The Department of Labor forecasts the energy efficiency and management sector will double in size over the next several years. Ohio taxpayers, businesses, and institutions have saved over $2 for every dollar invested in energy efficiency programs for a total of $1.8 billion in savings. Through its high performance LEED building program, Cincinnati Public Schools saves $3 million in annual energy costs. Energy that is not used is the most cost effective source compared to any other installed energy generation. Emerging opportunities in the related energy fields will save dollars and provide employment opportunities in Cincinnati and across our region.
To make the best use of LEED high performance schools facilities, a comprehensive verifiable energy savings program that uses real facilities data to educate our students in the STEM energy fields will save resources and help prepare the energy auditors, technicians and managers of the future. Using national standards for energy efficiency, all school facilities can be benchmarked providing students with real world challenges to save resources, improve air quality and develop skills in building science and systems.
