We help academies and schools achieve their carbon ZERO targets.
Panacea’s energy experts work with you to develop and implement a structured approach to planning each step of your sustainable energy programme, helping you achieve your long-term carbon reduction goals.
Energy management has a vital role in reducing carbon emissions.
By gaining visibility into your academy or school’s energy usage through insightful technology and Building Management Systems, you can use these insights to put in place actionable improvements to address your school’s goal to achieve net zero and carbon reduction, in line with your sustainability plans for improved energy efficiency and resilience.
Many schools are currently operating in ageing and inefficient energy estates, this leads to unnecessary wastage and costs. Through energy insight technology you can see clearly where you can make significant cost and consumption savings, significantly reducing your carbon footprint.
Hear from our CEO on how Panacea is helping Schools work towards becoming NET Zero
Ageing school buildings, and the consequent compliance regulations to provide safe and comfortable surrounding for our children’s educational fulfilment are one of many requirements for the school’s executives and management teams to consider.
Net zero: Future or Fantasy?
Net zero. A simple concept but the difficulty lies within delivery.
‘Net zero’ refers to achieving an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions removed from the atmosphere. Like a bath with the taps on, an approach to achieving this balance can either be to turn down the taps (the emissions) or to drain an equal amount down the plug (removals of emissions from the atmosphere, including storage for the emissions such as ‘carbon sinks’).
Panacea is an approved supplier for a UK Government regulated EPC Framework
If you’re looking for a Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Framework for your school, The Panacea Group are a quality-checked supplier of energy services for public sector bodies wishing to implement energy efficiency and local energy generation measures to their buildings or estate.
The Panacea Group’s fully funded programme has been invaluable in driving our academies energy efficiency and improving our operational performance, with the installation of state of the art technology and equipment we shall see the benefits of costs savings and energy efficiency for years to come. More than lowering our costs and improving facility performance, it has provided us a step towards our plan to go net zero, and reflects our vision to build a resilient and sustainable future for our community, pupils and the academies trust.
What are my funding options?
In recent months there has been a variety of announcements that seek to encourage schools to meet Zero Carbon targets by 2030, as a consequence, this will require further investment from the tight budgets already being stretched.
Panacea fully endorse and encourage the zero-carbon objective whilst recognising the potential conflicts of maintenance and aspirational expenditure. To this aim Panacea have developed a fully funded initiative that will support and accelerate the carbon programme whilst providing greater flexibility within the existing internal budgets to enable further works regarding infrastructure improvements.
