Lots of beautiful things happening at Green School as we move into the 10th year. From 80 students in 2008 to 430 today.
The Energy Hub will house a visual representation of electricity and installation of a hybrid micro-hydro/ solar renewable energy solution at Green School, created by expanding on our existing micro-grid system.
On the electricity side, the building will generate and store its own power, house monitoring equipment and incorporate interactive pieces that allow students to better understand how energy can be transferred between different states.
In collaboration with Tsatsa House, the building will utilize sustainable Earth Bag building techniques founded by Nader Kalhili. It will incorporate 60sq meters of usable roof for solar panels, a rainwater catchment system, pelton wheel and potential capacity for renewable energy battery storage.
On the learning side, it will provide some enclosed areas that can be used for specific purposes eg. a Media LAB/ recording studio and a breakout space for students to meet and interact in a quieter environment.
