The fundamentals of high energy efficiency schools lie in design standards, commissioning, operations, building automation and organizational alignment.
Sustainable Schools is pleased to announce the top energy performing school boards in Ontario, based on reported data for the September 2016 – August 2017 school year.
Enerlife is happy to announce the publication of the 2017 Ontario EcoSchools Energy Performance Study, comparing the energy performance of certified EcoSchools compared to non-certified schools in Ontario.
Together with Toronto & Region Conservation, we are happy to announce the top energy performing school boards in Ontario, based on reported data for the September 2014 – August 2015 school year.
Enerlife was asked to compare the EcoSchools scores for certified schools with the school board energy data that we have been analyzing and reporting on over the years through Toronto and Region Conservation’s Sustainable Schools program.
Enerlife was pleased to present at and sponsor the recent 2017 EcoSchools Board Conference. Brian Dundas of Toronto and Region Conservation and our President, Ian Jarvis, co-presented our multi-year work on the Sustainable Schools program. In recent years, this...
We are excited to once again report on energy conservation potential of Ontario school boards, this time including all of the province’s school boards.
Our experience with achieving dramatic savings in HVAC systems in commercial and institutional buildings was profiled at the Energy Into Action event.
York Catholic District School Board is the most energy efficient school board in Ontario, from among the 45 school boards analyzed for our project with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. Take a look at their estimated savings potential and other Top Ten board profiles at Sustainable Schools. These are the school boards with energy use intensity closest to the target (based on good performance standards from the Sustainable Schools database), that is, with the lowest energy savings potential.
We’re excited to announce that Toronto and Region Conservation will be publishing the Top Energy Performing Boards report at the end of June, as part of the Sustainable Schools program. For this project we analyzed data posted by 45 school boards (which represent almost three-quarters of all schools in Ontario) as a requirement of Ontario’s Green Energy Act. Every school has been assessed, adjusting for weather and school-specific variables, to establish its energy savings potential relative to good performance standards from the Sustainable Schools national database. The savings potential for all individual schools has been rolled up to arrive at our ranking of the top ten boards.
