The efficient use of resources & the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are issues identified in the guidelines on energy efficiency of buildings & in the European Climate Action Plans for 2020 & 2030. High school buildings are aging and often energy intensive, but building new buildings or renovations is expensive and time-consuming. Also, the ENERGE project proposes to experiment, in 12 pilot high schools in France, Germany, Luxembourg, Ireland, the Netherlands and R-U, alternative solutions, at low cost and sustainable. It sets a goal of reducing total energy consumption by at least 15% by the end of the project. To this end, concrete and targeted actions combine the installation in each school of an online platform & sensors (electrical, thermal ..) with behavioral studies & educational modules. This global, modular and multidisciplinary approach will combine sociological, pedagogical and communication expertise with inexpensive technology, digital tools & system engineering. The entire ecosystem of each pilot high school (students, teachers, management & maintenance staff) will become an energy efficiency player by using the online platform. In addition, educational content will be offered in addition to existing school programs (students aged 12 to 18) to enhance the long-term effects of the project. In parallel, ENERGE will study the impact of these initiatives beyond high schools, namely in 24 households (staff & students). Finally, an ENERGE committee representative of the ecosystem will be created in each establishment. These 12 committees will be the main entry points for the project. They will guarantee a long-term impact of the actions carried out as well as an effective and transnational involvement of each high school in achieving the project's energy objectives.
