What does the data tell you?

  • When are the peaks in electricity use? Do they mostly occur at the same time each day? Why do you think these occur? Think about food being prepared in the school kitchens, dishwashers running, kettles running in the staff room, photocopiers running, hot water heating switching on, electric heating...
  • Can you think of ways to reduce the peaks in electricity use?
  • Do you see a reduction in electricity when some classes are out of school on a trip or outdoor learning?
  • Can you work out what electricity is used for overnight, at the weekends and the school holidays? Can you write a list of all the equipment which might be left on outside of school hours, and then investigate whether they can be switched off?
