Towards a greener future at Bangkok Patana School

Constant Energy is pleased to announcethe completion of a large solar rooftopwith 2,160 panels on the rooftops of three buildingsatBangkok Patana School, “producing anincredible 702kilowatts of power” relaying a statement from the school management.“The electricity produced will not only power the buildings on which they sit, but also provide electricity to other buildings nearby”, the school managementadded.

Bangkok Patana School originally installed solar panels onto the then new Science Centre in 2015 as an educational experiment. The most recent project started as an idea investigated by the Student Environmental Committee and was executed thanks to the strong green commitment of the school management. The school worked closely with Energreen Asia(EPC and O&M contractor)and Constant Energy(PM and Asset Manager)to design and install the solar rooftops considering challenging issues such as surrounding shadows. Project leasers and engineers modeled thesolarinstallation with students, imparting first hand understanding and knowledge. The installation uses solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, which make Bangkok Patana a pioneer in renewable energies inthe educational sector inThailand and South East Asia. Solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants are explained in an article written by Bangkok Patana senior student, Suyash Kothari.

Bangkok Patana is known for its lush, green campus, which includes an on-site Outdoor Classroom. Students and their teachers have driven the development of this classroom too, which will run on its own solar grid. Over time,Bangkok Patana hopes to expand the number of panels on campus furthering the school’s green credentials and commitment to the planet. The adoption of environmentally friendly technologies to power the campus reflects a commitment to “inspiring global sustainability”, which is one of the school’s core values imparted through its progressive British curriculum.
