Energy literacy
Essential readings

Fondation 3E is especially indebted to Vaclav Smil, C.M., FRSC, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Geography at the University of Manitoba for his council and advice on energy. Mr. Smil’s Energy at the Crossroads : Global Perspectives and Uncertainties (revised edition, 2005, The MIT Press, Cambridge Massachusetts, 427 pages) and Energy in Nature and Society : General Energetics of Complex Systems (2008, The MIT Press, Cambridge Massachusetts, 480 pages) should also be of interest.

A Handbook on Low-Energy Buildings and District Energy Systems: Fundamentals, Techniques, and Examples (2006, James and James, UK) by Danny Harvey, Professor of Geography and Planning at University of Toronto, should also be of interest.

The Encyclopedia of Earth provides on-line access to a comprehensive series of briefs on energy (Cutler Cleveland, editor-in-chief).
