Embrace the Savings from Energy Efficiency and No-Cost Solar
Capturing energy savings enables districts to squeeze more out of tight budgets. Self-funding energy efficiency and the various methods to implement ESIP’s (energy saving improvement programs) and solar initiatives have helped districts offset operating costs for years. These opportunities are timelier than ever and can be undertaken simply and successfully. Session participants will learn how smart planning compounds available incentives and pays real benefits, how best to structure these improvements and how to avoid problems and pitfalls.

Energy Management Using Demand Response
This session is a very detailed, in-depth look at some of the best practices on how to make facilities more energy-efficient by claiming the low hanging fruit. In addition, the session will explain how your school district can then take those best practices and, using them in demand-response programs, create a steady revenue income to your district with no out-of-pocket expense. This will help your facilities become more energy-efficient, help lower your overall cost of operation, and allow your district to allocate money where it is needed most in the classroom.

A Fresh Look at Indoor Air Quality and Energy Savings
Despite the recent focus on energy savings, building systems are designed much the same way today as they have been for decades. Learn how trying to cut energy costs has led to moisture problems as mechanical units are shut down or operations reduced; and the movement to improve indoor air quality has resulted in designs that deliver more outside air into buildings –but there are questions as to whether that actually improves air quality. Discover how your district can reduce energy use, save money and improve air quality with a different design approach.
