Carbon Mixer for Schools
The software draws from the existing Carbon Mixer commercial tool developed by BG&A and used by architects, developers and planners. Carbon Mixer for schools creates a simulated workplace experience for students, who are invited to take on the role of 'Carbon Consultant' to a range of demanding clients. As students experiment with renewable and fossil-fuel energy sources to find the perfect balance between energy demand, output, payback and carbon emissions, their clients challenge their choices and provide ongoing feedback via a simulated chat engine. The project has been financially supported by the north east England regional development agency One North East (ONE). Information about the Carbon Mixer for Schools, and free downloads, is available on the Explore Renewables website www.explorerenewables.co.uk
