EIA Releases New Energy Education Resource for Teachers and Students.
Submitted by U.S. Energy Information Administration
Energy Explained, a new Web site that was recently launched by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), celebrates energy awareness with the most comprehensive energy education resource available from the U.S. government.
While energy fuels life, the economy, and the entire solar system, few students understand the importance of energy and its role in our lives. Energy Explained clearly conveys the facts and latest data about energy. The site provides graphs, data, and scientific information that can add depth to high school curricula in science, math, or social studies.
It also includes an explanation of where gasoline comes from, what determines the price of electricity, how much renewable energy the United States uses, and hundreds of other energy topics.
“Energy touches us in many ways every day, from the electricity that lights our homes to the fuel we use in our cars,” said EIA Administrator Richard Newell. “Energy Explained uses plain language and clear graphics to help explain a sometimes complex, but vital subject.”
Energy Explained allows easy navigation between major energy topics:
*What Is Energy?
*Use of Energy
*Energy and the Environment
*Nonrenewable Energy Sources
*Renewable Energy Sources
*Secondary Energy Sources
