The US Department of Energy recently posted a link on their website to NARA’s Energy Literacy Principles Matrix.

The “Matrix” is a collection of educational resources related to biofuel solutions that are economically viable, socially acceptable, and meet the high environmental standards of the Pacific Northwest.

You can use the Matrix to find teaching materials such as lesson plans, datasets, videos, images, activities, software and modules. All of the resources align to the energy principles and concepts as outlined in the Department of Energy’s peer reviewed Energy Literacy: Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts for Energy Education framework.

The “Matrix” is an important tool developed by NARA to help deliver a strategic goal to improve bioenergy literacy. Improving bioenergy literacy should help develop a workforce that can contribute to an emerging biomass to fuels and co-products industry while also providing the general public information so that they an contribute to policy and innovation.
