Susliving Energy Monitoring Programme

Susliving Energy Monitoring Programme

Susliving is delighted to announce that the following schools are participating in The Susliving Energy Monitoring Program :
Scoil Pobail Ossori Kilkenny, St Mary’s CBS Carlow, School of the Holy Spirit Kilkenny, St Patrick’s Cathedral Grammar School in Dublin, Grennan College Thomastown and East Glendalough School.
These schools are incredibily eager to get the Energy Monitoring Programme into action so that they can see the benefits and cost savings before the summer holidays. The students in these schools have taken on the Programme with great enthusiasm and drive.

The Susliving Energy Monitoring Program is designed to improve students’ and teachers’ awareness around energy usage and to encourage energy conservation. The workshops are based on practical activities and classroom modules that are easy to deliver. Susliving delivers a series of workshops and the students and teachers work on bridging activities between the workshops. The key element in the Programme is the Energy Team which is comprised of students and staff and who carry out a range of energy monitoring and assessment tasks that relate to a variety of school subjects and life skills.

The first step in saving energy is knowing how much you use and only then can you begin to understand and analyse your usage and where savings are possible.

The ultimate goal of the Energy Monitoring Programme is to understand the level of energy consumption in schools, how it is being consumed and to identify the opportunities for saving money.

The Susliving Energy Programme is a long term project and it is expected to take a few months for the results of savings strategies to become apparent. We are really excited by the response we’ve had from these schools as they get started into this majorly important life skill area.
