Energy Efficiency as a Service set to save The Activate Learning Education Trust more than 40% on energy consumption per year

Chippenham-based SMARTech energy has announced a new fully-funded Energy-Efficiency-as-a-Service (EEaaS) partnership with The Activate Learning Education Trust.

The partnership will see the Energy-Efficiency-as-a-Service programme rolled out at five University Technical Colleges and Schools operated by the Trust.

This follows the first successful delivery of the EEaaS programme at University Technical College (UTC) Swindon – where cutting edge upgrades to low-carbon technology such as lighting, motor optimisation and base load reduction has secured energy savings of 43%; equivalent to more than £200,000 in energy bills over a 10 year contract.

EEaaS – The fully funded energy reduction programme

EEaaS is a fully funded, shared savings energy reduction programme.  All energy efficiency measures are installed with no upfront costs, lease or risk to the organisation; enabling education settings to reduce energy consumption, costs and carbon emissions easily.

The ‘as a service’ option enables The Trust to easily integrate an energy and sustainability programme which delivers huge benefits – whilst demonstrating their strong commitment to innovation, sustainability and best practice towards environmental policy.

Energy Management Makes Good Business Sense

Managing Director of SMARTech energy Stuart Pearce said “Its about making energy efficiency simple.  With EEaaS, the energy technologies are seen as a service, rather than a purchase.  Instead of purchasing the energy saving technology, sites can implement projects without capital expenditure, lease or risk and it’s this approach to energy efficiency which is helping organisations to make clear, defined business decisions on energy management – essential for improved profitability and sustainability”.

Stuart continues “Energy management makes good business sense & with energy bills soaring, its a real wake up call for companies to look at how to reduce their energy consumption. We’re seeing an unprecedented increase in successful projects moving forward – especially through our Energy-Efficiency-as-a-Service model”.
