Schools in Bath invited to join energy efficiency and saving scheme
Schools across Bath and North East Somerset have been invited to join a new energy efficiency programme created by two local community groups.
Called Energy Sparks, the platform is currently recruiting primary schools with pupils who would be enthusiastic to take part in monitoring their school’s energy usage and help the school be energy efficient.
Bath: Hacked, one of Bath’s Tech-focused community groups and Transition Bath, an active environmental group, joined forces in August 2016 to develop an interactive website and education programme to teach primary schools children about energy and at the same time help schools reduce their energy bills.
“We want to help schools become more energy efficient. This will save them money and benefit the environment. The website we’ve built does this by giving schools better access to their energy usage data, presenting it using simple easy to understand visualisations that the whole school can access and use.” explained Leigh Dodds of Bath: Hacked.
