Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

The Energy Management Office maintains a setback schedule for many buildings, except for laboratories. Air Handler Units (AHUs), Exhaust Fans (Efs) and associated zones (room temperature controls) are setback during low-occupancy periods to save energy. This means that Monday-Friday the normal settings are in effect by about 5 a.m. and setback at 6 p.m., or earlier, to account for typical building occupancy schedules. There are additional setback guidelines for weekends, the day before a holiday, holidays, and the first business day after a holiday.
