Energy generation, transmission, and distribution, requires a costly infrastructure to meet increasing demand. The success of energy efficiency measures (EEM's) are largely based on cumulative energy and cost savings. This research attempts to add improved student learning to the list of benefits when implementing EEM's in instructional school facilities. Our literature review of current research demonstrates that maximizing natural daylight in the design of school buildings reduces energy… CONTINUE READING
