Viz staff grant funds were used to develop an energy information database that compiles multiple sources of campus energy data into a single repository.  The database has both an open access public dashboard that displays and compares electricity, water and heating data between various campus buildings and also an administrative site which allows facilities personnel and interested students/faculty to log into a more detailed level of data monitoring, analysis, reporting and exports.  Energy data can be normalized per square foot or per building occupant, viewed in daily, weekly, monthly or annual intervals and displayed over any selected time period.  The dashboard is also linked to the data page of Carleton's sustainability website.
