Energy Revealed Header

Currently in its second year of a pilot program in Alberta and Ontario, Energy Revealed aims to provide students with an understanding of the importance of energy efficiency to inspire them to take action to reduce energy use! 

As the main occupants of the building, Energy Revealed empowers students to play leadership roles in delivering energy efficiency and practical cost-saving emission-reduction measures. 

 It helps schools, the environment and empowers students to:

  • Become energy efficiency experts and future energy managers.
  • Develop their competencies, innovative mindsets, and workplace skills, preparing them for careers in a low carbon economy.
  • Drive down the use of electricity, gas, and water at school, at home, and in their communities.
  • Help reduce greenhouse gases, utility bills, and carbon levy payments.

How it works

This cross curricular, multi grade program is being designed for:
-Schools and school board with installed utility level metering technology such as Carma . This means all of the schools energy use as a whole is being monitored.

-Schools and school boards with circuit level metering such as CircuitMeter, Eguage and PowerScout  (defined areas of the school are being monitored at the circuit level).

-Schools that have wattmeters such as TrickleStar or Kill a Watt that plug into electrical outlets.

-Schools that have none of the above but are looking for a great program about energy efficiency.

Program partners and scope

In Alberta, this is a joint venture with Alberta Council for Environmental Education (ACEE), an organization which works collaboratively to advance environmental education in Alberta – because educating today’s youth to be tomorrow’s environmental stewards is the best strategy to create a sustainable future.  Alberta Council for Environmental Education (ACEE) will support teacher professional learning and supporting schools as we implement the program.

In Ontario we are pleased to be partnering with the Peel District School Board (PDSB). PDSB provides innovative and inspiring elementary and secondary education to over 155,000 students in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon and strives to be a leader in energy & sustainability initiatives within our communities.
