State University of New York at Brockport
OP-5: Building Energy Consumption

Status Score Responsible Party
Complete 3.15 / 6.00
"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Figures needed to determine total building energy consumption:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Grid-purchased electricity 106,017 MMBtu 103,350 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site renewables 476 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
District steam/hot water (sourced from offsite) 0 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
Energy from all other sources (e.g., natural gas, fuel oil, propane/LPG, district chilled water, coal/coke, biomass) 169,117 MMBtu 161,651 MMBtu
Total 275,610 MMBtu 265,001 MMBtu

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or 3-year periods):
Start Date End Date
Performance Year July 1, 2016 June 30, 2017
Baseline Year July 1, 2004 June 30, 2005

A brief description of when and why the building energy consumption baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

The energy baseline corresponds to the baseline year from the original STARS submission.

Gross floor area of building space:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Gross floor area of building space 2,919,577 Gross Square Feet 2,624,541 Gross Square Feet

Source-site ratio for grid-purchased electricity:

Total building energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Site energy 0.09 MMBtu / GSF 0.10 MMBtu / GSF
Source energy 0.17 MMBtu / GSF 0.19 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total building energy consumption (source energy) per unit of floor area from baseline:

Degree days, performance year (base 65 °F / 18 °C):
Degree days (see help icon above)
Heating degree days 5,626 Degree-Days (°F)
Cooling degree days 922 Degree-Days (°F)

Floor area of energy intensive space, performance year:
Floor Area
Laboratory space 152,876 Square Feet
Healthcare space 2,876 Square Feet
Other energy intensive space

EUI-adjusted floor area, performance year:
3,521,192 Gross Square Feet

Building energy consumption (site energy) per unit of EUI-adjusted floor area per degree day, performance year:
11.95 Btu / GSF / Degree-Day (°F)

Documentation (e.g. spreadsheet or utility records) to support the performance year energy consumption figures reported above:

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency (e.g. outreach and education efforts):

A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution (e.g. building temperature standards, occupancy and vacancy sensors):

The campus has implemented a space temperature control policy to maintain heating setpoints at 70°F occupied/60°F unoccupied and cooling setpoints at 75°F occupied/80°F unoccupied. The campus has also initiated a policy that restricts space heaters unless medically necessary (need note from doctor).Occupancy sensors seem to be limited to newer buildings and renovations where required by code and intermittent elsewhere. A campus wide building automation system (BAS) exists.

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

Brockport estimates 10-20% LED penetration across campus for interior lighting. Continuing to upgrade lighting to LED as budget permits. New project is currently in design phase to replace fixtures in priority buildings identified by Brockport. Brockport estimates 50-60% LED penetration across campus for exterior lighting. Brockport is using National Grid incentives to replace about 40 fixtures with LEDs. Daylighting exists in Edwards Hall.

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

Brockport Townhome Residential Living Complex employs geothermal heat pumps for heating and cooling.

A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution, e.g. combined heat and power (CHP):

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment and systems with high efficiency alternatives (e.g. building re-commissioning or retrofit programs):

Campus vending machines are equipped with these sensors. After an area is vacant for some time, power is automatically shutdown until the sensors detect motion.
