Education

Energy conservation has a direct impact on a college campus or school district's financial bottom line, reduced consumption equals reduced spending. The result is an efficient campus that becomes an optimal learning environment, saves money, and protects people and property.

Features:

  • Complly with government energy benchmarking ,energy efficiency, and energy disclosure laws.
  • Simple, easy-to-interpret daily scorecards to teach building energy use, cost savings, load profiles and peak demand days.
  • Track energy savings performance and detect usage anomalies or areas for operational improvements.
  • Simple-to-use web-based application that learns energy use patterns and consumption in buildings.
  • Award winning Energy Expert software.
  • Automated upload of required data in the Energy Star Portfolio Manager.

Benefits

  • Reduce energy waste and costs.
  • Professionally created report with a summary of energy saving opportunities provides measurable demonstration of a school's committment to sustainability.
  • Research has shown that students performance increased by an average of 15% and up to 30% with improved building indoor climate conditions.
  • Continually compare actual performance to energy benchmarks.
  • Energy dashboard and kiosks showcase energy data, such as consumption used in a specific dormitory or academic building.

Case Studies

K-12 Energy Efficiency Project

Energy audits and tune-ups were performed in over 894 K-12 classroom buildings. Energy ExpertTM, an advanced Energy Information System (EIS), began tracking energy use providing critical feedback to building operators to verify savings and ensure they persist over time.

Idaho Case Study

The Office of Energy Resource’s (OER) K-12 Energy Efficiency Project is funded by the United States Department of Energy through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This project is increasing energy efficiency in Idaho schools and securing statewide energy savings.
