Green Energy Grants for UK Schools During this past weekend The Guardian has reported that UK schools are now able to draw on a number of grant resources to help them become more eco-friendly and to save money and the environment by generating their own energy. You can read the full report here.

A number of schools up and down the country have already taken advantage of these schemes. Click here to see green energy in action in the UK’s schools.

Your child’s school could apply for renewable energy funding too. For more information on how the school can apply, see the following sites:

In addition, for schools that have already started producing their own energy, the Ashden Awards are offering a new reward in 2006 for Sustainable Energy in Schools with a first prize of £15,000, recognising that schools play an important role not only in the need for green energy, but in demonstrating its effectiveness to the community, and to the children who attend the school. The Ashden Awards are calling for UK entries.
