CETA 2nd Energy Days focuses on schools

CETA made a campaign with the primary and secondary schools in Gorizia province for involving teachers and students in the participation in the event. In fact, email, calls, and appointments to discuss it with the teachers were carried out during October and November 2012. Different classrooms accepted to participate in 1 hour and half of guided visit, where a dedicated lesson was carried out together with showing materials and realizing some experiments with the students.

During the booked visits, the exhibition was closed to the public. In the rest of the time, the Energy Days exhibition was opened to all public: different public administrators from the municipality of Gorizia, from the Province of Gorizia and also other stakeholders visited the Energy Day and the technicians of CETA explained them the GovernEE project, the advantages of using RES and Energy Efficiency interventions in public and private sector, the environmental benefits, etc.

CETA, for the lessons to the students but also for the other participants prepared a didactic path divided in 3 sections:

A multimedia section was dedicated to different presentations and screeings : the use of RES for heating and electricity, the Energy Efficiency interventions, the new technologies and the best practices were reported in the presentations. The GovernEE project, the activities and some results were also presented with the support of specific roll-up created for the event.

A visual section, with the support of 3 rigid panels (blue, red and yellow) displayed key messages and  building materials. Besides 3 posters realized specifically one on RES/plants, one with EE strategies and interventions, one with the description of GovernEE project and CETA activity, the topics described in the multimedia section were rendered in a more clear way.

Two interactive tools raised much interest: A model in scale of a “sustainable building” and a plastic model. The sustainable house clearly showed the envelope interventions with insulating materials; the double glass for the windows (the windows are removable and the 2 glasses with the gas in the middle can be shown); the insulation of roof; the heat pumps that are shown with tubes that go down into the ground and the fluxes of warm or cold water or air are explained through the use of blue moving lights and red moving lights in a system that heat the house with the heaters  under the floor; the photovoltaic panels on the roof that if illuminated with a lamp or sun allow to switch on the light in two rooms in the pendant lamps; the thermal solar panels that have the tank that can be filled with water and warming up the panel with the lamp or sun, the water flows into the tubes in a bath and it can be touched; in the garden there is a wind power generator, that if air blows and it starts to move, is connected to the kitchen and a light bulb in the oven is turned on. Thanks to this sustainable house the students and the visitors touched with their hands the effectiveness of RES and EE interventions.

CETA realized also a plastic model where the concepts of smart grids, district heating from cogeneration, and the distribution of energy can be explained showing the generation of energy from industrial area and the distribution to the town, then from the town to other areas if there is surplus of heating or electricity that can be redistributed. Also this tool was very useful because the topics discussed were clearly understood.

The specific booked visits and the lessons were carried out for one classroom of the Technical and Industrial Institute of Gorizia (secondary school). Then two classrooms booked the visit from the Scientific Liceo (secondary school). A classroom not from Gorizia but from Udine participated from the Technical and Industrial Institute of Udine.

In the rest of the time during the two days public administrators, technicians and citizens participated to the event visiting the free exhibition.
