Council of Great Cities Schools


Today s talk

Today’s Talk

  • Full Service Community School District

  • Sustainability Coordinator

  • Collaborative for High Performing Schools

  • Solar America study

  • Green House Gas footprint

  • Energy Efficiency

  • Portfolio Manager implementation

  • Nutrition Services Master Plan

  • Sustainable Custodial Practices


Full service community school district

Full Service Community School District

  • Create a district that fosters community schools

  • Implications for Facilities Department:

    • Consider the full spectrum of community facilities and support opportunities for joint-use and educational partnerships

    • Provide these services as a sustainable community benefit: limit greenhouse gas emissions, optimize construction and life cycle costs, and encourage walking and bicycling


Sustainability coordinator

Sustainability Coordinator

  • In 2011, OUSD intends to establish a Sustainability Coordinator Position:

    • Improve energy efficiency, track and reduce greenhouse emissions related to energy, and integrate sustainability

    • Project Management Plan.

      • Prioritize measures

      • Develop and implement behavioral supports  institutional change

    • Green Academy programs.

      • Integrate school-based initiatives with district goals.


Green buildings

Green Buildings

Collaborative for High Performing Schools

In 2007, adopted California’s Collaborative for High Performance Schools (“CHPS”) as green building standard for all modernization and new construction.

One of ONLY 45 Districts in California (out of 1000+)

First district in California to receive State matching grants for verified green school buildings

OUSD expects to receive approximately $600,000 in additional State matching grants for CHPS projects in 2010 -2013.

Solar america showcase

Solar America Showcase

The grant has allowed Oakland, Berkeley, and West Contra Costa

Unified School Districts to receive up to $500,000 in technical assistance from U.S. Department of Energy to conduct comprehensive solar generation analyses of district schools and facilities and to develop Solar Master Plans for each District.


Expected results solar america study

Expected Results:Solar America Study

Installing photovoltaic systems designed to produce 75% of

consumption (thus “zeroing out” a building’s electricity

expense), is estimated to produce:

• Annual savings: $2,868,123

• Annual electricity production: 15,095,386 kWh

• Annual greenhouse gases avoided: 3,834 metric tons

• Annual Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) earned: 15,095

U s epa portfolio manager

U.S. EPA Portfolio Manager

  • Industry standard for tracking a building’s energy usage

  • Track total utility-based greenhouse gas emissions

  • Track multiple energy and water meters for each facility

  • Benchmark facilities relative to their past performance

  • Monitor energy costs

  • Share building data with others inside or outside of organization


Ousd greenhouse gas footprint

OUSD Greenhouse Gas Footprint

Solar America Study allowed us to benchmark energy usage in all buildings, and calculate our greenhouse gas footprint:

Gas 6,107 metric tons of CO2

Electric 4,826 Metric tons of CO2

Total 10,933 metric tons of CO2

Knowledge is power: what to do next?


Current ousd energy projects

Current OUSD Energy Projects

Working with local utility:

  • 3 High Schools in 2011

  • Retro-commissioning measures and verifications

  • 595,000 ft2


Energy and water conservation

Energy and Water Conservation

Energy Usage:

All new construction emphasizes low energy and efficiency. Minimum of 40 points in the CHPS scorecard

New classrooms are built without air conditioning as standard.

Water Conservation:

On-site retention of storm water in all new projects.

Re-use of stored storm water for irrigation where feasible.


Nutrition services master plan

Nutrition Services Master Plan

Nutrition services is rolling out a master plan for the following initiatives and goals:

Develop and utilize a sustainable local food system

Expand composting and waste diversion in Nutrition Services

Model and utilize urban agriculture

Promote healthy consumption


Sustainable custodial practices

Sustainable Custodial Practices

Recycling

Waste Diversion

  • 41% waste in 2010

  • 44% waste in 2011

    Savings

  • ~ $50,000 per month district-wide in 2010

  • Calculation is pending for 2011

  • 50% recycling – could save an additional $20,000/month

  • 24 of 91 sites hae organic waste accounts in 2010; 32 sites added in 2011

    Green Gloves summit

  • All custodial staff

  • Seminar on successful green cleaning programs, including one within Oakland

  • First summit - October 8, 2010; next summit January 2012
