SummaryThe local government of Veenendaal wanted to realize the most energy-saving school building of the Netherlands with the construction of the Rembrandt College. The building has 430 square meter of solar panels. The panels come in two colors: blue and gray. A part of the panels is installed on the sun screens above the classrooms. The other panels are assembled to the glass face of the building. The solar panels are grid-connected by 22 inverters. Next to the solar panels, solar collectors are used to warm the tap water and heat pumps are used for general heating. The project has to be known by students and in the direct vicinity. The curriculum for students who take physics is adjusted in such a way that they often study the solar pv system.
