Total Energy Management for Minnesota Schools.
Minnesota State Dept. of Energy, Planning and Development, St. Paul.
Total Energy Management (TEM) is a unified, planned approach to reducing the energy use and costs of an individual school or school district. The program increases energy awareness and improves school energy efficiency through: (1) careful energy accounting; (2) changes in operations and maintenance procedures; (3) modifications in the building envelope and its energy using systems; (4) energy management; and (5) curricula with an energy focus. Examples of how each of these TEM components have been implemented in Minnesota are provided. Steps that other schools or school districts can follow or adapt to develop their energy saving potential are also provided. These steps focus on initial efforts, development, implementation, and evaluation. A list of capital conservation investments frequently recommended in maxi-audits, a list of responsibilities for the various team members involved in TEM, and a description of resources for TEM are included.
