Want to Learn about the Fundamentals of Energy?

The Energy 101 video series provides high level as well as regional perspectives on energy systems, resources, economics, policy, and technology fundamentals for a general audience from ages 14 to 114. It builds upon a previous and comprehensive Energy 101 MOOC developed by Georgia Tech’s Strategic Energy Institute and originally launched in 2012. Nearly 100,000 learners accessed the course in the past decade.

While the videos can be watched in any order, the best way to maximize impact is to watch them in sequence using this playlist. Additionally, the videos can be used individually to supplement lesson plans or presentations.
