Saving money and energy in schools

The London Borough of Waltham Forest aims to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2025 as part of a national target.

Schools will need to play a big part in reaching this target. Energy efficiency (i.e. how effectively we use electricity and gas) is very important since energy use in school buildings accounts for almost 60% of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in council owned buildings, which are driving climate change.
