Unit outline, Energy and Equity in Environmental Science course
This semester-long unit moves from the basics of energy, to energy use in our homes, to sources of electric power in our home state of NY. We ended with a self-directed project on one of the following local energy justice campaigns: peaker plants, bus-route redesign, and community-owned solar. Learning goals: Energy is conserved during transformations from one form of energy storage to another. These transformations include heat lost to the surroundings. Electricity use has environmental consequences that vary by type of electricity generation. Issues of energy justice are relevant in our New York City community.
