Field Trip to Wicklow Community College for Sustainable Technology Students
Students of the Advanced Certificate in Conservation and Sustainable Technology put theory into practice when they took part in a renewable energy field trip to Wicklow Community College on the 16th October 2013. This college opened in 2012 and has incorporated various renewable energy technologies.
Renewable energy field trips are vital so that students can gain an understanding of how to assess a site’s energy potential and an appreciation of how to choose suitable and feasible renewable energy systems to reduce the energy load. It was also invaluable for them to see commissioned systems installed.
