[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Progress Energy Florida and the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) are partnering with public schools to educate students about the possibilities of hydrogen as an alternative energy source. The student curriculum initiative envisions the use of a variety of energy alternatives — such as hydrogen — while teaching the importance of energy conservation. Progress Energy will donate $49,000 to the FSEC to sponsor “Hydrogen: The Power and the Potential.” The program will initially involve eight schools. Teachers will review curricula and create a plan for integrating hydrogen concepts into existing teachings, covering safety, storage, infrastructure, transportation, production and marketing. All materials will be aligned with the Sunshine State Standards and include activities which prepare students for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Testing (FCAT).
