Energy improvements and funding for UK schools [webinar recording]

Oxfordshire’s buildings are old, inefficient, and constantly wasting energy. In fact, in the UK buildings are responsible for 29% of total carbon emissions – and that includes our school buildings.

Not only is this a disaster for the environment, it’s also leaving schools like yours with high energy bills that leave you cutting costs elsewhere, and buildings that are uncomfortable for staff, pupils, and visitors.

Our team of energy experts have visited many schools in Oxfordshire, and we find there are some typical areas in school buildings where energy is lost, and where there is potential to make improvements to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions, and improve comfort.

In this meeting we share our learnings on this and the funding opportunities that are currently available, as well as on working with local schools to install solar PV panels on their rooftop to generate their own clean energy.

Plus we hear from Lynn Knapp, Headteacher at Windmill Primary School in Headington, about their experience with making energy efficiency improvements and installing solar.

Catch up with the recording below – and if you want to have an initial call about the opportunities and funding routes for your school email us on hello@energysolutionsoxfordshire.org to get started.
