Energy Efficiency

We want pupils to understand how they can save energy. For example, leaving appliances on standby accounts for 8% of our bills, costing us £600 million each year! Switching off could save 1 ½ coal power stations of electricity and millions of tonnes of CO2.

Fuel Poverty Alleviation

Fuel poverty is caused by low household income, poorly insulated homes and the rising cost of fuel. Some families have to choose whether they need food or fuel more. Fuel poverty leads to cold, unhealthy homes. Each pupil receives an energy saving leaflet to take home to their families.

The Challenges Of Climate Change

We want pupils to understand that 97% of scientists agree it is the fossil fuels humans have burned over the last 200 years, releasing large amounts of Carbon Dioxide into our atmosphere that is causing our climate to change. Less energy wasted = Less CO2 = lower global temperature rise.

Energy Heroes! - Our vision is to enable school communities across the UK to become models of Energy Efficiency

Our Aims:

  • To improve data handling and problem solving skills for pupils in Year 5.
  • To encourage a responsible attitude and desire for low carbon living.Β 
  • To help communities across the UK understand the benefits of reducing CO2 emissions.
  • To empower energy users across the UK to reduce their fuel bills.Β 

Objectives:

  • Provide teachers with quality resources that enable pupils to achieve high standards for data handling and problem solving skills.
  • To deliver a highly engaging, reusable programme, that enables schools to act as knowledge hubs for Energy and Climate Change.
  • To provide schools and their communities with a range of activities and resources that empower them to make good choices in relation to energy conservation and low carbon living.Energy Heroes In Schools
  • To empower children to become messengers who describe and model behaviours that reduce CO2 emissions and reduce fuel poverty.
