A team from Huonville High School, facilitated by Taroona Resident Nel Smit, was announced as the winner of the Oceania Schools division in the Zayed Future Energy Prize in Abu Dhabi on Monday (January 16).
Funding from the Zayed Future Energy Prize will be used to raise the renewable energy capacity of the school to 60 per cent, up from its current levels of 2.5 per cent.
The school also plans to develop the Zayed Energy Hub, which will function as a laboratory, run on 100 per cent renewable energy to showcase how solar, battery storage, insulation models, pellet heating, LED lighting, and data management can be run on renewable energy.
