As part of an effort to improve energy education, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking information to develop an energy-literacy framework. The goal of this initiative is to compile a set of national standards for energy literacy, which then can be used to improve understanding of energy, energy sources, generation, use, and conservation.

The DOE will host two public meetings to gather information for this initiative. The first meeting will be on Feb. 23 in Washington, D.C., and the second meeting will be on March 8 in San Francisco. The meetings will be of special interest to stakeholders in energy education and are open to the public. Space is limited and participation is available in-person only. To R.S.V.P., visit the DOE’s Website. For those who cannot participate in person, more information and opportunities to contribute are available through the DOE's Energy Literacy wiki.
