Sparking Action on Energy

Action on Carbon and Energy in Schools (ACES) is an energy efficiency support service to help schools in Oxfordshire carry out energy saving measures to:

Cut carbon emissions

save money on energy bills

and make buildings more comfortable and healthier for staff and students.

We work closely with schools to develop practical solutions that are right for them.

By working with the ACES team, your school can lead the way in carbon reduction and energy bill savings. We’ll help you develop a clear plan of action for your school.

If you work at a school in Oxfordshire and are keen to start your carbon cutting journey, use our Help Desk and we’ll get back to you.
