Diversity dance stars Jordan & Perri launch £350k schools competition for British Gas Generation Green

The dance floor will capture the energy created by students’ dance steps using innovative Pavegen technology, which harvests the wasted energy from footsteps to generate electricity.

To launch the campaign, British Gas also unveiled Diversity dance stars Jordan and Perri as judges for the Generation Green Energy Performance. To mark the announcement, Jordan & Perri have created a series of new films talking about their involvement and offering tips to help young people perfect their energy dance moves [films will be available from 24th April].

The Generation Green Energy Performance forms part of British Gas’ ongoing commitment to inspire curiosity in young people and help bring energy to life. Last year, British Gas invested over £1.6 million installing energy saving equipment for schools through Generation Green, helping to save an estimated 400 tons of CO2 and saving the winning schools an estimated £100,000 on energy bills per annum.

To be in with a chance of competing at the national Generation Green Energy Performance and winning an Energy Makeover for their school, teachers and children are invited to design their own eco-house using sustainable energy solutions such as Pavegen’s energy generating tiles, as well as energy saving tools. Free learning resources and further details of the competition are available at generationgreen.co.uk

Ambassadors Perri & Jordan from Diversity said: “We’re really excited to be part of the Generation Green Energy Performance. Energy can seem like quite a hard subject, but using new technology like a dance floor that turns your dance moves into electricity makes it easier to understand and much more exciting to learn about.”

Richard Brook, Manager of British Gas Generation Green, said: “Generation Green aims to spark the energy conversations that will help shape the future of energy. Through the Energy Performance campaign we hope to educate young people about energy in a fun and inspiring way.”

British Gas Generation Green provides free of charge learning resources and educational experiences, and invests millions of pounds in sustainable energy technologies for schools throughout the UK.
