Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

The U.S. Department of Energy developed this "Energy Savers Guide" that focuses on energy efficiency and renewable energy. There are lots of subjects to warm a Science Teacher's heart: Save energy via home improvements, heat & cool, buy clean electricity, make your own clean electricity, and buy energy-smart vehicles. Be sure to have your students click on "How a wind turbine works" for an upbeat explanation of wind power. They can also click on a U.S. map for state-specific information.
