Final report on energy consumption

  1. 1. FINAL REPORT ON ENERGY CONSUMPTION I. A sum-up of the monthly energy consumption recorded in every school during the two years of partnership The first section of the final report deals with the individual situation in each partner school, ranging both the causes for the recorded energy consumption and, the solutions we have come up with, as well as the comparative graphs for the two years of the partnership.IV Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. KEN, Bielsko Biała, PolandThe steps we have already taken to save energy: 1. Switching off the light in the classrooms during the breaks, and in the halls during lessons 2. We have put up slogans like “Protect the Earth”; “Switch off the Light”, etc over switches in the school halls. 3. Also, we have adopted the policy of minimizing the time of airing classrooms so that it’s short, but intensiveFuture plans for saving energy: 1. Installing the system for automatic switching on and off the light 2. Monitoring the work of the computers and measuring their consumption of energy per every working day 3. Exchanging windows in the whole building 4. Renovating the roof 5. Energy saving lighting; suiting lighting to the kind of work being done IV Liceum Ogólnokształcące im.

  2. 2. Liceul Teoretic “Nicolae Iorga” Botoşani, RomaniaCauses: 1. the buildings are relatively old (1969), the insulation is the original one (brickwork and plaster); 2. two shifts (from Monday to Friday) from 8.00 AM to 8.00 PM. The auxiliary and the administrative staff work from 6.00 AM to 10.00 PM. 3. in October and April natural light is not at its best availability ; 4. The electrical and heating systems from the school buildings are made in the 1970s - high levels of loss; 5. In just a few classrooms were the classical bulbs replaced with economical ones; 6. The gyms are rented throughout the week from 9.00 PM to 10.00 PM; 7. Lots of electrical appliances which function non-stop (fridges, freezers, computers, laptops, etc.); 8. The window panels of the boarding school are made from wood (60%) and have been in use since 1969.Solutions: 1. Installing electrical sensors and taps in the bathrooms (done); 2. Replacing all the windows in the school with double glazed ones as well as the outer doors (done); 3. Raising awareness of both students and teachers regarding the rules of saving energy in school (all through the Partnership); 4. Providing Class A electrical appliances in order to replace the old ones which are important consumers of energy (partially done) 5. Complete rehabilitation of the boarding school.

  3. 3. Vrij Handels- en Technisch Instituut, Dendermonde, BelgiumCauses:1. Our school consists of several buildings, most of them shared with other schools thatbelong to the same ‘school community’. There is no separate measurement of energy forthe different schools in the community. We have however 1 building that is used only byour school + school for adult education. We decided to include only this building in theproject, as we have separate energy meters here.2. The insulation of the building is very poor. However, there are plans for renovation.This renovation (better insulation + new windows) might be carried out during the timeof our project.3. The energy source for heating the building is oil. Even if we only register theelectricity in the Partnership, we would like to continue our measurements of oil too. Thebuilding is heated from October till the beginning of Easter holidays (end of March –early April).4. 12 % of the electricity supplied by our provider is ‘green energy’ from renewablesources.Solutions: - promoting and implementing project activities; - enforcing government policy towards cutting down energy consumption; - recycling materials and using them instead of new ones - carrying out the restoration of the building Vrij Handels- en Technisch Instituut, Dendermonde, Belgium 7000 6000 5000 4000 3000 2000 1000 0 r ry No ver Fe ry ne r ly ch ril r t ay be be be Se gus Ju Ap ua a Ju ar M m o nu m em ct br M Au ve ce Ja O pt De
  4. 4. Istituto Tecnico Geometri „Brunelleschi”, Agrigento, ItalyCauses: 1. 12 multimedia laboratories and a large bar. 2. numerous security exits, as the law requires, that have access to fireproof stairs, so they are open for most of the morning, causing a huge heat dispersion 3. the roofs of the halls are very high and the cubature of the building is high 4. during the year we have had problems with the heating system so we have been compelled to use electrical heating 5. the electrical system dates back to 1986 so it doesn’t permit the use of saving energy bulbs but only neon lights. 6. the school has often pressed the Regional Province, owner of the building, to install photovoltaic panels on the roof, that could be useful not only to reduce the consumption ,but also to get profits and advantages. 7. a large gym that is used by private sport clubs and they use it until 10.00 p.m. for a local and territory requirement 8. a large open space that, for safety reasons, is lighted all the nightsSolutions: 1. To install photovoltaic panels as soon as the province buys them. The school has taken part to an European announcement that implies financial support to schools to buy and install photovoltaic panels. 2. The school will do its best for a more rational use of electrical energy both in the offices and in the places that are less used by students( Halls, corridors, etc) Istituto Tecnico Geometri „Brunelleschi”, Agrigento, Italy 18000 16000 14000 12000 10000 8000 6000 4000 2000 0 r ry ve r Fe a ry ne r Au y ch ril r t ay be No ve be be Se gus l Ju Ap ua Ju ar M m o nu m em ct br M ce Ja O pt De
  5. 5. General Secondary School “Panayot Volov”, Shumen, BulgariaCauses: 1. Old and badly insulated windows. 2. No outer insulation of the building. 3. Two shifts organization of work.Solutions:1. A change of the old windows with new ones has been recently taking place.2. Using of energy saving lighting.3. The most efficient using of daylight. The classrooms are painted in light colours.4 Switching off the devices when not being used.

  8. 8. Enver Kurttepeli Lisesi, Adana, TurkeyCauses: 1. Leaving unnecesary lights open. 2. Instead of unplugging them, leaving the computers on sleeping mode. 3. Leaving the airconditioners on while windows are open. 4. Poor insulation.Solutions: 1. Use day light as much as possible and turn off lights which arent used. 2. Unplugg the electrical devices at evenings when there is nobody at school. 3. Not use of air conditioners at nice wheather. 4.

It stands to reason that this is due to the action taken by each partner school in order to improve energy consumption.
  9. 9. II. The comparative analysis of the energy consumption recorded in the same months (October to March, respectively) in each year of the Partnership School Year 1 Year 2 Poland 186 176 Romania 11165.5 10318.3 Belgium 4624 2907.2 Italy 11496.2 10707.4 Bulgaria 6736.6 5845 Hungary 10561.6 12124.6 Turkey 2412.5 2184 It is obvious that the monthly energy consumption average decreased in thesecond year by comparison to the first one in each and every school involved in thePartnership, except for Hungary.III. The comparative analysis of the energy consumption between October andMarch in the first year and the second year, respectively, by referring it to the areaof each partner school.
