School Comparison Tool

This tool allows you to compare the energy performance of a number of schools within a Local Authority group or across the whole of Energy Sparks. The aim is to allow you to identify the best and worst performing schools to provide examples of best practice and to identify the schools needing the most support to improve their energy management.

Number of days heating was on last year

This is HTML content

Schools often forget to turn their heating off in warm weather, about 10% of schools leave their heating on all summer.

The chart and table below show how many days the heating was left on in the last year and the potential benefit of switching the heating off in warmer weather. Schools should target reducing the length of the heating season to below 90 days.

You can set up Energy Sparks email or text alerts which will notify you if the weather forecast for the coming week suggests you should turn off your heating.
