The environment

We have always been involved in environmental education.

Our substations host a number of educational organisations and hundreds of thousands of children have visited our environmental education centres.

Environmental centre

We have a network of environmental education centres (EECs) across the UK, all based on land we own next to substations. They are centres of excellence for environmental education and we developed them with local authorities and charities. They provide lifelong learning opportunities for the local communities. They are mainly aimed at providing outdoor education for school children from within the nearby areas. They offer imaginative activities designed to support teaching and learning across the curriculum, but with the emphasis on life sciences and environmental issues.
