Leading by Example Progress: Energy Use

Leading by Example progress to reduce energy use and building fuel oil consumption at Massachusetts state facilities.

Annual Energy Use Intensity

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

Number of Agencies/Campuses by Energy Use Intensity % Change from Baseline

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

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.)
