Title: Maximizing Learning and Savings

Maximizing Learning and Savings by Going Green

What does it mean to be Green?
  • One common issue facing decision makers today is
    how to address environmental issues from
    volatile energy costs to the mammoth issue of
    climate impact from carbon fuel based
  • Proactive plan and approach to minimize the
    environmental footprint of your
  • You must measure what you want to manage
  • Develop Green metrics to track success

Sustainability Defined
To be sustainable is to define success by
financial results, as well as environmental and
social performance -- the triple bottom line of
Why go green? Why create a sustainable learning
  • Rising Energy Operations Costs
  • U.S. Dependence on Fossil Fuels US Energy
    Security Issues - Transportation Utilities are
    top 2 users of fossil fuels….
  • Buildings
  • Vehicle Fleets (Buses Maintenance Trucks,
    Equipment, etc.)
  • Reducing Buildings Impact on the Climate
  • Pollution GHG
  • Weather Pattern Severity Changes
  • Improving Indoor Environment Student/Faculty/Sta
    ff Productivity Improvements
  • Higher test scores for students
  • Teacher attraction and retention

A Green building project addresses more than
just the building……..
Green Building
Green Landscaping and Green Transportation
Green Operations, Services, Products, Programs
and Procurement
A green, sustainable facility incorporates all
three elements

  • Lower environmental impacts
  • Streamlined regulatory approvals
  • Higher Visibility and Marketability

Challenge on how to fund your sustainable green
  • Challenge has always been how to fund and repair
  • facilities
  • Budget cuts year after year in the MO budgets in
    order to minimize budget cuts in education. But
    the learning environment does affect the
    student's performance and there is now general
    acceptance in K12 and Higher Education that this
    concept is true.....students performance improves
    in a safe, comfortable and healthy efficiency retrofit of
  • Benefits that are realized by 'greening efforts.
  • PLUS the facility can reduce their operating
    costs long term.

How can it be measured?
  • CHPS
  • Green Globes
  • BOMA 360
  • APPA Green Cleaning Survey
  • What gets measured must get done

Healthy Schools
Economic Return
Cost savings plus so much more
Green Performance Contracting
A more comfortable, safe and sustainable world
AND money savings

What is Green Performance Contracting for
Schools Campuses?
  • Green Performance Contracting integrates the
    goals and objectives of a Green Building Rating
    System (LEED EB, CHPS, etc.) into the Energy
    Savings Performance Contracting Process to
  • Improve performance of existing buildings
  • Address outstanding facility needs
  • Improve operational efficiencies and reduce costs
  • Create a sustainable green environment for
    students, faculty staff
  • Achieve points/credits toward future green
    building certification
  • Demonstrate environmental social stewardship to
    local community
  • Be a change agent for a Green Future
  • Fund projects with operational and energy savings
    generated from facility improvement measures
  • Document measure results

Green Performance Contracting for Existing
School Buildings (K-12)
  • LEED EB OM and CHPS are applicable for existing
  • 97,000 existing public school buildings
  • 6.6 billion square feet of space on over 1
    million acres of land
  • Over 49 million public school students
  • More than 70 of buildings built before 1970
  • Schools spend over 7.8 billion on energy each
  • Students and faculty spend 85-90 of their time
  • Studies show that student achievement can be
    positively impacted by
  • improved ventilation
  • comfortable classroom temperatures
  • Increased day lighting
  • Schools buildings with comfortable environments
    attract and retain teachers and staff

Green Performance Contracting for Existing
School Buildings (Higher Education)
4,300 U.S. colleges and universities with almost
18 million students Average age of education
building is 40 years Colleges and universities
spend close to 2 billion each year on
energy The average university campus would save
250,000 just by changing the way it operates.
That's the equivalent of 122 cars of the road or
612 tons of CO2. Higher Education spent 17.8B
on construction in 2008, up from 12.7B the year
before. Expenditures grew 35 for new
construction and 48 for additions and
modernizations. Two-thirds of students indicate
the quality of campus facilities is essential or
very important Over 640 signatories of the
Presidents Climate Commitment for carbon
Why Green Performance Contracting for Schools and
  • Top Sustainability Needs
  • Reduce energy usage across all operations
  • Increase the use of energy from renewable sources
  • Reduce levels of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Simplify/streamline the reporting of energy and
    environmental data
  • Extend the effective life of equipment and assets
  • Reduce operating costs across the organization
  • Reduce the impact of energy cost volatility
  • Increase use of energy-efficient building systems
    and equipment
  • Reduce the cost of operations through energy
    efficiency and/or emissions credits
  • Demonstrate environmental social stewardship

American Recovery Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is a
787 billion dollar Federal investment into the
U.S. economy. The goals of the Recovery Act are
to create jobs and stimulate the economy. These
investments will be distributed through 130
separate funds. Each fund has unique set of rules
that cover allocation, distribution, and
implementation of the investments. All projects
funded by ARRA will be tracked and monitored by
the Federal Government.
Now that weve defined ARRA, lets talk about
funds specific to education.
ARRA education funding will help to drive the
following goals
Bolster budgets
  • Maintain budgets and ensure educators are
  • Provide training to teachers to improve education
  • Improve buildings to enhance educational
  • Address overcrowded schools and campuses with new
  • Implement green building standards

Build and renovate schools and campuses
  • Upgrade to 21st century classrooms
  • Advance student achievement through use of

Focus of our discussion
Invest in technology for our future
Facility improvements can provide additional
benefits that are core to your educational mission
  • Lower OM budget benefits all stakeholders
  • Higher job satisfaction can reduce turnover
  • Flexible facility design can accommodate growing
    student populations
  • Physical virtual security upgrades promote
    safer schools
  • Newer, cleaner, brighter and more comfortable
    classrooms promote staff and student productivity

Facility Upgrades
A safer, healthier more comfortable learning
Lower energy costs, Fewer unscheduled repairs
Reduced environmental impact
