Our vision is a sustainable future in which the school community is at the heart of measurable action to tackle climate change. We equip children and young people with knowledge, skills, and tools to take measurable action in their school and wider community to reduce carbon emissions. We enable school leaders, staff and communities to better understand and reduce their school’s energy consumption and introduce wider measures to reduce their carbon footprint.
Schools participating with Energy Sparks can expect to achieve measurable energy savings of around 10% in their first year of engagement, resulting in annual cost savings of around £2400 and 8 tonnes of CO2 based on an average 2 form entry primary school. The most engaged schools to date have achieved savings of up to 30%. Alongside these energy and carbon savings participating students and school staff develop energy saving and carbon reduction life skills that they take home to their families and communities.
