A brief description of other sources of building heating not specified above:

To achieve the energy used for heating buildings, UNO used the best possible data granularity and calculated it in this way. Mammel Hall is the only building with electric heat. UNO used total MMBtu of natural gas and fuel oil for the campus and added the MMBtu of electricity used at Mammel Hall as the best representation of energy for heating. Percentages of that total were then derived for natural gas, fuel oil, and Mammel Hall electricity.

Campus size was calculated using the Dodge and Pacific Campuses and the Glacier Creek Prairie Preserve. Residence Halls were not included in this figure, as utility data was not easily auditable as of this submission. Subsequent submissions will include the 443,463 gsf of residential space. Other university property was not included for this submission.

Energy Intensive space includes that designated as laboratories, broadcasting, food service, and science space, using Marshall and Swift categories.
