By 2020, the Government would like all schools to be models of energy efficiency, renewable energy use and water management. They should take the lead in their communities by showcasing wind, solar and bio-fuel energy, low-energy equipment, freshwater conservation, use of rainwater and other measures. The scheme is being overseen by Ofsted, so it’s important that you’re taking the right steps to show your commitment to the environment.

One of the easiest ways for you to become more sustainable is by looking at the source of your energy and consumption, switching to green energy tariffs. This means your energy has come from renewable sources, showing the first steps of caring for the environment.

At A Greener Solution we pride ourselves on helping you become leaders within your communities by reducing energy waste and looking at sustainable energy procurement.

Staying Compliant

Display Energy Certificates (DECs)

Display Energy Certificates (DECs) were introduced to raise public awareness of energy use. They are a legal requirement for all publicly funded buildings over 250m2. Once a DEC is issued it must be displayed, in a prominent place which is clearly visible to the public. The advisory report contains recommendations for improving the energy performance of the building.

Staying Compliant

Air Conditioning Inspections (TM44)

Air Conditioning Inspections are a legal requirement and fall under the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations. They are often referred to as TM44 inspections. The aim is to reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency for buildings which use Air Conditioning systems, as they can very often consume a large amount of energy.

Managed Energy Procurement

With the new funding formula for schools and cuts to further education, schools have to be ever more creative in managing their budgets. Our Managed Energy Procurement package offers a flexible, transparent and great value solution!
We arrange energy supply contracts for schools and colleges of all sizes. We use our knowledge of the market to find the best tariff for your establishment’s usage profile, be that a small primary school, a multi academy trust or college of Further Education.
