October 12th - Retrofit Packages for Schools

2022/23 Efficient and Healthy Schools Webinars
Retrofit Packages for Schools: Performance Requirements, Energy Savings and Cost

Recording and Slides

Speakers discussed newly released retrofit packages consisting of complementary efficiency measures to provide greater savings and benefits. Four retrofit packages were covered: building management system upgrade, boiler replacement, chiller replacement, and RTU replacement. Discussion included performance requirements that schools can use as a template to develop project requirements, energy savings data that are calculated using an energy simulation analysis of prototype school buildings, and implementation cost data that give a rough estimate for planning purposes. 

Additionally, speakers discussed their experience working with schools on retrofit projects, including the types of efficiency measures using this package approach, and highlighting non-energy benefits, such as improvements to indoor environmental quality.
