An Analysis of Energy Use on Community College Campuses.
York, Carl M.
Based upon an engineering and statistical analysis of energy use on community and two-year college campuses, a simple model for describing energy use is introduced and applied to data from 80 campuses to determine average values for the parameters of the model. These values indicate that the use of energy does not depend on the type of heating fuel or combination of fuels used, but rather on the physical construction of the campus buildings and the way they are utilized. Since the model automatically separates out differences in size and climate between campuses, it provides an individual campus with an objective means of comparing its energy use with that of its peers.
