Improving the educational environment
Ineco Energy specialise in helping education providers, including sixth form and further education colleges, to save money and reduce their carbon emissions through the adoption of eco energy measures such as LED lighting for classrooms or roof-mounted solar PV panels.
Colleges face seemingly endless budgetary pressures with the need to attract the best teaching staff, deliver the strongest teaching material and use the latest technologies. Large college sites with specialist facilities attract high running costs so maximising the energy efficiency of your buildings can help to relieve that pressure via lower energy spend.
While financial savings are often the driver for change, the environmental benefits that come with the adoption of energy saving and renewable energy technology can be significant.
Low energy sustainable buildings help to preserve a healthier working and learning environment for students and staff; they also help to enhance the reputational image of your institute or college.

Low-energy educational lighting can reduce your electricity bills by 80%.
Older college buildings are often fitted with fluorescent lighting which attracts high maintenance costs in replacement bulbs and maintenance safety issues due to working at height.
These old school lighting systems can be updated with modern, low-energy LED lighting, offering consistent, brighter and more natural light, proven to improve learning outcomes.
All our lighting systems are designed bespoke, so we can design a system that works perfectly for your specialist learning spaces.Talk to us

For colleges, battery storage such as the Tesla Powerwall, can minimise energy wastage by storing unused energy until hours of darkness or excess demand.Talk to us
Ineco Energy can provide electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities for your college. You could charge your college’s electric minibus via EV charging or offer staff the facility to charge their personal cars.Talk to us
The ability to store energy on site and use that power when required is an increasingly important capability for colleges.
For those sites that operate long working hours, battery storage such as the Tesla Powerwall provides the ideal solution to the issue of wasted energy, storing energy for hours of darkness or excess demand.Talk to us
