Annual Energy Use Intensity
Overall energy use intensity (kBtu/per square foot) decreased 15% from the Leading by Example baseline (Fiscal Year 2004) through Fiscal Year 2017 for the 44 Leading by Example partners whose energy use is tracked using this metric.
*LBE does not track square footage or energy use intensity for 5 of the 49 state partners, due to the nature of energy and facility use at these sites.
Number of Agencies/Campuses by Energy Use Intensity % Change
From the LBE baseline year (Fiscal Year 2004) through Fiscal Year 2017, overall energy use intensity (kBtu/per square foot) decreased more than 25% for 12 Leading by Example partners (agencies/campuses), 10-25% for 16 partners, and 0-10% for 7 partners. Conversely, overall energy use intensity increased by 0-10% for 5 partners, 10-25% for 1 partner, and more than 25% for 3 partners.
Annual Building Fuel Oil Consumption
Overall fuel oil consumption used in buildings has decreased 84% from FY06 through FY17, a reduction of more than 19 million gallons.
*Oil consumption for non-building use not included (e.g. vehicles, maritime vessels, flood control, etc.)
