This tool allows you to compare the energy performance of a number of schools within a Local Authority group or across the whole of Energy Sparks. The aim is to allow you to identify the best and worst performing schools to provide examples of best practice and to identify the schools needing the most support to improve their energy management.This is title content
This comparison benchmark is an alternative to the more commonly used per pupil energy comparison benchmark.
Generally, per pupil benchmarks are appropriate for electricity (should be proportional to the appliances e.g. ICT in use), but per floor area benchmarks are more appropriate for gas (size of building which needs heating). Overall, energy use comparison on a per pupil basis is probably more appropriate than on a per floor area basis, but this analysis can be useful in some circumstances.This is HTML content
