A brief description of when and why the energy consumption baseline was adopted:

While working with the New York City's Office of Sustainability we developed a baseline of 2016.


Source-site ratio for imported electricity:
3

Total energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Site energy Source energy
Performance year 0.10 MMBtu / GSF 0.17 MMBtu / GSF
Baseline year 0.13 MMBtu / GSF 0.23 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total source energy consumption per unit of floor area from baseline:
24.00

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:

We have a building control system in most of our buildings. This system has programmable settings for the occupancy and the time of day. We remotely access the BMS control energy use on weekends, holidays and semester breaks where the university may be closed and have seen significant energy savings.


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

In many areas we have already upgraded to LED Lighting, however it looks like we will upgrade the majority of what has not been upgraded during 2020.


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

We have a geothermal system in our environmental classroom building which is on display for students to learn about the technology.


A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution:

None


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

We are replacing and upgrading our boilers on the Pleasantville and White Plains campuses as part of our deferred maintenance program. The old boiler is replaced with a modular , high efficient system. We upgrade the building controls for the boiler as well. At the White Plains campus, we replaced the oil fired boiler in our Environmental House with a natural gas modular one and also added heat pumps which provide heating and cooling.
