Of the institution's uncertified building space, what percentage of floor area is maintained in accordance with an energy management or benchmarking program? (0-100):
100

A brief description of the energy management or benchmarking program:

All main campus buildings and buildings connected to the campus central plant are managed by Facilities Services through an electronic system, Obvious. The system helps UC Berkeley facilities operators monitor energy use in each building and quickly identify anomalies and malfunctions that can be corrected to conserve energy. The campus has set itself a goal of reducing energy use intensity by 2 percent annually, and it uses Obvious to manage day-to-day progress toward that goal.

Additionally, more than 100 campus buildings are connected to public facing dashboards: https://sustainability.berkeley.edu/energy-dashboards


Of the institution's uncertified building space, what percentage of floor area is maintained in accordance with a water management or benchmarking program? (0-100):
100

A brief description of the water management or benchmarking program:

The campus maintains over 180 water accounts and meters with the local water utility East Bay Municipal Utility District. Water data is collected annually and reported, and issues are researched as needed. These digital meters allow Facilities Services to monitor usage online and respond to leaks more quickly. The campus has set itself a goal of reducing potable water use to 10% below 2008 levels by 2020, which the water metering system helps the campus monitor progress toward.

The campus also has an extensive drought management program ongoing: https://facilities.berkeley.edu/drought-response
