Behaviour Change Programme
The aim of the Using Less Stuff behaviour change programme is to change the culture in the whole organisation from “Using Lots” to “Using Less”. It will save you money and generate lots of positive PR.
We will help the whole community to understand the concept of “social responsibility” and reduce the use of resources and therefore the cost of running and managing the organisation as a whole. So that, rather than the lone voices of 4 or 5 people nagging everyone about the environment, there is a collective responsibility of maybe 1000 people all doing a little bit to Use Less Stuff.
We can help to change the mind-set of everyone from the boardroom to the post room, stop the “not my job guv” attitude and help everyone to realise that they do have the time.

School Energy Survey
10% OFF FOR ALL MEMBERS
We want to help your school to Use Less Stuff. It is good for the planet, a good message to teach your students and ultimately saves the school money. A complete energy survey will look at the whole school and establish where you are now, what the low cost, quick fixes are and what are the longer term projects for reducing energy use.
10% Reduction for Subscribers
We believe that it is important to take an holistic approach to energy efficiency and avoid signing up to any new technology without first assessing the current situation and individual challenges within the school, the cost effectiveness of all the viable options and the most pragmatic funding route.
Boiler Management Survey
FREE TO PREMIUM MEMBERS
Heating bills soaring? Could you do with 12 – 20% savings? Think “Boiler Management Controls.” Advanced microprocessor-based boiler management and warm air controls that intelligently control central heating boilers / burners to dramatically reduce energy usage, cost and Co2 emissions.
These VTR (Variable Thermal Response) systems intelligently manage heating systems ensuring that the performance requirements are met economically and efficiently. The controls take into account all changeable factors including the level of demand, boiler flow and return temperatures and external temperature.
School Monitoring System
PREMIUM MEMBERS SAVE 10% ON INSTALLATION
This is a software system to use data from AMR smart meters to get a clear idea of the school’s energy use and present the data in a form that is accessible to everyone. Targets can be set and the whole school can get involved in changing behaviour and seeing those numbers reduce. Competitions can be set for example between boarding houses or departments to see who can reduce the most.The information can be used as a teaching tool to show energy used to boil a kettle or leave a computer on standby etc. etc.

Bill and Contract Validation
Energy bills, water bills and photocopying contracts are just 3 areas which are becoming more and more difficult to understand without specialist knowledge.
Do you know whether the rates you are paying are competitive? Do you know what all those additional charges mean and whether they are correct? Simply send us a recent bill or a copy of your photocopying contract and service agreement and we will check it free of charge and let you know whether we can save you money or whether you are already on the best tariff.
