Free home energy e-learning

Support provided by Home Energy Scotland

What does this involve?

Businesses can help their employees learn how to save money and energy at home and tackle the climate emergency with Energy Saving Trust's free online training tool.

What’s in it for your employees?

Users take a virtual tour of a typical home to identify energy saving hotspots and discover how much money and energy they could save by making simple changes. They’ll get a personalised action plan to download and take away, with tips and details of funding and support to make energy saving home improvements.

Your employees can:

  • learn how to save hundreds of pounds a year on energy bills
  • stay warmer and comfortable at home
  • find out about funding and support from the Scottish Government
  • be part of a greener and healthier Scotland, by saving natural resources and reducing pollution
  • use the tool at a time and place that suits – perfect for people working from home

What’s in it for your organisation?

Over 5,500 employees of 37 organisations, councils and NHS boards are already using the e-learning tool.

By offering it to your employees, you can:

  • give your staff an innovative employee engagement benefit that costs you nothing
  • create a happier workforce and increase productivity
  • achieve corporate social responsibility and sustainability goals
  • help your business achieve accreditations and apply for awards, like VIBES – Scottish Environment Business Awards

Energy saving knowledge can transfer to the workplace, too – ultimately saving your business money.
