    Potential Funding for Schools

    Just had this pointed out to me by one of the teachers here.

    Seems there is upto 20k available to help support community energy projects which schools can apply for.

    We are hoping to apply for an energy efficiency makeover by attempting to relpace all our CRT monitors with TFTs instead.

    Have looked through the criteria and we seem to tick most if not all the boxes so this maybe of use to others on here too.

    This is an interesting topic. We are working on "Green IT" projects as well.

    One of the criteria on the site is:
    "The use of new or innovative technology to deliver either energy savings or micro-generation capacity"

    Do you do something about virtualisation (Citrix or VMware) ?

    We have a couple of virtual servers here too. I suppose virtualisation would also count towards this grant as your running mulitple servers on one host.

    I suppose it all depends on how good you or the staff at your school who go through the application process are at putting a positive spin on things.

    We plan on supporting out application with hard facts (you can't argue with them) just something highlighting the difference in power consumption between a 5 year old CRT and a modern TFT.

    I wrote up a bid for this last year but missed the deadline... as I forgot about it. Will tweak it again and have loads of time for the May deadline this year to hopefully remember.

    Good luck everyone if you put a bid in.

    Thanks for this, looks good...

    Just been debating whether we should buy a Stirling Engine or something exciting like that.
