Does the institution use a centralized energy management system that allows it to track energy consumption and performance in multiple buildings in a central location?:
Yes

A brief description of the management system:

Penn State uses ITRON Enterprise Energy Management (EEM) Suite. This system is used to track and analyze energy and water consumption in buildings as well as energy commodity purchasing. Meter data is collected manually by Utility Services and tranferred electronically into the system. Monthly invoice data from suppliers is entered into the system.

50 buildings on campus are smart metered and fed into the ITRON system through the building automation system. These buildings are the largest energy consumers on campus and this interval data allows for real-time energy management strategies to be executed.
