Follow up check

Check to see if you've made a difference to the behaviour in your school or your school's data

You've made some changes to your school's energy consumption.  Now's the time to see the impact you've made. 

There are two ways of doing this.

First if you carried out a spot check (e.g. lights and equipment at break times, lunchtime or after school, temperatures, whether people are wearing warm clothes or if doors and windows are open in cold weather), repeat this.  What do you find?  Is there an improvement over all?  Are there some places where the energy saving message hasn't gotten through,  or are there other reasons for those areas not to comply?

Next check the data. 

Compare the chart for the week before your intervention with the chart for the week after.  Is there a difference? 

Don't worry if you don't see any behavioural or data changes yet.  Remind everyone about the energy saving message - you might want to do this through posters, displays, or assemblies.  Then check again. 

Make checking a regular part of your Energy Team work so you can see straight away the impact you're making on your school's energy use and carbon emissions.
