What is EMEX?

EMEX is the energy management show that connects all energy users with leading experts, policy makers, suppliers and technical solutions. This marketplace includes a free to attend conference programme that will help you control energy costs, gain industry insights, source innovations, share knowledge and stay up to date with the latest and upcoming legislative changes and how these are affecting businesses in the UK.

 

 

In 2013 Townsend Consultancy Ltd was commissioned by the Energy Managers Association to design an innovative pilot course on energy management for pupils at Highgate School in North London.  This presentation outlines the approach taken to help pupils to gain an insight into the importance of energy management and understand the role of an Energy Manager in the work place. The course was designed with a wide range of experiential opportunities and concrete examples of energy management in real work situations.

Schools Resource Showcases Peatland of National Parks

 

"The UK’s National Parks have launched a new curriculum-based schools resource about peatlands based on some of the latest research being conducted across the National Park network. The resource gives pupils a unique insight into the hidden beauty and value of these environments to UK society, how they have been damaged, and what we can do to restore and protect them. 

 

The resource has been developed in collaboration with renowned learning and teaching consultant Jenny Townsend, University researchers, the Cairngorms and Peak District National Parks, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and RSPB. It is designed for three A and AS level Geography curricula and Higher/Advance Higher Geography, with links to biology curricula. The resource can be used on its own in the classroom, or in combination with a visit to one of the UK’s many peatland National Parks".
