Current Module!!
Module #2
Clean Energy technology (June 4 – 10)
Meeting Saturday June 4th 2PM (UTC)

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.

Module Assignments

Assignment

Investigate the following three questions:

  1. Which clean energy technologies are currently being used in your country?
  2. Which companies sell clean energy equipment in your city/country and/or install it?
  3. 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.
