For Teachers

The Energy Revealed program is the very epitome of excellent education! It helps schools, the environment and empowers Alberta 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 at school, at home, and in their communities.
  • Help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Energy Revealed will: 

Benefit Students: 

  • Deliver student action projects around energy efficiency, conservation and renewable energy. 
  • Increase energy efficiency and climate action through inquiry and project-based learning. 
  • Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills for careers in a low carbon economy towards a prosperous future.

Benefit your School: 

  • Position your school as active participants in the climate solution.
  • Provide support to the teachers that want to incorporate more energy, environment and climate education but lack the tools to do so.
  • Help teachers and students understand where energy comes from.
  • Create connections between community leaders and schools as students engage local business owners, trustees and other community members in their projects.

Benefit the Environment: 

  • Increase energy literacy and the understanding of how energy systems and use are related to  climate change.
  • Help schools and communities reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions through behaviour change and energy efficiency.
  • Help schools become demonstration centres for energy efficiency and sustainability in their communities. This will showcase how energy management technology can inform changes in building occupant behaviours leading to improved energy efficiency.

“Schools should prepare us for the future, not the past. The future of the world will be built on sustainability. If we learn what sustainable technologies are available when we are in school, we will be able to help shape the future of global sustainability when we graduate.”
