A groundbreaking system designed to help all types of schools to monitor and adapt their energy usage to make essential savings; whilst at the same time engaging and educating pupils and teachers on the benefits of energy and CO2 reductions.

Created by Cura Energy (market leaders in energy management systems), STEM can be integrated with or replace your current systems with ease, including monitoring any energy savings methods you may have already installed. Even if you are already monitoring your main utilities, STEM can still add extra value.

Using our unique dashboard system, you can see exactly where and how your energy is being used. STEM allows both teachers and pupils to see all aspects of energy use throughout the school, in real-time. Individual buildings and classrooms can be monitored.

With this information you can drill down into
the detail to reveal patterns of use, highlight
areas of waste and importantly identify
potential efficiencies.


The total annual energy consumption of the UK education sector is a staggering 11,378 million kWh of energy, equivalent to 25% of total public sector energy costs.

According to the Audit Commission the total potential for cost savings across the sector could easily be 20 per cent, which is equivalent to £80 million per year and those savings can be maintained year on year .
