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 benchmark compares a school's current baseload (electricity consumed when the school is closed) with that of the average of the last year. Schools should be aiming to reduce baseload over time and not increase it as equipment and lighting has become significantly more efficient over the last few years. Any increase should be tracked down as soon as it is discovered. Energy Sparks can be configured to send you an alert via an email or a text message if it detects this has happened.
A 1 kW increase in baseload is equivalent to an increase in annual electricity costs of £1,100.
This breakdown excludes electricity consumed by storage heaters and solar PV.
|School name||Change in baseload last week v. year (%)||Average baseload last year (kW)||Average baseload last week (kW)||Change in baseload last week v. year (kW)|
|Saltford C of E Primary School||41.3%||5.46||7.71||2.25|
|Sir Bernard Lovell Academy||-3.14%||26.8||26||-0.843|
