What We Did

Downsend School

Downsend School, a part of the Cognita Group, was looking at ways to reduce energy consumption and ensure they had an environment that was as sustainable as possible.

The school was spending £6,748 per year on lighting costs, which could be significantly reduced with the installation of energy-efficient LED lighting.

Our team visited the school and carried out a comprehensive survey. Our survey highlighted that replacing all older lighting could improve the learning environment and make savings of £2,073 in the first year alone. The environmental benefits mean that carbon emissions will also be reduced by 6.4 TCO2 each year – the equivalent of 306 trees.
