Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

Through the campus energy management system, occupancy schedules are established for various facilities based on the function of the space (i.e. classroom, office, lab…) and the heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) systems serving those spaces are programmed to operate only during occupied periods. Additionally, the spaces are monitored during unoccupied periods to activate the HVAC systems if the space temperatures exceed acceptable conditions (i.e. space temperature rises above 85°F or drops below 60°F).

The percentage of building space (square footage) with timers for temperature control:
