Bellevue Place Education Trust

Save energy, reduce consumption, generate your own? We all know what this means, but how do we achieve it, especially when energy prices are eating into already tight budgets? 

Our framework helps schools and trusts do just that.

We save schools money and help meet decarbonisation needs through our supply chain of energy and carbon reduction companies. 

Bellevue Place Education Trust

For Bellevue Place Education Trust, the first step was to replace all lighting with LED and install energy monitors across its nine schools. 
Immediately we could evidence a reduction in energy consumption and carbon emissions of 26%. The trust is now installing Solar PV panels across the estate, entering their new green energy contract in September.
