Tennessee Univ., Knoxville. School Planning Lab.
These papers presented to educators within the state of Tennessee represent the latest thinking regarding techniques for long-range energy conservation when planning and constructing school facilities. The current and future availability of energy sources is summarized. Some of the wasteful practices consumers and manufacturers have practiced are cited and suggestions made for improvement. Codes and standards related to energy use in buildings are followed by some findings of energy usage studies including illumination levels, solar energy, and ventilation. Three completed solar heating projects are described. The final paper gives some advice for the operation and maintenance of heating and air-conditioning equipment and a systematic lighting maintenance program. (MLF)
