Energy is really important in all aspects of our daily lives; turning on the TV, travelling to school, heating our homes and food, and even the clothes we wear all rely on energy.
We can sometimes take it for granted, but it’s important to know about where energy comes from, how it’s used, and the challenges we face with it in the future. Knowing the answer to these questions lets us form opinions about what we should and can do to get more involved in our energy future.
OurFuture.Energy gives you a place to find unbiased, relevant and fascinating information about the energy industry. Through games, quizzes, animations, videos, and a whole bunch of stories, you’ll be able to understand energy in a way that makes sense to you.
An informed society and skilled workforce is vital for us to confront the challenges we face to deliver a secure, affordable and cleaner energy future. RenewableUK has worked in partnership with UK Onshore Oil and Gas, Opito, the Nuclear Industry Council and Glasgow Science Centre to develop OurFuture.Energy: an interactive website that will engage 11-16 year olds with the science underpinning the critical issues related to future energy supply and equip them with the knowledge to form their own informed opinion of the energy mix.
