Huawei Supports Green School Bali with Leading Solar Energy Inverter

AUGUST 25, 2021

Jakarta. Huawei has donated its award-winning solar solution to Green School Bali, the ‘Greenest School on Earth,’ and is helping the school  to close the gaps in becoming a carbon neutrality campus and environmentally- friendly community.  

Green School students helped to set up and install the solar inverter and solar panels  at Green School, learning about renewable energy in the process. It’s an example of  how the school teaches subjects through hands-on projects applied to real-world  circumstances, what they call R.E.A.L. Learning.  

Solar power is anticipated to become the No. 1 source of electricity by 2050. As the  major player in the industry, Huawei’s contribution to Green School Bali will benefit hundreds of young learners aged 3–18, their parents, teachers and the entire  community.  

“At Huawei, environmental protection is one of the four key strategies that drives our sustainable development, which echoes Green School Bali’s vision. As part of our on going effort to support local communities to be progressively dependent on renewable solar energy, we are pleased to support Green School Bali’s carbon positive initiative by offering our smart solar solution”, Bruce Li, Managing Director of the  Huawei Asia-Pacific (APAC) Enterprise Digital Power Business, said. 

As the global energy demand keeps rising, the Asia-Pacific region is one of the most  potential markets for solar energy, Indonesia is looking into harnessing this green  energy to meet its booming energy consumption, curb urban pollution and positively  contribute to climate change.  

The Green School, opened in Bali, Indonesia, in 2008, is committed to educating for a sustainable world and nurturing future green leaders.  

It’s been a goal from the very beginning to have Green School run on, or as close to 100 percent renewable energy as possible. The solar inverter donation has helped us close  in on that goal, reducing our CO₂ emissions by about 3.5 tons per month. We are very  grateful for all our partners and generous sponsors to make this possible. The  contribution from Huawei will surely inspire our children in their journey of living sustainably,” explained John Hardy, the founder of Green School Bali. 

Currently, the school’s solar PV system is composed of 118 solar PV panels to  generate DC electricity from sunshine, a core inverter to convert DC to 220~ AC for  daily usage, and a 72 kWh capacity lead acid battery bank as a backup after sunset.  

Anthony Vovers, Renewable Energy Advisor for Green School Bali also shared, “The inverter, which was kindly donated from Huawei, is really light-weight and  compact. The installation process was a breeze and all the connections were easy to  establish to the network. Moreover, the simple LED light indicates the operating status of the inverter at a glance.” 

With the addition of Huawei’s latest inverter SUN2000 which offers a maximum of 98.6 percent  energy efficiency rate and lower cost of maintenance, the Green School Bali pushes new heights for sustainable and innovative organizations around the world.  

“As an organization, we are inspired and impressed by the progress which Green  School Bali has achieved for the past years as a pioneer in establishing a sustainable institution.” Bruce Li from Huawei added, “At Huawei, we strive to use clean and  renewable energy to build green campuses that boast low carbon emissions. Our PV  plants at Huawei’s campuses have a combined capacity of 19.35 MW, and generated  over 12 million kWh of electricity in 2020. This is equivalent to a reduction in CO₂ emissions of more than 5985 tons”, he added.  

Huawei’s industry leading digital power serves one third of the world’s population  across more than 170 countries and regions. As one of the great examples, Green School Bali will yield a brighter and sustainable future, and light the way for future generations of environmentally responsible innovators.
