Energy Management Team is tasked with measuring and monitoring energy consumption across the County Council's building portfolio, including all school buildings*. Using this information we work to improve energy efficiency and minimise energy costs. We also manage the County Council's participation in the Government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme.
*Some academy schools may have direct contact with us anyway for the purpose of sharing consumption information only.
For more information on our services, please view our brochure.
General advice on energy efficiency for your school including; energy surveys, cost effective energy efficient technologies, low cost activities to reduce consumption, school energy policy and strategy, renewable energy and sources of funding for energy projects. We can also help with more detailed aspects of project management and identifying suitable suppliers.
