British Gas has announced the launch of the Generation Green Energy Performance 2014, a new initiative that will see young people up and down the country compete on a specially commissioned dance floor to win an Energy Makeover worth up to £150,000 for their school.
Last year, pupils at Saltash.net Community School won a Generation Green Energy Makeover for their school. The school’s Business Manager Jo Lumbard commented; “Staff and students at Saltash.net Community School were delighted to receive the Generation Green ‘Energy Makeover’. Not only will the Makeover help the school to reduce its energy bills, it has also provided a platform to enhance awareness amongst the school community to the importance and the need for energy efficiency and sustainability. At all stages of the project we found the staff from British Gas to be friendly and informative. Those that were present at the school had a high regard for Health and Safety regulations and implemented these procedures extremely well within the school environment.”
To launch the campaign, British Gas also unveiled Diversity dance stars Jordan and Perri as judges for the Generation Green Energy Performance. To mark the announcement, Jordan & Perri have created a series of new films talking about their involvement and offering tips to help young people perfect their energy dance moves.
To be in with a chance of competing at the national Generation Green Energy Performance and winning an Energy Makeover for their school, teachers and children are invited to design their own eco-house using sustainable energy solutions such as Pavegen’s energy generating tiles, as well as energy saving tools. Free learning resources and further details of the competition are available at generationgreen.co.uk
Ambassadors Perri & Jordan from Diversity said; “We’re really excited to be part of the Generation Green Energy Performance. Energy can seem like quite a hard subject, but using new technology like a dance floor that turns your dance moves into electricity makes it easier to understand and much more exciting to learn about.”
Richard Brook, Manager of British Gas Generation Green, said,“Generation Green aims to spark the energy conversations that will help shape the future of energy. Through the Energy Performance campaign we hope to educate young people about energy in a fun and inspiring way.”
