Introducing the importance of the coming European “green” energy model in School Education focusing on three consecutive milestones
Hydrogen will be the fuel of the future
Education Sustainability Renewable Energies Climate Change
Ciro Project aims of promoting the training of teachers and awareness of students, between 14 and 17 years, in the development of knowledge, skills and capabilities on climate change, sustainability, renewable energies, energy storage systems (emphasizing on hydrogen technologies) and the final applications of these technologies.
The Ciro Project takes its name from one of the protagonists of Jules Verne's novel The Mysterious Island. Jules Verne foresaw in this novel that hydrogen will be the fuel of the future – at this moment, near future.
A1 GENERAL COORDINATION
A2 DATA RESEARCH
Introducing renewable energies and energy storage systems.
Analysis of the current educational model at European level. This analysis will compile information from Ministries of Education and national and regional laws on education.
Analyse end-users feedback. Elaboration of surveys / interviews with a significant group of teachers and students (between 14 and 17 years old). Each partner will be in charge of doing surveys/interviews.
hydrogen energy storage
We are currently facing environmental and energy problems such as climate change and the reduction of fossil fuel reserves. We must be prepared for the anticipated energy change with efficient use of renewable energies such as solar, wind, hydro, geothermal or tidal energy. This requires the use of energy storage systems that stabilize the intermittent energy sources (solar, wind) since in many cases the electricity production is not produced at the same time as the demand. In these terms, hydrogen is an energy carrier capable to promote a progressively decarbonization of the sector.
