Common barriers l.jpg
Common Barriers

  • Lack of Awareness

  • Lack of Motivation

  • Controlling New School Design

  • Cost Constraints – New Buildings

  • Resource Constraints – Existing Buildings

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland


Slide4 l.jpg

Overcoming Lack of

Awareness

  • Track Utility Costs And Communicate To CFO

  • Utilize Free Resources To Compare Your Energy Performance To Benchmarks

    • Are You Significantly Below Average?

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland



Slide6 l.jpg

Overcoming Lack of

Awareness

  • Show Potential Savings

    • Use Free Resources

      • State And Federal Programs / Tools / Websites

      • Beware Of Vendor Claims, Credibility

    • Average Retrofit Program Among County Agencies Has ROI > 20 %

    • Energy Use In New Schools Has Decreased Up To 30 % Without Increasing First Costs

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland


Overcoming lack of l.jpg
Overcoming Lack of

Motivation

  • GreenSells

    • Even When Energy Savings Isn’t Understood

  • Award / Reward Systems

    • Share Of Savings Returned To School (SERT)

      • Operated By Contractor For MCPS

    • Looking At External Awards This Year – Energy Star Plaques, Earth Apple Awards

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland


Overcoming lack of8 l.jpg
Overcoming Lack of

Motivation

  • Curriculum Units On Energy

    • Developing Units In All Disciplines

    • Create A Culture Of Energy Conservation

    • Example: Photovoltaic Unit At Goshen ES

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland


Overcoming lack of10 l.jpg
Overcoming Lack of

Motivation

  • Curriculum Modules Being Tied Directly Into System Wide Instructional Planning Model

    • Must Complement, Not Compete With Basic Instructional Goals

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland


Controlling new school design l.jpg
Controlling New School Design

  • Legislation For Life Cycle Cost Analysis / Energy Budgets

    • If You Have It On The Books, Enforce It

    • County Code 8-14A – New Building Design

      • Originated In Montgomery County By Community Advisory Groups

    • Public Schools Construction Program In Maryland Also Requires Life Cycle Cost Analysis

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland


Controlling new school design14 l.jpg
Controlling New School Design

  • Adopt Guidelines To Direct A/E Firms On Critical Points

  • Official Energy Codes Are Weak

    • Enforce IES Design Light Levels

    • Standardize On Selected High Efficiency Lamps

    • Enforce Energy Efficient HVAC Types, Standardize

  • Standardization Improves Maintenance

Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland


Cost constraints new buildings l.jpg
Cost Constraints – New Buildings

  • Efficient Buildings Are Not Necessarily More Expensive:

    • Based On DOE Research, And Local Experience Over The Past 15 Years, Integrated Designs Improve Quality And Efficiency, Without Increasing Total Cost Of Project

    • Efficiency Requires More Thinking, Not More Money

Cost constraints new buildings18 l.jpg
Cost Constraints – New Buildings

  • Exception: Geothermal Energy Exchange

    • 0% to 20% Higher HVAC System Cost

    • Rapid Payback Through Combined Energy And Maintenance Savings.

Geothermal Meets Challenges of Customers create heat. Instead, they move heat that already exists. Water is circulated through a closed Ground Loop system consisting of HDPE pipes buried beneath the ground.

  • Improved Operating Efficiencies

    • Energy Reduced 25% To 50%

    • Maintenance Reduced 66%

  • Maximize Building Comfort

    • Room By Room Control

    • Heating Or Cooling Always Available

    • Quiet Operation

  • Credit Toward LEED Certification

  • Energy Capital Improvement Program

    • Since 1978 Has Demonstrated Positive Cash Flow Over Each 6-year Funding Cycle

  • Find The Smoking Ballast?

  • Use Utility Operating Funds For Incentive Programs, And Quick Payback Projects (<1 Year)

  • New Funding Options We’re Looking At This Year

    • QZAB Funding

    • Aging School Funds

    • Lease Agreements (Through MCPS Master Lease With Bank Of America)

    • Federal School Renovation Program

    • Community Energy Loan Program (Maryland)

Successes to date l.jpg
Successes To Date create heat. Instead, they move heat that already exists. Water is circulated through a closed Ground Loop system consisting of HDPE pipes buried beneath the ground.

  • 70 % Of Schools Have Lighting Retrofits

  • 85 % Of Schools Have Energy Management Control Systems

  • $3.5 Million Saved Through Occupant Awareness Programs

  • All New Buildings Meet Energy Guidelines

    • One Geothermal School Open, One In Design
