About Access to Energy - "I found the Carbon Descent training very effective – the way it was structured worked really well. At first it was difficult as I knew nothing about energy efficiency, so I started by training my family until I got my confidence. But after a year I have achieved a lot, it’s becoming second nature and I now feel I know what I’m talking about."  

Maryam Ben Rhaba, Telferscot School

About the Ecostiler Solar Schools project - "It has been very exciting working with Carbon Descent and having the solar panels fitted to Telferscot School, we have all been enthusiastically watching the energy display unit showing us the amount of energy saving with the solar thermal panels and the PV panels, especially during this hot summer! We are really proud to have solar panels on our school. We hope we are going to get our [Eco Schools] green flag status soon, we had fun at our summer fair playing with the solar panel toys!"

"I just wanted to write and thank you for your help on the Lambeth Carbon Reduction Partnership. The audits and the final reports were spot on and have given businesses a real road map to follow if they want to reduce their energy consumption over the next year. I would have no hesitation in recommending Carbon Descent to others".

Andy Deacon, Energy Saving Trust 

“VantagePoint is a fantastic product. It allows local authorities operating in an increasingly complex world to gain a clear view of how they can best meet their community wide carbon targets.”  

Noel Collings, City of York Council

“VantagePoint enabled us to quickly analyse a range of carbon reduction targets and present members with a series of costed scenarios for how we would meet them. This should be the starting point for any council wanting to address area wide carbon emissions. The training and support provided by Carbon Descent were second to none”. 

Tom Coates, West Sussex Council

“VantagePoint and the team at Carbon Descent have enabled us to understand what national policy should deliver in West Sussex in terms of installed capacities and carbon reductions. As a result we now have a much clearer sense of how we can best utilise our own resources to address our low carbon ambitions.”  

Bob Fiddik, Sustainability Manager London Borough of Southwark (now LB Croydon)

"Carbon Descent’s methodology is really comprehensive and identified for us the most economically viable set of actions which will meet our ambitious carbon targets. This work is central to our boroughwide climate change strategy which was agreed by members in 2006."


"The audits and the final reports from Carbon Descent were spot on and have given businesses a real road map to follow if they want to reduce their energy consumption over the next year."
