Net Zero Island Competition Winners

Dixons Trinity are the winners of the Net Zero Island competition.

Northern Gas Networks, SkillsHouse, University of Bradford, Bechtle and Bradford Council were partners in this exciting project that saw schools pitching their ideas on creating an island that is Net Zero. The students had all researched the subject and understood the key factors in achieving Net Zero for their islands with lots of fabulous, innovative ideas that made the competition really tight.

Teams of up to five students from schools in the District took part in a 'Dragon's Den' type presentation to a panel made up of representatives from the above organisations, and were also taken on a tour of the University engineering department and engaged in a Hydrogen Car workshop.

Dixons Trinity won the competition presenting ideas for a robust energy production system, a waste management plan, justified their transport strategy and had considered all types of home heating to ensure that their island achieved Net Zero.
