Energy Cost and Consumption Audit Program. 1975-76 Report.
Energy Task Force, Washington, DC.
Results reported in this document were obtained from a questionnaire distributed to higher education business officers and physical plant directors requesting information on total campus and individual building energy cost and consumption for the fiscal year July 1, 1975, through June 30, 1976. Usable reports were received from 330 (22 percent) of the respondents. Comparative data to identify the impact of purchased energy are correlated with such factors as degree days, square footage, program level, and student enrollment. The questionnaire included a section requesting information on building energy consumption for nine classifications of facilities. The reported results are intended to provide institutions of higher education with a frame of reference on energy consumption that will assist in the identification of those facilities that appear to have abnormally high energy consumption and thus are in need of concentrated energy analysis and action.
