Energy Revealed Header

Students across Canada will gather baseline data on energy consumption at school, identify key actions to achieve the greatest energy savings, measure the impact of their actions using real data, and share their stories widely online and in local media. This program is the very epitome of excellent education. 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

  • Our experiential learning program leverages new technology that ‘makes energy visible.’
  • We provide students with a link to real-time data: dashboards showing a school’s use of electricity, natural gas, and water.
  • Our lesson plans help students understand how energy is used – and challenges them to come up with ideas and recommendations on how to increase the school’s energy efficiency, keeping funds in the classroom where they belong!

Program partners and scope

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. We’re rolling out this program in Alberta, and Alberta Council for Environmental Education (ACEE) will support teacher professional learning and supporting schools as we implement the program.

We’re also grateful for the support of Greenplanet Energy Analytics, who supports the preliminary development of this exciting program!
