Project Details

Description

The aim of the project is to strengthen the knowledge of the usage of electricity produced by sunlight in all levels of education in order to increase the share from this sustainable and CO2 free energy source and thereby contribute to reach the goals in the present Danish energy policy. The DTU part is focused on the teaching in universities.
One of the obstacles in t he implementation of PV in the general electricity supply is a lack of knowledge among technical advisors and in construction companies. There is therefore a need to qualify all parties involved in the construction field to secure implementation of PV in all new or renewed buildings whenever possible.
The immediate objective of the project in this preliminary phase is to locate existing PV related education material and programs of all kinds and in all educational levels in order to create a complete overview of relevant material. Based on the result of this screening suggestions to supplementary materials and programs will be formed and qualified by a presentation to groups of users in a number of workshops.
The project shall be followed by an implementation phase where the developed PV education material is tested under realistic conditions, eventually corrected and thereafter integrated in curriculum’s etc.
