Mitsubishi Electric's Award-winning Renewable Education Programme

A renewable solutions provider, the UK Branch of Mitsubishi Electric Europe B.V. has since 2011 offered an educational program in the UK called "The Learning Curve" to teach local schoolchildren and community groups about renewable energy technologies and the importance of energy conservation. The program includes facility tours and group activities, and over 1,000 children have already taken part in it.

The Learning Curve received a National Heat Pump Award for Training Excellence in 2012, and in June 2015 a Welwyn Garden City primary school became the first winner of the Mitsubishi Electric Eco School Competition.

The national competition was open to all schools as well as Scouts, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs, and any other youth groups who are committed to raising environmental awareness in their communities. The Eco-Team and Year 5 from Rowans Primary School successfully addressed the seven challenges set for pupils to secure the top prize of £2,000 worth of environmental resources for their school.
