Florida Energy Management Handbook for School Administrators.
Florida Governor's Office of Energy, Tallahassee.; Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
To assist Florida school administrators in establishing comprehensive energy management programs in their school districts, this handbook presents a systematic, integrated approach. The first chapter outlines the steps that school districts must take to initiate an energy management program, including establishing a committee and a coordinator for the district. Chapter 2 identifies procedures for collecting energy-use data at each school. Chapter 3 shows how the characteristics of the major energy-using systems and of operations practices affect energy consumption. Chapter 4 discusses the manpower and financial resources available to schools and shows how a plan can be formulated to use these resources effectively to identify and implement the best measures. Chapter 5 identifies strategies for the integration of energy issues into the existing curriculum. Chapter 6 addresses energy emergency contingency planning by providing guidelines for designing plans to deal with possible moderate and serious energy emergencies. Eight appendices contain checklists, forms, references, an index, a list of energy contact-persons in Florida, and a glossary. (Author/MLF)
