The project “One m² of photovoltaic per student” is the first major project of the Greenfinity foundation. The foundation wants to promote environmental protection on a regional level and above all raise future generations’ awareness of this topic. Especially raising children’s awareness of environmental protection, alternative forms of energy and energy efficiency are major goals of the project. This will be supported by a display panel in the entrance areas of the schools informing students and teachers about the current production capacity of “their” photovoltaic system. Photovoltaic systems significantly contribute to reducing greenhouse gases because they cause low emissions and use the sunlight in order to produce energy. Alternative energies, such as solar energy, have to be used more frequently in order to cut emissions.
