The DLSU representatives who go by the name Team Green Zone topped the competition which was held at Ascott Hotel in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig with their Radiative-Heat-Recovering (RHR) Glass showcase. 

Go Green in the City is a (an annual) global business case challenge rousing students to develop groundbreaking ideas and turn them into useful technology.

This year, Team Green Zone, a pair of students from DLSU's research project on an energy-absorbing glass showcase which efficiently recycles heat energy is among the best entries.

RHR Glass showcase is four-item design that altogether acts as an energy-absorbing insulation system, thereby reducing the total heat gain of a building while supplying energy for its own cooling system. 

This groundbreaking integration of transparent solar tube collectors and vacuum-insulated glasses gives the RHR glass three main competitive advantages over existing cooling and building technologies - it is versatile, extractive, and sustainable.

Team Go Green, who will be mentored Schneider Electric Philippines, is set to compete at the regional finals in July. 

The team composed of Aaron Jules Del Rosario and Iliana Bernice Tan bagged P100,000 cash prize that would help to further develop their research as they prepare to represent the Philippines in the regional competition next month.

Del Rosario and Tan will present their a cooling system project entitled “The Radiative-Heat-Recovering (RHR) Glass.” on July 11 in (insert mo venue here)

According to Schneider Electric this competition aims to involve the younger generation to act on the current global energy situation.

It also allows students to contribute to the search for solutions to the global energy challenge while allowing them to learn from industry leaders and experts.

The shortlisted projects were judged by Schneider Electric Philippines Country President Claude Mazallon, Schneider Electric CFO for the Philippines and Taiwan Junmin Shen, and Technical Assistant to the Office of the President, Department of Energy Special Assistant to the Secretary and Philippine National Oil Company Technical Consultant Arwin Ardon.

The entries were scored based on the idea and innovation they present, feasibility of the project, and even the students’ profiles and their potential to be part of Schneider Electric.

Go Green in the City is my favorite Schneider Electric event because it forecasts a message of hope for the future. Claude Mazallon, Country Head, Schneider Electric Philippines said in a press release.

Schneider Electric spearheaded Go Green in the City in 2010 to engage the youth to help develop and make sustainable energy a norm.

Since its 2010 Filipinos have garnered awards in the competition in 2013 and in 2015.
