Building energy use is responsible for nearly all of the campus’ operational greenhouse gas emissions (scopes 1 and 2). Energy is used in a variety of ways on campus, including lighting buildings and exteriors, heating and cooling spaces, and powering computers, lab equipment, and plug loads.
SDSU has implemented an energy information system, allowing us to do advanced analysis of energy use, automate processes, and provide dashboards. These dashboards will display high level and detailed information on energy, water, and recycling data for anyone on campus to view to enable better analysis of energy-savings opportunities and automating invoicing. You may have seen the energy dashboards around campus that are available for the Student Union, Storm-Nasatir, and EIS.
