Energy & water monitoring

Multiple graphs showing energy usage

The majority of Leicester schools are able to monitor their energy and water through data analysis software that turns raw data energy consumption into meaningful management information through the DynamatLite and Edi-Net tools. Why not participate in the free Ashden Less CO2 programme to help your school reduce energy and educate the future leaders?

Energy management in Schools BESS offer 2019

Energy and water is one of the biggest spends for schools after staffing. Leicester City Council has worked closely to develop an offer at part of the BESS schools to develop tools and reports to empower staff and students to take control of their energy. This free interactive & practical workshop will provide you with all the information which will be offered in the BESS energy schools offer from April 2019.

Energy Data Innovation Network (EDI-Net) is a suite of tools to help users of public building take control of their energy and water consumption. Smiley face EDI-Net data analytics indicate consumption baselines against your own buildings. An online forum also provides colleagues with the opportunity to share ideas. Finally the bench-marking tool is used to help understand energy saving schemes. 

Ashden Less CO2 programme

We are encouraging all Leicester Schools to participate in the Ashden Less CO2 programme. The year long programme of support revolves around four half-day workshops covering various aspects of energy saving. Take a look at the flyer and get in touch - as this will be your last opportunity to join this academic year!

The LESS CO2 programme is a free programme supporting schools across the UK to reduce their energy use, engage with their staff and students about energy, and teach about sustainability. LESS CO2 is run by Ashden, a charity that champions and supports leaders in sustainable energy to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon world.

Staff from schools taking part in the programme attend 4 half-day workshops spread across a year, each covering a different aspect of energy saving at your school. Colleague from all backgrounds attend including business managers, headteachers, classroom teachers & support staff. Sessions are supported by energy and environment colleagues at Leicester City Council. You will receive free tools to access your energy consumption and resources to use in school.

Over the last 3 year we have supported nearly 40 Leicester city schools on the programme. We are currently recruiting for our next cluster. If you would like to sign up please complete an expression of interest at
