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.

What do we offer?

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.

Find out how our LED lighting, Solar PV, battery storage, EV charging and energy monitoring can help your college at no cost.

LED for colleges

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.

Solar PV for colleges

Generating your own cleaner, cheaper electricity onsite via solar PV panels helps to protect your college from rising grid energy costs

Battery Storage for colleges

For colleges, battery storage such as the Tesla Powerwall, can minimise energy wastage by storing unused energy until hours of darkness or excess demand.

EV Charging for colleges

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.

Monitoring your energy

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.

Funding, Grants and Finance to help my college save money and help the planet.

All maintained schools, academies and Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) can access government-backed funding to implement renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies.

At no upfront or ongoing cost to your school, you can make financial and environmental savings from day one.

Government-backed Salix Finance provides interest-free loans to help create greener schools. Your school remains cash flow positive throughout as the loans are repayable using the predicted energy savings.

We can use our expertise to help you access this funding, or the other schemes below, by completing an application on your behalf, eliminating the administration for you.

Funding schemes for schools include:






Yes, we work with Salix Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme (SEELS), which delivers interest-free loans with no upfront cost, while the loans are repaid using energy savings. It is funded by the Department for Education, meaning all maintained schools and sixth form colleges are eligible to apply for funding to install energy efficiency measures, such as Solar PV panels and LED lighting, to enhance the learning environment and reduce energy usage. We are also able to manage the administration of the funding application to reduce the burden on your management and busy office team.
