Is your electricity clean?

Project Overview

The availability of energy and its impact on the global climate have become major themes of interest in the 21 st century. While students learn about the concept of energy in science classes, they rarely get an opportunity to relate to it directly and they find it difficult to connect the information they receive from the media to their personal case. This module bridges that gap by helping students calculate the amount of electrical energy they use in real life and measure the impact their energy consumption has on the global climate.
