Kent County Council action
Kent County Council is committed to environmental projects and
using renewal energy in its schools and buildings.
These projects include biomass boilers, ground
source heat pumps solar photovoltaic and solar thermal panels and
wind turbines. Most of the projects have been completed in Kent
schools, providing a good educational opportunity for pupils as
well as generating some free energy to help lower costs.
We currently have 354 eco
schools on Kent. These are made up of:
- 2 green flag ambassador schools
- 72 green flag schools
- 144 silver award schools
- 136 bronze award schools
Since October 2011, 13 more schools have achieved an award, with
an increase of 5 Green Flags and 8 silver awards.
In addition to our eco schools, we have invested in 34
renewable energy projects and 60 energy and water
efficiency projects in our own buildings and schools to improve
efficiency and reduce costs. Total investment now stands at £1.9m
with expected lifetime savings of £4.5m.
