Renewable Energy Education Set

Item # 759250

Are you ready to teach green energy technologies and help students develop their environmental awareness? Contents and activities are designed to demonstrate the workings of a complete clean energy technology system on a miniature scale. Run 40+ hours of classroom activities as part of your science, engineering, design, or technology courses. Contains enough hardware, software, and curriculum for 4 to 5 students to share. Includes instructions.



In stock and available to ship.

With the contents of the Renewable Energy Education Set, construct an entire miniature renewable energy system for experimentation and demonstration. The set includes a working miniature wind turbine kit, a solar photovoltaic panel, an electrolyzer, a Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell, and a hydrogen storage system. A PC and distilled water are needed but not included. The set encourages students to learn the system step by step, configure it in different ways, and visualize the workings of clean energy principles from start to finish. This is an intermediate-level kit and contains 56 pieces. Note: Only use distilled water with this item or damage may result.

Hydrogen experiments:

  1. Electrolysis mode generating hydrogen and oxygen from water
  2. Fuel cell mode generating electricity from hydrogen and oxygen
  3. Determining the minimum voltage for water decomposition
  4. Polarization states for hydrogen fuel cells

Solar energy experiments:

  1. Effect of heat on solar panels
  2. Effect of shade on solar panels
  3. Effect of tilt angle on solar panels
  4. Finding the solar panel’s maximum power point

Wind energy experiments:

  1. How many blades are best—1, 2, 3 . . . or more?
  2. Using 3 different curved blade shapes
  3. Using blades you make yourself
  4. Turbine efficiencies
  5. Measuring RPM
  6. Turning for maximum power
  7. How blade angle or pitch affects output power
  8. How to generate hydrogen
