The topics considered include energy generation, utilization, conversion, storage, transmission, conservation, management and sustainability. These topics typically involve various types of energy such as mechanical, thermal, nuclear, chemical, electromagnetic, magnetic and electric.

A successful energy management program in a single school or a school district requires an energy audit or survey. The audit identifies how much energy is being consumed, as well as where it is going. Furthermore, it shows opportunities for energy conservation. The walk-through energy conservation survey is the method that has the best prospect for applicatlon to a school system. Improving the energy efficiency of municipal facili-ties and operations is a cost-effective strategy to help stimulate the economy, create jobs, expand markets for energy-efficient technologies, and reduce emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases (GHGs) (U.S. EPA, f; U.S. EPA, b).
