Living Labs Educational Sector Energy Baseline and Key Performance Indicators

Report


Type Of Work


  • Report

Abstract


  • Education facilities (schools) are characterised by high levels of energy consumption, which represent a large percentage of the facilities running cost. In the US, for example, schools constitute 8% of the total commercial buildings energy use and their energy bills are the second-highest operating expense, following the salaries. In addition, electricity demand in school buildings is expected to rise in the near future due to higher student numbers and a more intensive use of technologies as pedagogical tools.

    The aim of this report is to collate a range of existing energy KPIs and data for the education sector domestically and internationally. These KPIs will establish a point of reference to benchmark the Australian school’s energy consumption, enabling the assessment of the value proposition of renewable energy technologies.

    The education facilities covered in this report include schools of different levels from preschools to high schools (secondary school), together with special schools and colleges (years 11 and 12).
