School in India Shows the Way

Druk Lotus School Optimizes Solar Energy

There is a school in India called the Druk White Lotus School that is showing the world what can be accomplished with a little planning.

The school has solar cells that help to pump water for the school and provide electricity. It also has south-east facing walls that are extensively glazed to provide passive solar heating and also provides light for the classrooms. The roof of the northern most building was designed to help bring more sunlight in for lighting purposes and temperature control.

There is a courtyard where the children can study when the weather permits. It is shaded by trees for a more comfortable environment.
