Punahou Taps Lumen for International Student Energy Exercise

Each year Punahou hosts the Student Global Leadership Initiative, bringing students from around the world to Hawaii for a two-week-long meeting on a topic of global interest – this year it’s Energy. The 48 participating students from from 15 schools in China, Japan, Singapore, Jordan and the U.S. will attend lectures and fieldtrips and meet with political and community leaders from the energy sector. The aim of the Initiative is to build leadership skills by engaging the students to conceive a realistic, yearlong project that will better their own countries’ energy shortfalls.

Lumen Solar’s Managing Partner Melissa White will join other community leaders including Jeff Mikulina of Blue Planet Foundation, Perry White of Planning Solutions, and Scott Glenn of the Sierra Club in assisting the students with conceptualizing energy solutions within unique geographical, environmental, and political contexts.

Members of the public are invited to mingle with SGLI students at a special screening of Carbon Nation, a 2010 documentary about climate change, to be shown at Wo Center on Punahou Campus at 6:00 pm on Thursday, July 27.

Lumen x AIA at Punahou Sustainability Fair

Lumen Solar joined the local AIA Committee on the Environment in creating an interactive booth at Punahou School’s annual Sustainability Fair. The booths are meant to engage the students with sustainability in fun, mind-expanding ways, and we accomplished that through a recycled building material matching game (to match the latest composite building products with their recycled feedstock), a musical instrument made with salvaged materials, and hands-on solar displays. Visitors were fascinated by the shiny cerulean Apricus evacuated tubes and intrigued by our Atlantis Sunslate building-integrated PV roof shingle. Ideas are already blossoming for next year’s fair! Here’s some pics, courtesy of AIA members Mark Ayers of Ferraro Choi & Associates and Brad Smith of Innovative Habitat Design.
