From the evaluation of the programme the following lessons can be learned:  The project needs proper funding to achieve the required objectives of the programme  Hospitals and Schools can make significant cost savings if the recommended conservation measures are implemented (case study of Cornwall Regional Hospital)  Hospitals as well as the Schools should adopt a system of documentation so that future best practices can be disseminated  The Programme has the potential to move beyond Hospital and Schools to become an island-wide initiative to sensitise and educate the public on conservation measures.

Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 Of the four hospitals selected for installing Solar Water Heaters only one was completed and in use. The proper piping systems at the other three (3) were not in place through lack of funds.
2 The training and workshops on capacity building and sustainability should also be conducted for schools. This could perhaps include the establishment of an energy committee where students would be a part of this initiative as children are the best ambassadors of change..
