Learn about clean energy technologies. We will mostly focus on solar energy as the most practical energy source in many places. Learn about solar heating and photovoltaics. Everything you need to know to start planning the clean energy installation at your school. You will be encouraged to specialize in other forms of clean energy if more appropriate for your locality.
Investigate the following three questions:
- Which clean energy technologies are currently being used in your country?
- Which companies sell clean energy equipment in your city/country and/or install it?
- Which organizations and institutions in your city/country promote clean energies?
You will be asked to present your findings for question number 1 in the next webinar in 90 seconds.
If your connection does not allow you to speak in the webinar, you have to record a video beforehand and share with the course coordinators so instead of you speaking live, we can watch your video recording.
Agents from the same country are kindly asked to complete this part of the assignment together.
- Prepare a 1 min Self-Presentation video to show during the 2nd Module, and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Do a little research about the Clean Energy that are most developed or used in your country, you will need this for the 2nd module.
Find out about previous work/campaigns on clean energy in your country, legal framework, other organizations working on the topic, companies, prices, information about the energy being used in your school, how it is being administered and who can take decisions to change.
Download our spreadsheet, fill it with your local information (you need to catch up with the research if you haven���t found out some of the necessary details) and calculate the estimated cost and amortization time for your installation. Identify at least three options for financing it
which you will investigate/pursue in the following weeks.
In this very interactive module we will share experiences of involving teachers and parents and coach you through the process, from advice on basic communication skills to more elaborate mechanisms and activities to get these important stakeholders deeply involved in the project.
Solar panels on your school are not the end, but the beginning of the story of energy transition. And that story wants to be told. Here we help you through the simple steps of finding, contacting and working together with journalists, to spread the news about your successes and inspire many more to follow in your footsteps.
Governments can drive or hinder the energy transition, depending on what policies they adapt. Here we will learn about best practices for promoting the energy transition and you will research what the state of affairs in your country is and how to ramp it up.
We will keep in touch to follow up on your efforts and continue supporting where support is needed over the rest of the year to implement the different missions in May, June, September and November. Some of you will come to the conferences mentioned in the prizes section, some will continue to start clean energy businesses and some will go on to start national campaigns to make clean energy the norm.
