Does the institution use motion, infrared, and/or light sensors to reduce energy use for lighting in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

In renovations of existing buildings, and in construction of new buildings, motion, infrared and light sensors are being used. This technology was used in our new Integrated Science Building as described on our website:
The south-facing windows of the large atrium draw sunlight from the low solar angle of the sun in the winter to enhance lighting and reduce heating loads. Mechanical lighting is zoned with automatic control devices such as photocell sensors and occupancy sensors.

This technology was also used in renovations for the English Department in our Administrative Service building, in the Diplomacy building renovations, the Science building and in other locations.
