Sunlight generation in the schoolyard and geothermal generation are typical examples. However, from someday, sunlight generation is not doing its function enough. Many schools are trying to utilize renewable energy. But, in most of the cases, unlike preliminary plans, schools are not substantially utilizing renewable energy efficiently. In order to maximize the energy efficiency of school's renewable energy, multiple renewable energy needs to be comprehensively combined and applied. The current method of solar energy is used in the rooftops of schools. Geothermal energy is installed using the large area of the schoolyard. Acupressure energy device using piezoelectric element is installed in the school gate, the 1st floor stairway, and the school building's main entrance. Also, in the school's streetlamps, noiseless, small wind energy generator is installed to generate wind energy. In conclusion, efficiently applying solar energy, geothermal energy, acupressure energy, wind energy will increase the school's renewable energy effect.
