Does the institution meter all energy consumption (electricity, natural gas, purchased steam, etc.) for at least one building?:
Yes

A brief description of the metering system:

This will include metering of electricity, steam or high-temperature hot water, and chilled water. Most buildings on the east side of campus are heated in the cold months by high-temperature hot water. Most buildings on the west side of campus are heated by steam. In the summer, cooling is provided by chilled water systems. The buildings where the meters are being installed comprise 70% of the square footage of our campus buildings and approximately 80% of the energy consumption. Once all the meters are installed or updated, they will feed into a computer system that will allow our building engineers and utilities to monitor the energy consumption and detect unusual trends that could indicate problems with the systems in those buildings. As of the end of 2010, metering of those 23 buildings was near completion.
