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.
