Energy Literacy Framework Released

As part of an effort to improve energy education for individuals and communities, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently released Energy Literacy Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts, a downloadable, 20-page pdf intended to provide “a framework for energy education for learners of all ages.”

This framework seeks to improve Americans’ understanding of energy, energy sources, generation, use, and conservation strategies. This knowledge will allow for informed decision making on topics ranging from smart energy use at home to consumer choices to national energy policy.

The framework identifies 7 Essential Principles with each Essential Principle supported by six to eight Fundamental Concepts.  The Fundamental Concepts are “intended to be unpacked and applied as appropriate for the learning audience and setting.”
