The College and University Energy Management Workbook.
Burns, Josh; And Others
An energy management workbook for colleges is presented by a task force composed of representatives of the American Council on Education, the National Association of College and University Business Officers, and the Association of Physical Plant Administrators of Colleges and Universities. In addition to worksheets and exercises, information is included on energy assessment, management practices, and financing mechanisms. The workbook is organized into three basic sections: diagnosis, program development, and implementation. Worksheets for the college president, vice president, and physical plant director are provided to help identify: (1) current energy-related activities; (2) the campus decision-makers on energy; and (3) facilities, maintenance, and energy conditions. Charts that illustrate by year the campus square footage, annual campus energy costs, and the number of employees in the plant department are presented. Key points that should be considered during a tour of the campus central plant and other facilities are identified. Exercises are included on: collecting energy use data, evaluating past and projecting future energy use, analyzing energy costs, and assessing facilities' energy condition. Information is also included on: energy efficiency financing, developing an energy management consensus, scheduling energy management activities, financial evaluation of investments, and the planning and implementation of the energy management program. Definitions of energy audits and analysis and a glossary of technical and financial terms are included. (SW)
