Helping your school save energy, money and cut emissions

When it comes to your school’s energy we know that budgets are tighter than ever, internal resources are stretched and the energy market is complicated and unpredictable.

What if that could all be made so much more simple?

Helping over 5,000 schools and academies across the UK save money and become more energy efficient, we are proud to assist schools with making energy manageable.

Through our compliant energy procurement frameworks, LED lighting and rooftop solar projects, we help you manage your energy usage and spend more effectively while working with you to reduce carbon emissions and create a more eco-friendly and sustainability focused environment for your school.

Plus, with our in-house energy management services, we can help your school stick to its energy budgets and avoid overpayment on utility bills.

Achieve a remarkable 70% reduction on your lighting usage by switching to energy efficient LED’s

LED lighting for your school

Through LASER’s DfE approved LED lighting framework and project management services, Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) upgraded the lighting across 15 schools.

The results:

  • over 1,000 tonnes of CO2 savings each year
  • £430k of energy bill savings each year

LED lighting not only reduces your carbon footprint and bills, it also helps transform the classroom into a brighter more engaging learning environment for children.

Compliant energy frameworks

Our energy frameworks provide Schools with a compliant route to secure the best value contracts for the supply of electricity, gas and water. You have the option to choose either a fixed term contract that provides budget certainty or a more flexible contract that tracks market movements to mitigate price increases.

Energy procurement

Fully understand your energy spend, usage and more...

We’ll help you pay less to power your school buildings. We do this by examining your energy bills and resolving inaccuracies, generating budget and forecast reports and analysing your energy consumption. You also have online access to your bills and energy data, allowing you to view your invoices, supplier query updates and track your consumption trends.
