Virtual Schoolbag (VSB)
Carbon Trust, Ashden and The Pod are excellent sources of inspiration and information to help you with improving the energy efficiency of your school.
The Carbon Trust are hosting a free webinar for schools interested in energy and cost savings. This webinar, presented by an expert from the Technology and Delivery team at the Carbon Trust, will explain to schools what can be done at low or no cost to implement energy management and efficiency improvements, as well as covering information on other services through the Green Business Fund and how to apply to the Green Business Fund Capital Contribution. We would recommend watching this free webinar on Tuesday 17th July from 11:00 to 12:00. Click here for more information and to register.
We have spaces available on the next Ashden LESS CO2 programme. Through a series of free half day workshops spread through the school year, peer mentoring, expert advice and resources, staff are empowered and equipped to make changes and improvements to their school to reduce their energy usage, save money on bills and lower their CO2 emissions. This course has been very popular and schools that have attended have found it very useful. Click here for more information and to register your interest.
