Green School wins 2017 Zayed Future Energy PrizeGreen School - January 17, 2017
What an honor to see Green School Bali chosen as one of five schools to be a recipient of the 2017 Zayed Future Energy Prize.
The school will use the prize for the installation of a 10kW solar PV system and a battery-bank from used mobile phone and notebook batteries with a capacity of 32 kWh. The school’s project aims to lower their carbon emissions by 22 tonnes per year, with an added benefit of lowering the school’s utilities costs. The long- term engagement plan will also include close input from students, who will work on different aspects of the system including power production, storage and distribution, battery technologies, and project management.
About the prize
The Zayed Future Energy Prize came to fruition as a result of the vision of the late Ruler of Abu Dhabi and Founding Father of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The world is in desperate need of innovative solutions to create a new, sustainable energy future. No one knows who or where the next great energy solution will come from. Solutions and technologies that could change the world are being developed globally, and the $4 million Zayed Future Energy Prize, managed by Masdar in Abu Dhabi, is ready to recognise and reward these innovators of our time.
