Residential school embraces energy-smart decisions

Skilts Residential Special School, based in Worcestershire, is a school dedicated to providing learning for primary school age boys (National Curriculum Years 1-6; ages 5-11 years old) with emotional, social and behavioural difficulties with associated learning difficulties.

The residential school works hard to provide the best learning experiences possible and ensure a warmth and supportive ethos, which the school has taken care to develop.

Skilts were contacted by IU Energy about their energy costs and potential areas in which they could make savings, which would free up funds to put back into the school.

Hugh Dennis, Energy Saving Consultant at IU Energy, worked previously as school governor and has many years’ experience taking the time to truly understand the core issues that schools face. Hugh and the team at IU Energy were able to source a more competitive deal for the school’s utilities and decreased their energy costs, as promised.

Skilts are dedicated to continually improving their existing practice through their development plan. By embracing energy-smart decisions, schools, businesses and organisations are able to better allocate their budget. Skilts School is a great example of the benefits in taking advantage of the expertise and advice of an energy consultancy.


“We were approached locally by IU Energy and are really happy with the service received. They reviewed our energy costs and delivered the savings, as promised, to the school.”
