Schools learn to slash energy use by 25%


Schools are normally the ones dishing out the lessons – but three secondary schools in Portugal’s capital city (pictured) have been taught how to cut their energy use by a quarter.

The saving was part of a pilot project to control and monitor energy use at the Lisbon schools which are made up of ten buildings and serve 3,600 students and staff.

They had energy use from all new IT equipment monitored centrally, from air conditioning and lighting to ICT devices, according to energy management software firm Verdiem which was involved in setting up the project.
