ENERGY IN EDUCATION - Promoting Energy Efficiency in Schools

Sign up today for a free training course to find out how you could save money by better managing your school’s energy use. The Energy in Education programme offers a range of supports developed by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) in partnership with the Department of Education and Skills designed to help schools to improve energy management practices, reduce school operating costs and protect the environment.

Attend an energy management course More than 600 schools from all over Ireland have already taken part in Energy Management courses. Participants are guided step by step through the energy management process from understanding bills and energy use in the school to developing and implementing an energy saving plan.

The course involves attending two half-day workshops where schools are given access to a range of resources, online tools, expert advice and opportunities to network and share knowledge & experiences with other schools. The school can nominate any representative to attend e.g. member of staff or of the Board of Management. Schools that attend courses may (depending on energy spend) be eligible for an Advice, Mentoring and Assessment (AMA) service. As part of this service an energy advisor will assist the school in identifying energy saving opportunities (detailed in a report) and provide three months mentoring. Read case stories from a range of schools around Ireland here.
