Title: Keynote Overcoming Barriers to School Efficiency


1
Keynote -- Overcoming Barriers to School
Efficiency
  • Richard G. Hawes, Director
  • Department of Facilities Management

2
We Walk The Walk……..
Hybrid Electric Car Of Energy Resources Team
3
Common Barriers
  • Lack of Awareness
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Controlling New School Design
  • Cost Constraints New Buildings
  • Resource Constraints Existing Buildings

4
Overcoming Lack of
Awareness
  • Track Utility Costs And Communicate To CFO
  • Utilize Free Resources To Compare Your Energy
    Performance To Benchmarks
  • Are You Significantly Below Average?

5
Energy Star Ratings for Sampled MCPS Schools
6
Overcoming Lack of
Awareness
  • Show Potential Savings
  • Use Free Resources
  • State And Federal Programs / Tools / Websites
  • Beware Of Vendor Claims, Credibility
  • Average Retrofit Program Among County Agencies
    Has ROI gt 20
  • Energy Use In New Schools Has Decreased Up To 30
    Without Increasing First Costs

7
Overcoming Lack of
Motivation
  • Green Sells
  • Even When Energy Savings Isnt Understood
  • Award / Reward Systems
  • Share Of Savings Returned To School (SERT)
  • Operated By Contractor For MCPS
  • Looking At External Awards This Year Energy
    Star Plaques, Earth Apple Awards

8
Overcoming Lack of
Motivation
  • Curriculum Units On Energy
  • Developing Units In All Disciplines
  • Create A Culture Of Energy Conservation
  • Example Photovoltaic Unit At Goshen ES

Overcoming Lack of
Motivation
  • Curriculum Modules Being Tied Directly Into
    System Wide Instructional Planning Model
  • Must Complement, Not Compete With Basic
    Instructional Goals

Controlling New School Design
  • Legislation For Life Cycle Cost Analysis / Energy
    Budgets
  • If You Have It On The Books, Enforce It
  • County Code 8-14A New Building Design
  • Originated In Montgomery County By Community
    Advisory Groups
  • Public Schools Construction Program In Maryland
    Also Requires Life Cycle Cost Analysis

14
Controlling New School Design
  • Adopt Guidelines To Direct A/E Firms On Critical
    Points
  • Official Energy Codes Are Weak
  • Enforce IES Design Light Levels
  • Standardize On Selected High Efficiency Lamps
  • Enforce Energy Efficient HVAC Types, Standardize
  • Standardization Improves Maintenance

15
Cost Constraints New Buildings
  • Efficient Buildings Are Not Necessarily More
    Expensive
  • Based On DOE Research, And Local Experience Over
    The Past 15 Years, Integrated Designs Improve
    Quality And Efficiency, Without Increasing Total
    Cost Of Project
  • Efficiency Requires More Thinking, Not More Money

16
Cost Control By Integrated Design

18
Cost Constraints New Buildings
  • Exception Geothermal Energy Exchange
  • 0 to 20 Higher HVAC System Cost
  • Rapid Payback Through Combined Energy And
    Maintenance Savings.

Geothermal/Ground Source Heat Pump Systems dont
actually create heat. Instead, they move heat
that already exists. Water is circulated through
a closed Ground Loop system consisting of HDPE
pipes buried beneath the ground.
21
Geothermal Meets Challenges of Customers
  • Improved Operating Efficiencies
  • Energy Reduced 25 To 50
  • Maintenance Reduced 66
  • Maximize Building Comfort
  • Room By Room Control
  • Heating Or Cooling Always Available
  • Quiet Operation
  • Credit Toward LEED Certification

22
Installing The Geo Heat Exchanger
Drilling The Boreholes 100 To 300 May Be Needed
23
Resource Constraints Existing Buildings
  • Energy Capital Improvement Program
  • Since 1978 Has Demonstrated Positive Cash Flow
    Over Each 6-year Funding Cycle
  • Find The Smoking Ballast?
  • Use Utility Operating Funds For Incentive
    Programs, And Quick Payback Projects (lt1 Year)

24
Resource Constraints Existing Buildings
  • New Funding Options Were Looking At This Year
  • QZAB Funding
  • Aging School Funds
  • Lease Agreements (Through MCPS Master Lease With
    Bank Of America)
  • Federal School Renovation Program
  • Community Energy Loan Program (Maryland)

25
Successes To Date
  • 70 Of Schools Have Lighting Retrofits
  • 85 Of Schools Have Energy Management Control
    Systems
  • 3.5 Million Saved Through Occupant Awareness
    Programs
  • All New Buildings Meet Energy Guidelines
  • One Geothermal School Open, One In Design

26
New Initiatives
  • Energy Resources Team Created
  • Energy Manager Position Created
  • Utility Analyst Position Created
  • Energy Now Reports To Directors Office
  • With Existing Five Energy Management Technicians,
    And New Customer Service Specialist

27
New Initiatives
  • Energy Resources Team Created (2001)

Energy Control Central For 170 Schools
28
New Initiatives
  • Pursue Outside Funding Opportunities Of Energy
    Improvements
  • Utility Deregulation
  • Contracts For Electricity And Natural Gas Proving
    Very Rewarding
  • Internet Based Automation Systems For SERT And
    Energy Management
