Retro-commissioning alert: Northeast-CHPS Operations & Maintenance Guide - just published

Strategies for creating green, healthy & energy efficient existing buildings

The Northeast-CHPS Operations and Maintenance Guide is a companion piece to the Northeast-CHPS Protocol. The Protocol provides a set of guidelines for the construction and renovation of K-12 schools in a manner that provides for enhanced learning environments, energy efficiency, and low environmental impact. The Protocol is, in part, based on the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative‘s High Performance Schools Guidelines (MA-CHPS), which were in turn based on CHPS, Inc. Guidelines. Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) has tailored Northeast-CHPS to the climate zones and school construction needs of the states in the Northeast, primarily Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. New York maintains a state specific version of CHPS.

Above all, a high performance school provides an environment that enhances the primary mission of public schools: the education of future citizens. Northeast-CHPS provides guidelines for the construction of new schools, the renovation of existing schools, and the operations and maintenance of all schools.
