Werner Heisenberg Schule Ruesselsheim

Werner Heisenberg School is a vocational school, located in Rüsselsheim, Germany with approximately 2,900 students and a teaching staff of around 150. It offers training in metal technology, trade and logistics, security and fire services, and other subjects, as well as German language courses for refugees.

This project aims to expand the vocational school’s existing electric vehicle charging station. The current charging station is fed by wind and solar generation totaling about 15,000kWh annually and includes a student-installed double-pivot PV tracking system. The applicant estimates that, with its clean energy and charging installed facilities to date, it has avoided the use of about 100,000kWh of grid power and the emission of about 60,000kg of CO2. Surplus self-generated power is now delivered to the local grid.

The school would use the Prize money to add energy storage and more than 16,000kWh to its renewable generation capacity, making possible the charging of e-bicycles and a fleet of e-vehicles. The expanded charging system would be augmented by the sun-tracking PV mount and a measuring pavilion. The addition of storage would enable the school to use a greater portion of its self-generation for targeted e-mobility initiatives.
