The Diocese of Oxford has been giving churches access to the national Shrinking the Footprint Energy monitoring scheme since 2012. The energy monitoring aims to build a better understanding of our energy usage and total carbon footprint so we can support energy saving actions and meet our commitment to protecting God’s creation.
The scheme, which was piloted in the Diocese of Oxford in 2012, gives all CofE churches and schools in the diocese the opportunity to use, for free, energy monitoring software that will help track and reduce energy use.
Funding for the national ran out at the end of 2013. However, thanks to support from Low Carbon Oxford, churches in the Diocese of Oxford will still be able to use the software throughout 2014, when we hope national funding will be available to develop the scheme further nationally .
