Going forward we will be working closely with the team at Schools Plus to find ways to make schools more energy efficient and help them negotiate the best contracts to suit their needs. Any savings the schools make through the Indigo Swan and Schools Plus scheme will be reinvested back into the schools.
Aimee Konieczny, Energy Contract Enthusiast Coach at Indigo Swan said: “Each school will benefit from our tailored and individual support and advice. There isn’t a generic “one size fits all” approach to electricity and gas procurement, and we recognise that each school will have different needs and demands. I’m really looking forward to working with Schools Plus and the individual schools in order to help navigate the complex and often confusing energy market.”
One aim is to offer academic institutions lots of tools and knowhow to help them make better decisions about their energy. We understand how energy efficiency can be a concern for schools and many overspend on their energy bills simply because they don’t understand the market or the contracts they are in. By gaining an understanding of what they are currently using and what they use it on, could result in a saving being made. Our trusted partnership means together we can give back to the education sector.
“When the opportunity came along to form a partnership with Schools Plus, we jumped at the chance. The shared values, the same vision and the want to help and engage with the education sector was clear to see for both companies. By offering the schools and colleges that Schools Plus work with the opportunity to negotiate better energy contracts and to work with Schools Plus and the Schools on how the savings can be spent is an extremely rewarding initiative and one that I hope grows year on year. We want to find a better way for schools to purchase and manage their energy and give something back at the same time.” James added.
