energy for education - schools, colleges and universities

Interested in solar panels for schools? The Education sector saves significant amounts of money with IU Energy. In brief, this is the result of installing efficient and renewable technologies. For example, solar panels and LED lighting.

Salix funding

Another key point is our know-how in assisting with Salix funding applications. To clarify, Salix supplies interest-free Government funding to the public sector. In particular, this is for projects such as solar panels for educational establishments – schools, colleges, and universities.

Specifically the funding is to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills. IU Energy will help you with your Salix submission.

Ultimately, funding is expressly dependent on energy savings paying off the loan within an eight-year period. Overall, Salix funds over 100 different technologies, including – 

  • Biomass boilers
  • Combined Heat & Power
  • Gas Condensing Boilers
  • Heat recovery
  • LED lighting
  • Solar PV and solar thermal
  • Voltage management

Not only does IU Energy install the systems shown above, but we also supply energy brokerage. As an illustration, green energy is in demand as a first step towards becoming energy-efficient and ultimately achieving net zero Carbon status. Frequently, buying a green tariff usually precedes the fitting of any technology.

Education and the environment

By the same token, as well as the financial benefits, reduced energy use has other benefits. On the whole, being ‘green’ is increasingly important to the reputation of schools, colleges, and universities.

For the most part, this is because students, teachers, and parents are amongst the most aware of climate change. Solar panels for schools especially are certainly a highly visible way of demonstrating a commitment to change.

Student ‘Environment Clubs’

Generally speaking, becoming energy efficient and reducing energy use offers an excellent learning opportunity. Frequently well-attended, these clubs notably set a fine example for young people; especially when it’s their own place of study investing in their future.

Indeed, IU Energy often presents to these clubs, usually after we’ve installed renewable or energy efficient technology. To clarify, his is when curiosity is at a high.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

“The lighting is exactly what we had hoped for and IU Energy’s support with the Salix funding application was invaluable. We are very pleased with the savings achieved as the extra money will go towards improving the school and investing in further measures to increase sustainability.

We enjoyed working with IU Energy and found them helpful, professional, efficient and willing to go the extra mile. We would definitely recommend IU Energy to other organisations looking for guidance on finance options and how to make energy savings and reduce their carbon footprint.”
