EcoBCoT is a strategic initiative that started in September 2012 and has made a huge impact in its first twelve months. It aims to establish Basingstoke College of Technology (BCoT) as a leader in the practice, promotion and training of sustainability, to embed sustainability into curriculum delivery and to make BCoT a sustainable organisation.
The project provides a sustainability framework that encompasses education, information and practical improvement. The project raises the profile of sustainability in the community and it provides the opportunity for everyone to participate and bring forward ideas.
In 2013 BCoT invested £160k in a massive, 400 panel solar pv installation on its existing roof spaces. The system is generating 15% of the college's annual electricity requirement and a financial return in excess of 13% pa. This system is the cornerstone of EcoBCoT and it demonstrates the college's commitment and determination to become sustainable.
