Renewable Energy in Schools

What is Renewable Energy?

Renewable Energy is energy produced through natural resources such as wood (biomass), water (solar thermal), sunlight (solar PV) and wind. It’s energy that isn’t depleted once used and is a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels such as gas and oil.


It now pays to go Green!

To encourage the uptake of renewable energy and for the UK to meet it’s EU carbon emission targets, the government has introduced the RHI Scheme, a cash incentive for businesses and home owners to use renewable energy. This is proven to save on energy bills, provide cash returns and reduce your carbon footprint.

Schools and Educating Pupils

Renewable energy is the present and future. Our objective is to assist schools in obtaining renewable energy to replace expensive fossil fuel heating systems and at the same time to educate pupils on renewable energy.

We are committed to promoting the use of renewable energy by educating from the grass roots up and ensuring Schools lead by example.
