How do I enrol my school?

The service is currently open to schools in Bath & North East Somerset, Somerset and Sheffield Councils who are part of the council energy purchase scheme in each area. As the council already holds your energy usage data this makes it easier for the data to be made available to Energy Sparks.

We aim to make the service available to a wider selection of schools in future.

If you would like us to offer Energy Sparks to your school, Local Authority or Multi-Academy Trust then contact us to express your interest. Knowing that you're interested will help us prioritise our work.

What is the process to enrol my school?

The process is very straight-forward. The main thing we need from your school is permission to publish your energy usage data to Energy Sparks.

The setup process involves the following steps:

  1. The head teacher or school business manager must send an email to asking to be enrolled in the Energy Sparks programme.
  2. We will respond with a link to an online form for you to give us some details about your school and to provide permission for your energy use data to be published to Energy Sparks.
  3. We will setup an account for you on Energy Sparks.
  4. Your profile is made public and you can begin using the service.
  5. We will remind you annually that your data is being published to Energy Sparks, and remind you how to withdraw consent for your data to be published if you wish.
