page image of the energy team van and trailerenergy bus

The Energy Team has a brand new van and custom built trailer specifically designed for shows and events to promote energy saving. As a shared service between Broadland and South Norfolk Councils, the team will be seen around the county promoting energy efficiency and specific schemes to help save money.

In December 2012 the Energy Team successfully secured external funding to replace their old energy bus. Working with local companies, they have had the trailer kitted out with demonstration energy saving products such as insulation, solar photovoltaics, taps and glazing.

The demonstration equipment supplements a selection of information leaflets relating to energy efficiency and micro-generation. There are also activities for children and school groups along with attractive giveaways.
