Help teachers, staff and pupils play a part in achieving energy and carbon savings for your school with our interactive online tool.
The ground-breaking Empower for Schools™ application is an interactive online tool, designed to help your staff and pupils to cut carbon and save money on energy bills. The cost of one year's access to this tool is only £650.
The Carbon Trust's experience of working with over 3,000 schools over 10 years indicates that schools can save up to £21,500 per year in energy bills, equivalent to the cost of a newly qualified teacher. Over 250 schools that recently worked with the Carbon Trust have gone on to save an average of 14% on energy bills in the first 3 months alone, with future savings forecast to reach up to 25% per year.
The Empower for Schools tool is a key component of the Carbon Trust Schools support. It includes advice and recommendations on all carbon hotspots in a school, and the ability to collate and see pledges and responses from staff and students. It also includes step by step training guides for carrying out onsite upgrades to lighting, heating and other common equipment with electrical consumption.
The full version of the tool is available to participants of our Schools Support service. The full version is a much more extensive and interactive website with:
