Education on energy & the environment

50Hertz wants to make young people enthusiastic about science and technology.

GreenTecAwards

We consider it essential to expedite the development of new solutions for climate-friendly, secure and economical energy supply. As Gold Partner of the German environmental GreenTec media awards, 50Hertz promotes the use of sustainable environmental technologies and supports the creating of a platform for the exchange of ideas. In 2012, we acted as head sponsor for the award ceremony in the Energy category for the first time, aiming to bring the theme of the energy transition to a larger audience.

Interactive show: "Turning around energy together"

"Turning around energy together" is the title of the interactive road show developed by 50Hertz in conjunction with the UfU Independent Institute for Environmental Issues and which began its tour of schools in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in the spring of 2013. Pupils actively learn about the Energy Transition and what it entails. The initiative was publicly announced in December 2012 when the Northern Line was officially taken into operation by Chancellor Angela Merkel. In the years to come, the interactive exhibition will be expanded and visit schools in other Länder within our grid area.

Energiesparmeister

50Hertz is partner of the Energiesparmeister-Competition and godfather of “Schule am Waldblick”. The school from Mahlow has already been successful in the regional competition in Brandenburg. As local champion the pupils directly qualified themselves for the national contest.
The energy detectives from Mahlow were able to drastically reduce their energy consumption by adapting their behavior. This resulted in decreased stress on climate and in saving about 5.000 Euro energy costs.
