The Green Schools Alliance, which covers more than 3,000 schools in the US, has announced a deal with energy-monitoring specialist Noveda Technologies under which various energy and water management tools will be introduced in member schools.

Set up in 2007, the GSA (New York City, NY, USA) is a partnership of schools that aims to solve various climate and conservation challenges by exchanging resources and ideas and creating peer-to-peer forums.

The organization says that all its member schools will gain access to cutting-edge energy and water monitoring systems – as well as other advanced analytics tools – provided by Noveda (Branchburg, NJ, USA).

“We are excited to offer our member schools, world-class, patented solutions from Noveda Technologies that will have a big impact on reducing the carbon footprint in schools while lowering operating costs and educating the students simultaneously,” said Margaret Watson, the GSA’s president. “Having intelligence on their consumption patterns will enable schools to better manage their costs while educating the students on the virtues of energy efficiency.”

GSA member schools will have a range of tools they can choose from thanks to the tie-up with Noveda, including advanced analytics systems and building controls.

The company’s monitoring service also integrates consumption and generation data from buildings and provides relevant intelligence to building operators and users.

“We are very excited to partner with the GSA and empower schools worldwide to lower consumption costs using analytics and data visualization,” said Govi Rao, the president and chief executive of Noveda. “Schools can be the launching pad for the cultural transformation we need to shift our energy and water use paradigm.”

The GSA says it will provide further details about the specific Noveda solutions it is using from September.
