LEC Scheme Stage 1 & 2 Energy Awareness at Work Accreditation

LEC Scheme Stage 1 & 2 Energy Awareness at Work Accreditation

It has been predicted that energy prices will rise sharply over the next five years due to security of supply, increasing global demand and a reduction in generation capacity. Now is the time for companies to act to reduce their carbon emissions and avoid facing an uncertain future relating to both supply and cost.

Tailored to the needs of all organisations, we have developed an interactive, online training course that will provide you with an overview of the current global energy issues and how your company and the people that work in your organisation can be more energy aware and help your business to be more energy efficient.

Our combined Stage One and Stage Two Low Energy Company training programme is easy to use and can be completed in around two hours. It provides an excellent long term value proposition for all enterprises – small, medium or large.
