Overview
  • Introduction to energy and schools needs and
    interests
  • Introduction to ENERGY STAR
  • Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and energy
    efficiency

3
K-12 Energy Profile
  • Annual energy bill for the nations 115,000 K-12
    schools over 6 billion
  • New construction because of increasing
    enrollment- over 3000 schools by 2005
  • Average school built in early 1960s
  • Energy efficiency cited as the most
    unsatisfactory building condition in over 50 of
    surveyed schools

4
ENERGY STAR
Objective Reduce emissions of greenhouse gases
through improved energy performance.

ENERGY STAR
  • ENERGY STAR is the symbol for superior energy
    performance
  • Voluntary program that helps businesses,
    institutions, and consumers save energy and money

7
How Does ENERGY STAR Fit In?
  • Managing School Building Energy Use and Costs
  • Design
  • Operations
  • Equipment
  • Occupants (behavior)

8
ENERGY STAR
  • Provides a way to track energy performance and
    compare to other schools nationwide and within
    own district
  • Reward progress along the scale
  • Offers technical, financing and outreach support
    to help schools identify, communicate and
    implement energy upgrades
  • Recognize superior performers

9
Program Offerings
  • Portfolio Manager Benchmark building energy
    performance
  • Target Finder Estimate energy use in new school
    construction
  • One-2-Five Discover level of organizational
    management in energy issues
  • Financing assistance
  • Technical assistance- Account Manager
  • Institutional Purchasing
  • INTERNET PRESENTATIONS

New School Design
  • Target Finder
  • Establish a design target
  • Estimate school energy use BEFORE its built
  • See how it compares to existing buildings
  • New Design Checklist
  • step-by-step considerations during design period

Missing Comparative Metrics
  • Is 10 MPG high or low for an automobile?
  • Is 50 Kbtu/SF/YR high or low for an office
    building?

Answer Even some facility experts dont know
Answer Common Knowledge

Benchmarking Provides Schools...
  • A score of a buildings energy performance
  • Priorities for upgrading individual buildings in
    a multi-building portfolio
  • Mechanism for tracking changes in buildings
    score over time
  • Verification of benefits of services performed in
    building(s)
  • Recognition for top performers

16
Performance Rating System
How efficient is my school? How does it
compare? Is it among the best? Am I using my
dollars wisely?
  • No use requirements
  • Internet based
  • PE certified

Over 225 schools labeled through 4/2001
17
What Data Do You Need?
  • Location (weather normalized)
  • Gross floor area
  • Weekly operating hours
  • Months in use
  • Number of students
  • Twelve monthly entries of energy consumption data
  • Other, e.g. cafeteria, A/C

  • Money for Your Energy Upgrades
  • Five-Stage Approach to Building Upgrades
  • One-2-Five Energy Management Diagnostic
  • Benchmarking Tool
  • Institutional Purchasing

24
ENERGY STAR Partners
  • 130 school districts
  • Over 2800 schools benchmarked since 4/2000, 34
    states
  • Over 235 labels

25
IEQ and Energy Efficiency
  • Ventilation, indoor air quality, temperature, and
    lighting most unsatisfactory environmental
    conditions in school buildings
  • ASHRAE Standard 62-1989 15cfm can mean high
    energy costs

26
PE Guidelines
  • The building's indoor environment must be
    verified by a Licensed Professional Engineers as
    meeting industry standards for lighting levels,
    ventilation, thermal comfort, and control of
    indoor air pollutants.

27
Is the IEQ in my school acceptable if we have a
Label?
  • The objective of the PE's on-site evaluation is
    to make a point-in-time professional assessment
    of the compliance with the four indoor
    environment criteria against accepted industry
    standards. This evaluation, however, does not
    equate to meeting all measures of indoor
    environmental quality, nor does it represent a
    certification of acceptable indoor air quality.

28
IEQ/Energy Efficiency Paper
  • Incorrectly done energy upgrades can adversely
    impact indoor air quality
  • IEQ upgrades and energy efficiency improvements
    can work together
  • Paper available at 1-888-STAR-YES
    (1-888-782-7937)

29
How Does ENERGY STAR Benefit Kids?
  • Healthier learning and teaching environment
  • More comfortable temperatures
  • Acceptable IEQ
  • Healthier regional and global environment
  • Cleaner air
  • Learn about how their school is doing its part
