DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/83c72b/college_electricit) has announced the addition of the "College Electricity Consumption Benchmarks" report to their offering.
College Electricity Consumption Benchmarks looks closely at the electricity consumption tendencies of a wide range of colleges, presenting over 75 pages of data on spending habits, annual expenditures, electricity conservation efforts, the usages of various forms of energy, and much more. Data is broken out by institution size and type of college, and statistics are given per full-time enrolled student. This report helps end users identify the trends in electricity use of the 17 colleges surveyed and what steps these colleges have taken to increase energy efficiency and reduce consumption.
This study examines the energy consumption habits of over 15 colleges in the United States and Canada, focusing on electricity spending and usage. The report also covers the efforts of these colleges to increase energy efficiency and reduce consumption, providing hard data on what measures have been taken as well as open-ended written responses. Data is broken out by institution size and type of college, and statistics are given per full-time enrolled student.
Just a few of the many findings from this 78-page report are:
- In the past year, the colleges in the sample spent an average of $745 per full-time enrolled student on electricity.
- 18.75% of participants used solar energy generated by their institutions for purposes of heating and/or electricity.
- Colleges with less than 2,500 students saw an average 15% decrease in electricity use on campus during spring break.
- For the 2010-11 academic year, 4-year colleges had a mean of 9,776.85 total kilowatt hours of consumption per full-time enrolled student, well above the entire sample mean of 6,481.52.
- 87.50% of the colleges have made an effort to replace lighting with higher efficiency bulbs that consume less electricity.
