Total 95,580 MMBtu 85,523 MMBtu

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or 3-year periods):
Start Date End Date
Performance Year Jan. 1, 2016 Dec. 31, 2016
Baseline Year Jan. 1, 2014 Dec. 31, 2014

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):
Registration of this information started with the introduccion of the Sustainability Program at the University with the new administration.

Gross floor area of building space:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Gross floor area of building space 2,651,075 Gross square meters 2,651,075 Gross square meters

Source-site ratio for grid-purchased electricity:

Total building energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Site energy 0.00 MMBtu per square meter 0.00 MMBtu per square meter
Source energy 0.01 MMBtu per square meter 0.01 MMBtu per square meter

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

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):
Sustainability office has a project called UAT Sustentable which aim is to rise awarenes of environmental issues, energy efficiency, sustainable practices through conferences, workshops and campaigns. It also has two manuals: sustainable events and green offices.

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

A brief description of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and other energy-efficient lighting strategies employed by the institution:
According to the strategic plan of the Administration Secretariat, the Maintenance Department of the University has started a program which aim is to change the luminaries in the main existing buildings. LEDs luminaries has been installed in the Management Building, "Gestion del Conocimiento"

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

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):
