ERC and the Illinois Department of Energy and
Natural Resources cooperatively carried out the Weatherization Audit
Training Workshop for Teachers and Students (WATTS). The objective
of WATTS was to provide practical, intensive training for high school
teachers and their students in the techniques of large facility
energy audits. The participants were taught to recognize and correct
energy waste in school buildings, as well as make recommendations
for improving building efficiency. The program involved summer workshops
including on-site work in the preparation of an ICP application.
Upon successful completion of the program, teachers and students
assisted in the implementation of an energy audit of their school.
