Pounds 70m energy claim
Schools could wipe a massive Pounds 70m off their energy bills by being more energy efficient, according to the Carbon Trust. It says schools would reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by 600,000 by cutting energy waste if they use its new service, designed to help headteachers identify and implement the right energy-saving projects. The service is free and comprises an on-site school assessment by a carbon consultant, followed by a bespoke report and action plan. It is available to schools and colleges in England and Wales with energy bills over Pounds 50,000.
