104) How much energy did campus buildings and grounds consume in the last academic year, and what were the costs associated with each type of fuel?
105) Natural Gas:
106) Fuel Oil:
107) How has campus energy use changed over the past five years?
108) Does your campus have an energy efficiency program?
Which of the following programs does it include?
-Replacement of incandescent lighting with more efficient lighting systems: The University has funded this type of activity in the late 1980ís through the use of energy bonds.
-Computerized energy management systems: The University implemented this program in 1990. The system manages the heating and cooling systems for most of the university buildings.
-Energy conservation awareness program for staff and/or on campus residents: The University has periodically sent out notices to the staff and faculty regarding conserving energy, but a more formal program is in need of development.
-Solar water heating: The University has conducted an analysis of implementing solar water heating and has not found it to provide sufficient life cycle cost savings to merit implementation.
-Passive solar building design: The University has asked its architects to include such features in the design of new buildings on campus.
-On campus cogeneration: The University has conducted an analysis of this program and has not found it to provide sufficient life cycle cost savings to merit implementation.
-Energy efficient windows: The University has implemented a program to replace windows in most of the older buildings with new energy efficient windows. Additional buildings will be included in this program as funding permits.
-Energy efficient appliances: The University has included an analysis of energy efficiency in its procurement decisions.
-Other: The University has constructed a Thermal Energy
Storage System to generate chilled water in the evenings and use it during
the warm days thus avoiding the use of electricity during the highest peak
use times of the day. The university has also adopted the use of
a cover over the swimming pools in order to reduce heat loss during the
non-use time and thus saves energy by not having to reheat the pools.
