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

This was the performance year from our last STARS (2016-2017) and thereby allows us to compare progress since that last assessment. For ACUPCC reporting, 2008 is used as a baseline for all years.


Source-site ratio for imported electricity:
3

Total energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Site energy Source energy
Performance year 0.08 MMBtu / GSF 0.14 MMBtu / GSF
Baseline year 0.09 MMBtu / GSF 0.16 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total source energy consumption per unit of floor area from baseline:
17.34

Documentation to support the performance year energy consumption figures reported above:

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency:
---

A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution:

Buildings are maintained between 68-72 degrees during occupied hours. Recently, the institution began reducing/increasing temperatures to save energy during unoccupied hours.


A brief description of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and other energy-efficient lighting strategies employed by the institution:

Westminster has recently completed a major lighting retrofit of two parking structures and the gym's field house to LED lighting. Additional LED conversion has also been happening on an ad hoc basis.


A brief description of passive solar heating, geothermal systems, and related strategies employed by the institution:

None


A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution:

None


A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment, and systems with high efficiency alternatives:

None
