Saving energy at school has never been more important. In fact, the UK Government would like all schools to become more sustainable by 2020. This is being monitored by OFSTED, so it’s important all schools are taking measures to show their commitment to the environment and remain ‘outstanding’ in their criteria.
UK schools could reduce energy costs by thousands of pounds per year which would prevent hundreds of tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
Improving energy efficiency in schools does not mean compromising the comfort of staff and students. In many cases, implementing some simple energy saving measures actually improves conditions, as well as providing an excellent opportunity for practical learning and real-life application for students.
