School Comparison Tool

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.

Change in gas consumption between this holiday and the same the previous year

This is HTML content

This comparison shows the change in consumption the most recent holiday, and the same holiday a year ago. Schools should be looking to reduce holiday usage by switching heating and hot water off over holidays when it is often unnecessary. A significant increase from year to year suggests a school is not managing to reduce consumption, which would help mitigate some of the impacts of climate change. You can setup an Energy Sparks 'alert' to send you an email or text message just before a holiday to remind you to turn heating or hot water off.

An infinite value indicates the consumption in the first period was zero.
