Metres

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

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):

A residence energy conservation challenge is held every winter; our internal digital display boards have an ad requesting input if someone notices wastage or areas we can improve


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

There are timers for temperature control in all buildings on campus. Timers are set using a combination of both occupancy sensors and time of day scheduling. EBCx CFR Documents indicate temperature standards.


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

All new fixtures are LED. Any time a room is renovated or a new building is constructed, all fixtures are 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, e.g. combined heat and power (CHP):
---

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):

Completed EBCx in 6 buildings in 2016, B, D, H, M & Z
