SCIENCE PROECTS IN RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY: A guide for Secondary School Teachers

Renewable energy technologies are clean sources of energy that have a much lower environmental impact than
conventional energy technologies.
Importing energy is costly while most
renewable energy investments are spent
on local materials and workmanship to
build and maintain the facilities.
Renewable energy investments are
usually spent within the United States, frequently in the same state, and often in the same town. This means your energy dollars stay home to create jobs and fuel local economies, rather than going overseas. After the oil supply disruptions of the early 1970s, our nation has increased its dependence on foreign oil supplies instead of decreasing it. This increased dependence impacts
more than just our national energy
policy.
