What is Wattwize? Audit the Electricity Use of Your School
Create a Conservation Plan
Implement a Conservation Plan
Measure Your Success First, a bit about electricity and Canada How much electricity
does Canada use? 7th largest consumer of electricity in the world! Which countries consume more? In terms of per capita use where we do rank? Who uses more? http://datafinder.worldbank.org/electric-power-consumption Has our electricity consumption per person been going up or down? ? ? ? ? http://graphs.gapminder.org/world/#$majorMode=chart$is;shi=t;ly=2003;lb=f;il=t;fs=11;al=0;stl=t;st=t;nsl=t;se=t$wst;tts=C$ts;sp=4.50709677419356;ti=2005$zpv;v=0$inc_x;mmid=XCOORDS;iid=ti;by=ind$inc_y;mmid=YCOORDS;iid=pyj6tScZqmEcKxvG4lnIreQ;by=ind$inc_s;uniValue=8.21;iid=phAwcNAVuyj0TAlJeCEzcGQ;by=ind$inc_c;uniValue=255;gid=CATID0;by=grp$map_x;scale=lin;dataMin=1960;dataMax=2005$map_y;scale=lin;dataMin=5.71;dataMax=28213$map_s;sma=50;smi=2$cd;bd=0$inds=i37_t001960,,,, But wait... ... is using electricity necessarily bad? What's "wrong" with using electricity? The Environmental Impact of electricity use depends upon its source - electricity generation 508,336,000,000 kilowatt-hours 104,208,880,000 kg GHGs 31,907,189 Honda Civics Driving for a Year Different sources have different environmental impacts Where does Canada's electricity come from? And in Ontario? Ontario Electricity Generation by Source www.ieso.org So what does this mean? Electricity use in each province has a specific environmental impact Not just GHGs - although these are important Emissions Factors Why Conserve in Schools? Total of 1,759,905 kWh 316,783 kg GHGs 26,399 Trees Needed to Absorb 43 Honda Civics Driving for a Year Audit the Electricity Use of Your School
Create a Conservation Plan
Implement a Conservation Plan
Measure Your Success That's why in Wattwize we: What do
these mean? If my laptop use uses 728 kWh a year: This will produce 131 kg of GHG if I live in Ontario This will produce 677 kg of GHG if I live in Alberta This will produce 4.3 kg of GHG if I live in Quebec kg GHG produced = KwH Electricity Used x Emissions Factor How To Do an Electricity Audit Next Steps: Divide school into areas for groups to audit
Run the audit
Compile results and determine possible conservation strategies

Implement the plan!
