Energy Conservation for Schools.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto.
Information intended for those concerned with the administration, planning, financing, operation, and maintenance of school facilities applies to both new and existing building. An examination of motivation and policies relating to energy conservation is followed by the methods used for quantitative assessment of energy savings relative to extra capital cost and operating personnel cost. Architectural decisions in designing new facilities that determine the basic energy-use patterns involved in operation are described. Available methods and equipment that can be used for energy conservation are identified. An assessment is made of available methods and equipment in terms of potential and usefulness in saving energy, first cost, reliablility, degree of complexity, and requirements for operating staff.
