Green light for aleo power schools26.01.2009 | Press
aleo solar AG today announced the launch of its "aleo power schools" network as part of its sponsoring drive. The project is intended to bring the important topic of sustainable energy supply into selected partner schools in the next few years.
n the innovation challenge "Young ideas for the future," 22 students from Prenzlau's Christa-und-Peter-Scherpf-Gymnasium came up with answers to the following question: "What will Prenzlau and Brandenburg's energy supply look like in the future? And how do we fit into this scenario?" aleo solar AG is sponsoring the "future workshop," with Prenzlau's public utilities also supporting the innovation challenge.
The results were presented at a closing ceremony attended by politicians, businesses, parents and other students. The ideas developed by the children include a filling station system for electric cars running on solar power, a coil for generating energy by using photovoltaics and wind power, and a module that generates solar power and heat simultaneously. "It is impressive to see the imaginative solutions that the students have developed in the space of a single week," commented Dr. Heleman Krause, deputy mayor of Prenzlau. "This should encourage us in our efforts to promote forward-looking energy supply strategies."
In the opinion of Heiner Willers, COO of aleo solar AG, the innovation challenge was a promising start for the aleo power schools: "We give the schools in our network tangible support in the form of a real photovoltaics unit, complemented by materials for experimenting and teaching. We also want to network the participating secondary schools via their climate and environment working groups, bringing together schools in Lower Saxony and Brandenburg. Sustainable learning needs to be rich in materials, ideas and public commitment." Further schools plan to join the network during the coming year.
