We built student participation into all of our energy management plans, and identified potential energy savings of £14,880.
Horndean Technology College (HTC) is a large school in Horndean, Hampshire. The site consists of 11 buildings and is home to over 1,500 students.
It was very important to HTC that pupils were involved in any energy conservation measures. To that end, we built student participation into all of our plans, and even invited them to contribute design work. One of the ideas included giving the pupils responsibility for computer monitors after use, using a log-off screen backdrop designed by the pupils to help reinforce our energy saving message. The vast majority of the measures we adopted had a payback period of less than 36 months.
Horndean aims to get everyone involved in reducing their energy usage, especially the pupils. The facilities team are very committed to continue reducing the carbon footprint of the school, ensuring energy efficient replacement building services are installed as standard during any refurbishment work.
