Does the institution meter all energy consumption (electricity, natural gas, purchased steam, etc.) for at least one building?:

A brief description of the metering system:

Energy is monitored very closely at Penn State. For the majority of buildings on campus, all energy commodities including electricity, natural gas, steam and chiller water are metered at the building level. Some groups of buildings (ex: Farm Operations) may be metered together. A mix of meter types are used. Meters are manually read monthly and data is transfered electronically to the ITRON Enterprise Energy Management (EEM) Suite.

50 buildings on campus are smart metered and feed 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 management strategies to be executed.
