Energy Literacy Training

Energy is the key driver of social and economic growth. Access to reliable energy has enabled communities and countries to grow technologically and economically faster than others who lack such access. But, the current energy generation and supply systems are mainly centralised and heavily dependent on fossil fuels. This results in dependency on energy imports, the financial burden on governments, loss of energy in transmission and distribution. Moreover, currently, 80-85% of the world’s energy needs are being fulfilled with fossil energy, the main cause of global warming and climate change. Its impacts can be seen in the form of forest fires, floods, heatwaves, and cyclones with increasing intensity and frequency. Renewable energy technologies have evolved to become viable alternative options, but adaption is slow. In general, there is a lack of widespread awareness on energy supply issues, climate change issues, and the availability of alternative solutions. The Energy Literacy Training aims to educate the masses on an understanding of energy generation and consumption, and its impact on the environment in the context of self, state, and country. In wake of climate change, sustainable living, and sustainability of life. Energy Literacy training would enable individuals and institutions to make informed decisions on sources of energy to be used and appropriate amounts to be used.
