Energy Costs

Description

In this episode of Save Money, Bridgid Nzekwu and DfES procurement expert Claire Dicks visit Coopers School in Chiselhurst.

The school's energy bills have doubled in the last three years and business manager Sue Whyler isn't sure where to go to find the best deals on oil, gas and electricity.

The school has different buildings heated in different ways, some with old and inefficient oil-fired boilers. These boilers should be replaced but there is no money left from the school's capital grant thanks to other, more pressing repairs.

Claire organises a visit from Tom Cumberlege of the Carbon Trust who addresses the green agenda and suggests practical ways for a school to save energy. Can Claire come up with a plan which will help the school to conserve energy, and save money?
