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 the energy consumed per pupil each year in £.
This benchmark is best used for economic comparisons.
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.
The table provides the information in more detail. Energy Sparks doesn't have a full set of meter data for some schools, for example rural schools with biomass or oil boilers, so this comparison might not be relevant for all schools. The comparison excludes the benefit of any solar PV which might be installed - so looks at energy consumption only.
