Action on Carbon and Energy in Schools (ACES)

Download our easy-to-use Energy Efficiency Checklist for Schools

Our ACES Energy Efficiency Checklist is a helpful tool for schools. Find out how much energy your school is using, and spot areas where you can reduce costs, and cut carbon emissions.

In a world increasingly focused on tackling climate change and reducing carbon emissions, it is important for every sector to contribute to a sustainable future. Schools are key players in making our community’s infrastructure more energy-efficient.

Recognising this, Action on Carbon and Energy in Schools (ACES) is proud to announce the release of its Energy Efficiency Checklist for Schools (PDF). This checklist aims to assist educational institutions in assessing and improving their energy consumption, ultimately reducing their carbon footprint.

Why energy efficiency matters

Energy efficiency is a critical aspect of environmental sustainability. By optimising energy usage, schools can significantly decrease their greenhouse gas emissions, conserve valuable resources, and save on operational costs.

The energy efficiency checklist

The checklist is intended to be used as a general overview of actions to be taken. We have more specific guides and resources here on our website.

Incorporating energy efficiency practices within schools is an important step towards building a sustainable future. Our easy-to-use checklist provides a valuable resource for educational institutions seeking to reduce their carbon footprint, conserve energy, and inspire environmental responsibility among students. By adopting the checklist’s recommendations and fostering a culture of sustainability, schools can become exemplary models for a greener society.
