Electrician training courses could help green schools initiative

Those with approved electrical qualifications could find that their skills are particularly useful now that the school Energy Display Meter initiative has come into force.

Yesterday (January 28th), pupils at the Pimilico Academy in Westminster, London saw the first school Energy Display Meter installed as part of a £12 million scheme that hopes to make students more aware of how much energy they use.

The meters, which may need to be fitted by those who have taken electrician training courses, will give real-time information about how much energy is being used at any one time.

It is thought that the initiative will encourage pupils to become more energy-efficient by allowing them to see how simple actions - such as switching off a light that is not in use - effect electricity consumption and in turn, carbon emissions.

From yesterday, every school in the UK can apply for an Energy Display Meter - if this green initiative proves popular then workers who have undertaken electrical training courses could find that their services are in high-demand.

The scheme is part of a recommendation from the Zero Carbon Task Force, which was set up in 2008 to advise on carbon reduction methods in schools.
