Philadelphia Zoo- Utility Consumption Report

The Center for Building Performance and Diagnostics team worked with the Philadelphia Zoo and Consortium for Building Energy Innovation to conduct an analysis of the zoo’s current sub-metering condition and its energy consumption.

The report includes different types of benchmarking, historical energy consumption data analysis, and suggestions for sub-metering with the buildings ranked by potential for savings as a guide for action. This report is not only intended to act as the first step to facilitate the Philadelphia Zoo’s future sustainability plan but also to develop a standard utility analysis guideline for other existing zoos and aquariums.
