Step 2 - Assess Performance and Opportunities

Step Two

 

The second step of the energy management process focuses on assessing energy performance and identifying opportunities for improvement. Assessing energy performance, both past and present, is essential to establishing a baseline of energy consumption and costs. This information provides a starting point with which to monitor and measure progress with energy efficiency efforts.

Evaluating the operational performance of major facilities and systems will highlight many low-cost/no-cost energy efficiency opportunities and draw attention to more cost-intensive long-term projects.

To assess energy performance and opportunities, a school district needs to:

  1. Gather and track energy consumption and costs.
  2. Establish a baseline of consumption and costs.
  3. Benchmark energy performance between facilities.
  4. Analyze energy use patterns and trends.
  5. Perform technical assessments and audits.

Step Two KEEPS Energy Management Toolkits

The KEEPS Energy Management Toolkits are self-guided training modules that provide information and resources about the components of the seven-step energy management process. There are 15 KEEPS Energy Management Toolkits for Step 2 - Assess Performance and Opportunities. The Step 2 Toolkits include presentations and several Microsoft Excel-based spreadsheets to use for each type of on-site energy efficiency assessment. NOTE: These spreadsheets are updated frequently by the KEEPS technical staff of engineers and energy managers. Please contact KEEPS to be sure you have the most current version.
