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. Fort Atkinson School District's portfolio consists of 6 buildings and 700 thousand square feet. Since 2009, Fort Atkinson School District has improved energy performance by 7%. Energy savings have been achieved by implementing lighting retrofits across all facilities, HVAC upgrades at four of the six facilities, and an energy awareness program, including student lead green teams at each school, focused on low-cost opportunities for savings.

Energy Performance by Facility

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Fort Atkinson School District has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at half of its facilities. There is one facility that have experienced an increase in Source EUI. This facilities has been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.

Identifying Opportunities for Improvement

Facility-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Fort Atkinson School District's portfolio consists of facilities with baseline EUIs ranging from 50 to 150 kBtu/sq. ft. Almost all facilities have shown energy improvement since 2009. The facilities located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
