PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Manchester School District's portfolio consists of 22 buildings and 2.3 million square feet. The district has improved energy performance by 17% from a 2012 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2025. There was an increase in annual energy consumption resulting from the consumption of old oil reserves as part of a district-wide complete conversion to natural gas.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY PROPERTY

Manchester SD has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at 10 of its properties. There are 6 properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI, most of which can be attributed to the usage of historical oil at schools which will be converted solely to natural gas in the future.  

IDENTIFYING OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT

Manchester SD's portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 60 to 100 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2012. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
