Reducing Energy Demand
Buildings that are designed to be low carbon but are not used in the most energy efficient manner cannot save energy.
10% to 20% of excess energy consumption can be saved through behavioural change. We must therefore encourage the setting of challenging targets and ensure that the best possible use of energy data can be made by schools to promote behaviour change.
Use this example as a guide to evaluate your school.
