Putting Renewable Energy On The Curriculum: How Coventry City Council Created Solar-Powered Schools
Theatre : Energy & Carbon Management Strategy Public Sector
Coventry City Council embraced solar as part of an ambitious plan to generate 15% of its energy use from renewable sources. Learn how it overcame financial and non-financial challenges to install solar systems on six schools, as part of a larger project to transform 41 municipal buildings.
This Q&A presentation will guide you through the key stages of the schools project – from how solar was chosen as a potential solution and the specifying and tendering process, to installation, operation and monitoring.
It will also include an overview of the real-world cost and environmental benefits the project has realised for the City Council and the people of Coventry.
