A brief description of when and why the building energy consumption baseline was adopted:

UWinnipeg began a major energy retrofit process in 2009. Key initiatives include a series of building controls retrofits, a major ventilation retrofit (ongoing), a series of boiler replacements for buildings that are not connected to the University’s main heating system, and the installation of a hybrid heating system that uses lower-emitting electricity for heating at off-peak times. A single year was chosen instead of a three-year span b/c during this time, the physical footprint of the campus has grown year over year.
