Being part of the Energy and Sustainability Service, the Schools Carbon Reduction Service is able to provide a unique service for schools as they combine energy monitoring and management expertise with curriculum-focused activities for pupils and staff, provided by our very own super-hero, Power-down Pete.
Power-down Pete can come into your school and work with staff and children on energy, water, waste and sustainability activities; helping you enrich the curriculum and save money at the same time. The team have extensive experience in delivering high quality curriculum based inputs to all key stages.
Schools that use this service as part of the Energy Service’s “total service” use 8% less energy per pupil than schools who don’t take the whole package. They thereby reduce consumption, saving money and helping educate future generations about our responsibilities to the planet.
