Renewable Energy and Enabling Technology and Services Evaluation Frameworks (REETSEFs) for Education Sector

Report


Type Of Work


  • Report

Abstract


  • The i-Hub living laboratories activity stream has the objective to quantify (i.e. analyse measurable data) and qualify (i.e. develop insights into reasons, motivations and opinions) the potential for innovative technologies and the integration of technologies in educational settings to add value to renewable energy, enabling schools to transition to a net-zero energy/demand future while simultaneously contributing to occupant wellbeing, comfort and health. A nominal target of a 25% increase in the value of renewable energy for education, relative to business-as-usual (BAU), was hypothesised. In order to quantify this, key performance indicators (KPIs) will need to be calculated.

    This Renewable Energy and Enabling Technology and Services Evaluation Framework (REETSEF) for the Education Sector defines the KPIs and methods of evaluation to be used to assess the impact of a technology upgrade1 on the value of renewable energy to an educational facility under the i-Hub living laboratory activity stream. This report should be read in conjunction with the complementary report: Living Labs Education Sector Baselines and Key Performance Indicators. Each educational facility operating as an i-Hub living laboratory will also have a corresponding operations manual, which will detail the methods by which this REETSEF will be implemented.
