Energy Management for Human Service Agencies. Second Edition.
Academy for Educational Development, Washington, DC.
Concerned about the effect rising energy costs would have on their local affiliates, building consultants for national social welfare agencies have been advocating the initiation of energy management and conservation programs. This manual, a three-part educational and planning tool, is a key element in a program developed to help local agencies conserve energy and save dollars. Section 1 is an introduction to energy management. It addresses concerns about the rising costs of energy and outlines a nine-step program to minimize these costs. This section also introduces sections 2 and 3 and explains how to use them. Section 2 is a resource section that contains a glossary of energy management terms; a compendium of articles and exercises relating to heating, cooling, lighting, and other building systems; and a detailed bibliography of other energy reference works. Section 3 is a workbook that consists of a step-by-step energy conservation plan that is practical and based on the principle of agency self-help. (MLF)
