#### Discover how all types of organisations in both the public and private sector have saved money every year by becoming energy efficient.

If you’re a school, business or organisation that’s looking to reduce your energy bills and become more efficient, then the [UK Energy Watch](https://ukenergywatch.co.uk/) could help.

They have a host of [case studies on their website](https://ukenergywatch.co.uk/led-lighting-case-studies/) that explain how much savings

One example is [Banks Road Primary School](https://ukenergywatch.co.uk/case-studies/banks-road-primary-school/), in Liverpool, which reduced its lighting bill by half through installing LEDs.

Doreen Finnegan, Business Manager at the school, said:
> “We knew we could reduce our electricity bill by changing the lighting but we never dreamed that we’d be £4,000 per year better off.”

She invited UK Energy Watch to survey the school to assess how much the school was spending on their energy bills and how much could be saved.

#### How San Francisco created a collection of food scraps and garden waste across the city to advance their zero-waste goals.

Since 1996, San Francisco’s local government has been running a food scraps and garden waste collection scheme across the city.

Experts in sustainable food and community resilience, Yerina Mugica and Andrea Spacht Collins, have analysed the results of the initiative in the case study [Food to the Rescue: San Francisco Composting.](https://www.nrdc.org/resources/san-francisco-composting)

Published by the [Natural Resources Defense Council (NDRC)](https://www.nrdc.org/work), the researchers explore the challenges that the project had to overcome and the key factors to its success - from using financial incentives to planning extensive education and outreach.
