Energy Conservation on Campus. Volume I. Guidelines.
Federal Energy Administration, Washington, DC.
The high cost of energy and the curtailment of primary preferred fuel has upset many long-standing maintenance and operation policies, forcing institutions to look quickly for ways to reduce energy usage. This booklet is designed to assist institutions of higher education in establishing or upgrading energy conservation programs. The development of the Campus Energy Management Program is discussed including elements of the program; commitment; energy conservation committee; an energy management officer; energy use and cost information; and results, measurement, and evaluation techniques. Energy consumption reduction categories that are detailed include "quick-fix" systems, "refit" systems, and systems capable of being converted. Each of these categories is presented in detail along with a checklist of ideas to implement and sustain an energy management program on the campus. (J9F)
