Action on Carbon and Energy in Schools (ACES)

Schools energy efficiency checklist

Our ACES energy efficiency checklist serves as a comprehensive guide for schools to evaluate their energy consumption patterns and identify areas for improvement.

In a world increasingly focused on combating climate change and reducing carbon emissions, it is crucial for every sector to contribute to a sustainable future. Schools play a vital role in updating a community’s infrastructure to be 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. 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 newly released energy efficiency checklist is an ACES resource aimed at helping schools to take tangible steps towards sustainability.

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 a crucial step towards building a sustainable future. Our ACES energy efficiency 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.
