The goal of our project was to analyze how the Nantucket Public Schools use energy and to make recommendations on how to reduce energy consumption. To address this goal, we performed a detailed technical and behavioral energy audit of the school buildings, which consisted of field data collection, analysis of past energy bills, distributing surveys, observing classrooms, and conducting interviews with teachers. Using the information gathered from the energy audits we offered the Nantucket Public Schools recommendations on how to reduce energy consumption. Additionally, we created a website containing energy facts and conservation tips to serve as an educational resource to the students and faculty of Nantucket Public Schools, as well as the community of Nantucket.
