Energy literacy: What is out there to know?

Langue: EN

Posté par Hüseyin KAYGIN

"Viewed as an essential tool, which sensitizes citizens to create sustainable energy consumption habits, energy literacy has attained a growing interest among researchers and policy makers in recent years. Energy literacy encompasses not only the cognitive domain, but also the affective and behavioral characteristics, enabling citizens to make appropriate decisions regarding energy. Considering its relevance, several studies have been carried out on this topic. In this paper, we seek to gather the main contributions of the existing literature on the subject, in order to concentrate and organize them. Most of the existent research seeks to assess the levels of literacy of the population, in the three dimensions – knowledge, affectivity and behavior –, to perceive the relationships between them, and which factors influence literacy levels".
