Edinburgh School wins top energy award

June 16, 2009

Currie High School in Edinburgh has won a nationwide top energy award and was the only entry from Scotland that was recognised at the Ashden Awards for Sustainable Energy 2009.

The awards were hosted by Prince Charles on 11th June. Currie High school won the Schools award category.

The school has been reducing their energy use over the past 10 years by installing a solar thermal system and a Gaia-Wind

11kW wind turbine. Pupils at the school are also learning about sustainable energy.

Other ways the school has been reducing their energy use have been to upgrade over 2000 lights to low energy use designs, all doors have been replaced to try and help prevent heat loss and they have also had all of the windows re-sealed. The Schools swimming pool is heated by solar thermal panels and the boiler is now switched off for several months of the year.
