ABSTRACT
The article focuses on educating children about sustainable energy in Great Britain. Having systems for generating renewable energy in schools can help in the education of children about renewable energy. Renewable energy sources include wind turbines, solar photovoltaic panels, and a central heating system. Green energy should not only be talked about but rather, it should be part of the children's school life. Energy theory and practice should be included in the curriculum of schools. At very young ages, children should be taught the value energy so they will know how to save energy.
