At SEI, Energy Literacy is a Priority
SEI is committed to increasing the public’s understanding of the broad and complex world of energy systems. That’s why we engage in a range of activities designed to promote energy literacy in a diversity of groups ranging from high school students to policymakers, to the general public, and especially to Georgia Tech students.
