Our Client

Tudor Grange Academies is a leading trust of ten schools: five secondary, one all-through academy and four primary academies. The core vision of the Trust is to develop a Multi Academy Trust of six secondary schools, all within one hours traveling distance from Solihull, and groups of primary feeder schools around the secondaries which all exploit the benefits of a model for school to school partnership.

The Results

Beond ran a Zero Carbon Market online auction for Tudor Grange Academies Trust.

25 energy suppliers participated in the online auctions, offering a mix of zero carbon energy offers including renewable electricity using REGO offsets, nuclear energy and gas fossil fuel energy with carbon credit offsets.

After reviewing the range of zero carbon energy offers and their price differences, TGAT selected REGO green renewable electricity and brown energy for their gas due to the gas green premiums.

TGAT agreed a long term arrangement and have been very supportive of Beond and we really appreciate the collaborative relationship we have with the Trust. TGAT are focused on efficiency and improvements and we are continuing to work with Tudor to support this journey. We were recommended into 15 Trusts and MATs by TGAT and we hope to develop new working relationships within the education sector from these recommendations.
