The installation consist of 384 ATERSA A-400M GS photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of the school connected to 2 inverters that would supply the building with the generated energy or could take energy from the power grid in case of need or in case of having a excessed energy generation, would be possible to sell that energy. The solar panel would be put in 8 lines, 7 on the roof and 1 on the superior part of the facade, with 48 panels each. This installation would not have batteries because it would make the installation to be very expensive to install.

Our proposal consists of a closed cycle, where organic waste from the cafeteria, sewage and discharges from a farm, located in the immediate vicinity of it, will be collected. These wastes will be channeled and will be collected in an anaerobic digestion chamber that, through a biological process, will produce the necessary biogas to use it as fuel for the heating system. In addition, this process offers us a biofertilizer that is expected to be used in the school garden that supplies the cafeteria with its products, thus closing the cycle. Through this system we reduce the consumption of the heating system to 100% as well as its bills. In conclusion, we would obtain an economic saving and in our carbon footprint.

Photovoltaic solar panels will be installed on the roof of the building. The electrical energy produced by the solar panels will be consumed immediately in the building, it will not be stored in any way, in case there is a greater demand than that generated, it will be the electricity network who supplies the building, when there are surpluses of generation they will be sold to the network.
