Norwegian Montessori School, the greenest school in Norway, to produce more energy than it consumes
The greenest school in Norway, the Powerhouse Drøbak Montessori lower secondary school, will produce more energy than it consumes when it opens its doors next year. Delivered by Powerhouse, a coalition of sustainability-minded companies the Zero Emission Buildings Centre have likened to Tesla, the project is located in Drøbak, and designed with optimal solutions that allow for drastic cuts in energy use. Solar panels will help the school to generate 30,500 kWh of energy each year, with the body of the structure intersected by an angular, ‘solar plate’. According to Powerhouse, this plate uses the stack effect to draw in fresh air, and is oriented directly to the south with a 33-degree incline.

A network of 17 Montessori schools across the US is trying to find out. In this case, it's not about what students are doing on their devices. It's about where they go and what happens when they get there.

Running a materials-based school like Bluffview can be expensive and stressful on the people in charge. But Head of School Henry Schantzen said that, every now and then, the state of Minnesota will release new standards or guidelines that reflect the work Bluffview is already doing, giving the school and its mission further validation. “The whole charter school movement was built on innovation and teacher empowerment,” he said. “It’s our job to find what works and what doesn’t.”
