Advancing Clean Energy Schools (ACES) Program

RPS is supporting Queensland’s Department of Education to deliver sustainability upgrades at more than 800 schools across the state.

Challenge

Advancing Clean Energy Schools (ACES) is a $97 million investment to reduce energy costs across Queensland public schools through solar and energy efficiency measures over three years. Work has already begun with photovoltaic (solar) panel installations and a range of other power and money-saving measures underway at more than 20 schools.

A state-wide initiative, ACES is a complex program involving thousands of stakeholders, contractors and communities. Before work begins, each school undergoes a detailed facilities study to determine energy usage and define what energy conservation measures (e.g. solar, LED lighting etc) would be most effective in reducing overall consumption.

Solution

RPS has been supporting the Department of Education Queensland’s ACES Program since March 2019, engaged to provide program advisory and project management services for the initiative.

Drawing on decades of experience supporting the delivery of multi-million dollar physical and social infrastructure investment programs–from hospitals and schools to transport, utilities, defence and telecommunications–RPS has created significant efficiencies for ACES through program leadership, individual project management and our own proprietary program management software – myProjects.

Designed by RPS, myProjects has been customised to suit the unique scale, governance and reporting requirements of ACES, meaning program stakeholders at all levels have reliable information to guide decision-making and monitor progress metrics in real time.
