Reducing energy use and carbon emissions in schools

ESCC’s first two school heat decarbonisation projects were completed in November 2022 and January 2023. These projects have involved greatly improving building insulation and replacing fossil fuel boilers with air source heat pumps. Six more school decarbonisations are in the pipeline.

During 2022, ESCC kicked off its energy saving workshops for school site managers, with successful pilot workshops on 15th November attended by school site managers and caretakers. More are planned in early 2023. The workshops cover practical advice on energy costs, climate change & carbon, energy efficiency measures and virtual site audits. A local school case study is used to show how changes that site managers can implement can result in emissions and cost savings.
