Energy Management: Maintaining a Cost Effective, Quality Environment for Learning. A Case Study of Program Development and Operation.
Wiley, James R.
Analyzed is the energy management program implemented in 1984 at the Akron Public Schools of Ohio. The program was implemented to address the problems of rising utilities costs and uncontrollable energy use. Background information ranging from simple attendance statistics to the utilities budget are provided as well as the procedure for choosing an automation system and contractor. Reflected upon is the adequacy of the school district's specifications concerning the program and automation system operations. Costs have decreased with subsequent installations of newer technology. In comparing energy consumptions and costs each year, substantial reductions have been made in both natural gas and electric usage. The report shows the success of the program's original goals and reveals additional coincidental benefits. (SI)
