What Ofsted says:

“By 2020, the government would like all schools to be models of energy efficiency, renewable energy use and water management.

“They should take the lead in their communities by showcasing wind, solar and bio-fuel energy, low-energy equipment, freshwater conservation, use of rainwater and other measures”.
