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:

Heating, cooling, ventilation, and lighting (indoor and outdoor) on campus is controlled by a system provided by KMC Controls. The building and facilities manager and maintenance staff have access to this system to diagnose and solve problems with campus mechanical and lighting systems and to make their operation as efficient as possible. On-campus electrical use and generation, steam and chilled water production, and domestic water use is metered with the ION+ metering system from Schneider Electric. Electricity use is metered for each building, and steam and chilled water production is metered for each boiler and chiller. Additionally, the natural gas consumption of the boilers is metered through the same system. The real-time and historical ION+ metering data is available through a web browser to anyone on campus.
