The aim of the project "Efficient usage of solar energy for better future - SP-FUTURE" is to achieve sustainability in the cross-border region by reducing enviornmental pollution as in two schools in the cross-border region will be used renewable energy sources. Besides the construction of photovoltaic power plants in both schools - "Anton Popov" in Petrich and "Sando Masev" in Strumica, in the framework of the project are planned and executed the following activities: established a network of teachers in the cross-border region involved in enviornmental issues, conducted trainings, developed and carried out information campaigns to reduce carbon emissions, developed a handbook for teachers as supporting material for environmental education in secondary school; developed a website and calculator for use of solar energy. Achievements: • Two primary schools are vitalized according EU environmental standards for the energy efficiency- usage of Solar power plant;• Promotion of regional Community renewable projects;• Prepared draft Carbon cutter programme for Municipality od Strumica and Municipality of Petric;• Annual cost for electricity (used) in the primary schools are reduced up to 50%;• Ten teachers are trained peer-educators in the regions (South- east in MK and South-west in BG);• Network of teachers working on environmental topics is introduced;• One guide for preparation of the lessons plan is developed (for the primary school);• One study visit for the teachers is organized;• Regional Energy Education programme is established;• 200 students from primary and intermediary schools in two border regions has been coached on Renewable energy sources including biomass, hydropower, geothermal, wind and solar.The project has been successfully accomplished in July 2014.
