The Energy Systems and Controls (ESC) division is responsible for operation and maintenance of all primary mechanical, electrical, HVAC and building control systems for campus. ESC is mandated to control utility costs while maintaining a quality learning and working environment. Through maintenance and upgrade of equipment as well as monitoring, analysis and scheduling of building systems, ESC controls costs, protects the University's investment in equipment, and collects data useful in the development of energy management and building system maintenance strategies.
ESC also recovers energy cost from various groups on campus. The policy on recovery of energy cost is that: "Where groups use university facilities for the providing of contracted revenue-generating activities, the revenues realized from those activities shall fund incremental facility and energy costs." Costs are also recovered from federal and provincial agencies who receive energy from the university.
