    2 Anyone Can Effectively Manage Energy Efficiency Programs in Schools Introduction Energy is a big deal. The rises and fluctuations in energy costs have the potential to impact a school’s operating budget in a dramatic way, but many schools. This manager's guide covers the most important areas of energy cost cutting. It examines the aims of energy management and describes the most effective tools and techniques for reaching the desired goals. Chapters discuss the auditing process, energy bills, economic analysis and life cycle costing, lighting, heating and air conditioning, combustion processes and industrial waste, steam.

This guide is a primary resource for developing and implementing a district- or school- wide operations and maintenance (O&M) program that focuses on energy efficiency.

Guide to Operating and Maintaining EnergySmart Schools | Department of Energy. provides resources like this Guide to Operating and Maintaining EnergySmart Schools to assist school decision­makers in planning, financing, operating, and maintaining energy­efficient, high­performance schools.

It also offers education and training for building industry professionals. DOE’s EnergySmart Schools Program. K–12 schools spend more than $8 billion on energy annually, making energy the second­highest operat­ ing expenditure for schools after personnel costs.

Recognizing this, the U.S. Department of Energy sponsors the EnergySmart Schools Program, which encourages the building of new schools that exceed. This module has five lessons that describe energy saving strategies. Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced.

Evaluation & Certification. This module contains a test to evaluate your mastery of the content and provides an opportunity for certification. The guide allows users to adapt and implement suggested O&M (operating and maintaining) strategies to address specific energy efficiency goals.

It recognizes and expands on existing tools and resources that are widely used throughout the high-performance school industry. The guide is organized into the following sections: (1) Chapter 1: Identifying Energy Savings and Getting Started introduces.

Most K schools could save 25% of their energy costs by being smart about energy. Nationwide, the savings potential is $6 billion. While improving energy use in buildings and busses, schools are likely to create better places for teaching and learning, with better lighting, temperature control, acoustics, and air quality.

This brochure, targeted to school facilities managers and business Author: Energy Smart Schools Team. Operating costs are those required for the day-to-day maintenance and administration of your business. People also commonly refer to operating costs as operating expenses, operational expenses, operating expenditures, operational expenses, or OPEX.

One of the primary components of operating costs is the cost of goods sold (COGS).3/5(7). The Con Edison Smart Kids Energy Efficiency Program comes complete with a teacher book filled with lesson plans and engaging activities that can be used inside and outside of the classroom.
