Bettergy has carried out an energy audit of all the schools of the Ave María Foundation, which together with the technical support and help in implementing the different energy efficiency programs, is allowing the institution to improve its environmental commitment and reduce costs significantly.
The Ave María Foundation’s schools are a group of non-profit educational centers that teach from kindergarten to higher vocational training.
Data analysis and energy savings.
The energy audit began with a total of 1,066 MWh analyzed, where savings were found for a total value of 14,000 €, managed through our energy data management platform, and based on comparative studies of the sector and comparisons between centers, these savings are equivalent to 98 MWh, 9.2% of consumption in the centers.
Energy management: Integration and implementation of improvement measures.
The analysis identified 19 energy improvement actions in all the buildings audited.
Improvements are currently being implemented, such as changing lighting to LED technology, optimizing air conditioning equipment, improving energy purchasing or monitoring consumption by analyzing each center through our platform.
Reducing energy consumption not only translates into economic savings but also into a reduction of harmful carbon dioxide emissions into the environment, which contributes substantially to the conservation of the environment and to improving Mayoral’s social and corporate image.
Bettergy also performs a detailed analysis of possible grants, subsidies or any other type of public or private financial support that the project or the proposed measures may be eligible for.
These programs enable schools and educational institutions to improve the well-being, health and safety of classrooms and other school environments. By reducing energy bills, we also help educational institutions spend less money on energy. Those institutions can redirect that money to other budgetary needs that directly impact better learning for students, such as school supplies and teacher salaries.
We know that the Bettergy team’s challenge is a significant one, but we have the right tools and expertise to successfully achieve your school’s goal of sustainability, cost savings and corporate social responsibility.
