We are excited to once again to report on the energy conservation potential of Ontario school boards, this time including all of the province’s school boards. The top 10 boards – those with the least total energy savings potential – will be announced over the last week of April at http://sustainableschools.ca/. The 2016 Top Energy Performing School Boards report will be available shortly thereafter on the Sustainable Schools website.
The report is based on energy use data that Ontario school boards are required to report to the Ministry of Energy on an annual basis, as per requirements of the Green Energy Act. The most recent report uses data for the 2013-2014 school year.
Sustainable Schools is a program of Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. This ground-breaking initiative goes beyond energy reporting and benchmarking to establish best practice energy targets for individual schools, and thus how much energy each school and school board can save.
