Community energy literacy is a catalyst to energy transition.
“A lot of the energy literacy…tends to focus on how to conserve energy in your house, changing the LED lights, that kind of thing. And that kind of energy literacy is good of course, because you're reducing your energy consumption which is good. But it really doesn't help people understand how electric power systems work in the first place." [NWT Energy Intermediary]
CASES has developed a series of Fact Sheets, providing plan language introduction to renewable energy sources and technologies. Such material is foundational to building a common understanding about renewable energy options, and to ensure that communities are able to engage in conversations with the utility sector and energy investors.
