Description

This project is dedicated to updating the collection methods and processing of utility information for all building Susquehanna University owns by use of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified webtools. Utilities tracked for this project include Electricity, Natural Gas, Fuel Oil, Water, Coal, and more tracked all the way back to 2013 by using the platform called Portfolio Manager. The total greenhouse gas emissions from the university was also determined for the 2016 year, categorized by three different scopes. Buildings needing large improvements to infrastructure and energy use were highlighted by project and given suggestions for improvement. All data was collected by records kept by Facilities Management. Preliminary results for project have shown a total CO2 emissions of all scopes is over 10,000 Metric tons per year from the university. Also depicted by the utility information is the massive drop in energy use from Susquehanna switching from coal burning to natural gas.
