A programme helped promote the concept of sustainable development and renewable energy among secondary school students in Hong Kong.

Organised by CLP Power, Young Power Programme (YPP) 2007 aimed to develop the participants' creativity, teamwork and leadership skills, and sense of social responsibility.

The scheme, now in its fourth year, attracted 50 students from 10 secondary schools.

They worked alongside 20 CLP engineers during a six-week, activity-based training course with the theme of renewable energy.

It ended earlier this month with a project competition.

Ten teams competed for the Young Power Championship by submitting their own renewable energy models.

Yuen Long Merchants Association Secondary School clinched the Young Power title, as well as the 'Best Booth in the Eyes of the Audience' award.

Sha Tin Methodist College and TWGHs Kwok Yat Wai College - who also won the 'Power Quiz Champion' award - came second.

Third place went to TWGHs Lui Yun Choy Memorial College.

Dr K. K. Chan, managing director, CLP Renewables, said: 'I hope YPP graduates can share what they've learned with peers to promote the concept of sustainable development and renewable energy.'
