Analyse your school's electricity use

Freshford Church School, Friday, 28 May 2021
10 Investigating energy usage KS2, KS3, KS4

What you did

We reviewed our school's energy charts and discussed how we can reduce consumption more. We're going to talk to the head teacher about lights being left on in the printer room, and store room. We are also going to discuss how we can get the energy saving message to our youngest class. 

Activity description

Using data specific to your school, pupils can analyse: 

  • When in the day the electricity is being used
  • How your electricity use varies throughout the year
  • Your carbon emissions and how this compares to regional, national and exemplar schools

 ... and much more in a variety of formats including
  • pie chart
  • line graph
  • bar chart
