Something Special from SEED: Energy Efficiency for Educators and Students. SEED: Schoolhouse Energy Efficiency Demonstration.
Tenneco, Inc., Houston, TX.
The goal of the Schoolhouse Energy Efficiency Demonstration (SEED) was to assist schools in reducing the impact of the rising cost of energy by defining good energy management programs and by implementing quick-fix, low-cost energy efficiency improvements. Twenty schools in 15 states participated in the demonstration program. This report covers the first year of SEED and is presented in three chapters. The first chapter presents the major findings of the SEED program and gives a profile of each of the 20 selected schools. The second chapter contains an energy audit for students and teachers that can be used in the classroom, and a survey of some successful lesson plans on energy. The last chapter is a technical manual consisting of six major parts and a glossary. The first four parts recount the important experiences from the first year of the SEED program. They are designed as background and information for those engaged in energy conservation activities in schools. The fifth part, the Schoolhouse Energy Audit Checklist, is a guide to conducting an energy audit. It is followed by energy report forms and guides to be used by the auditor in obtaining energy audit information required by the Department of Energy (DOE). (Author/MLF)
