This list is not intended to endorse the qualifications of the firms listed to perform work other than the energy auditing services authorized in the RFQ, the Energy Audit Requirements, or. districts to improve energy efficiency in K school buildings. This guide provides information on how school districts, as extensions of local government, have planned and implemented programs to improve energy efficiency in existing school buildings and to incorporate energy efficiency in new school File Size: 1MB.

The Oregon Department of Energy led the renovations in the Lowell School District near Eugene, Oregon, to help the district boost its energy efficiency. Oregon’s state energy office, from its own funds, provided two loans to the district totaling about $ million to.

An energy management program assesses building energy performance, identifies ways to improve, and establishes good energy use practices for continuous improvement. Focusing on organizational energy use gives you more control and ability to reduce your operating costs, increase overall energy efficiency, and promote more sustainable and.

In andan individual may claim a credit for (1) 10 percent of the cost of qualified energy efficiency improvements and (2) the amount of the residential energy property expenditures paid or incurred by the taxpayer during the taxable year (subject to the overall credit limit of $).

You must live in Oregon and heat your home with electricity provided by Portland General Electric or Pacific Power. Select a contractor and have the work completed.

To receive an Energy Trust cash incentive, contact a qualified energy-efficiency-trained Energy Trust trade ally contractor or any contractor with a current Oregon Construction.

Energy Trust helps Oregon residential, business and nonprofit utility ratepayers use less energy, save on energy costs and move to renewable resources. Updated and Improved Standards Review Database.

The online standards review database has been updated to provide greater functionality, offering a single sign in feature with dashboard, so users can easily access and highlight those items that require attention.

On average, zero energy schools can use between 65%–80% less energy than conventionally constructed schools, and the remaining energy required is supplied by renewable energy. In addition, zero energy schools can become prominent community landmarks that educate a new generation of students with science, technology, engineering, and.

How to Talk to Schools About Energy Efficiency School Districts Making a Difference: Davenport Community School District, IA, has been an ENERGY STAR partner since The district’s energy program is guided by ENERGY STAR’s Guidelines for Energy Management.

Davenport has been able to reduce costs per student to. Energy Efficiency covers wide-ranging topics related to energy efficiency, energy savings, energy consumption, energy Energy efficiency guidelines for Oregon schools. book, and energy transition in all sectors across the globe.

Coverage includes energy efficiency policies at all levels of governance enabling social, organizational, and economic factors of sufficient and efficient behavior and decisions; analysis and modeling of energy.

To ensure that your school is water- and energy-efficient, you must first work with the school system to establish clear consumption goals. Given your climatic region and building type, this "energy budget" must be realistic, and it must be based on the potential of current, proven energy-saving technologies.

Or perhaps you’ve been managing energy for years, but you’d like to take your program to the next level. Sincetens of thousands of businesses and organizations have worked with EPA’s ENERGY STAR program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create financial value by improving the energy efficiency of their buildings and plants.

A $1 million grant from the Energy Department’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) program helped the school district incorporate energy efficiency measures, including an energy efficient integrated heating and cooling system. This feature, along with upgrades to the building envelope and lighting, are estimated to reduce.

PG&E offers a standards-based curriculum, professional development and online resources to teachers in public and private school programs that are focused on energy conservation, efficiency and safety. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books.

The property assessed clean energy (PACE) model is an innovative mechanism for financing energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements on private property. PACE programs exist for: Commercial properties (commonly referred to as Commercial PACE or C-PACE) Residential properties (commonly referred to as Residential PACE or R-PACE).

Applying these guidelines will result in schools that are healthy, comfortable, energy efficient, resource efficient, water efficient, safe, secure, adaptable, and easy to operate and maintain. This manual provides details and implementation rules for individual design strategies.

Within the framework of the Energy Conservation Act, there is a provision to introduce energy managers as well as energy auditors. These powers and functions of the Bureau are expressed in Chapter IV, Section 13(o) (p) (q) (r) and (s) of the Act.
