Saving Schoolhouse Energy. Final Report.
Rudy, John; And Others
The objective of the Saving Schoolhouse Energy Program was to generate information that school administrators and federal energy/education decision makers could use to identify ways of implementing specific, economical remedies to reduce energy waste in schools. This program was designed to have five phases: (1) Conduct an energy audit of ten "typical" elementary schools in various locations to identify energy conservation opportunities with an attractive payback period; (2) Design the selected retrofit modifications for these schools; (3) Install the retrofit modifications and verify their installation; (4) Monitor the energy use of the buildings after retrofit and compare with the energy use prior to modification; and (5) Develop a plan to disseminate the information to school districts and others interested in energy conservation. Funding, procedures, problems, results, and conclusions related to these phases are summarized in this report. Supplements present information on energy conservation programs and measures for school systems. (Author/DC)
