About Student Energy



Student Energy is a global not-for-profit that is creating a movement of young leaders committed to transitioning the world to a sustainable energy future.



To open the eyes of the world’s students to all perspectives on energy.




EDUCATE students on energy and sustainability by helping them to understand the challenges and opportunities that face our global energy system.

INSPIRE students with the knowledge and courage to challenge the energy system.

UNITE like-minded students motivated to lead the world to a sustainable energy future.



Student Energy encourages youth engagement with energy: in the industry, in global forums, and in their communities. Students should have a voice wherever their future is being determined.



Student Energy takes a deliberately unbiased, balanced approach to energy education. We do not advocate for particular technologies, policies, or practices.  Student Energy presents as many perspectives on energy topics as possible and allows students to draw their own conclusions on how to build a sustainable energy future. We always strive to create meaningful educational opportunities, promote knowledge transfer and facilitate open debate.



GLOBALStudent Energy is global in our reach and in the perspectives. We aim to serve and include all of the world’s post-secondary students in our initiatives and content. Student Energy approaches energy literacy from a macro and international level. While regional issues are addressed and discussed, our primary focus is on understanding global energy systems and dynamics. Student Energy’s current network is made up of students in over 80 countries.

MULTIDISCIPLINARY - Student Energy believes that working in silos will not lead to the creative solutions needed to transition the world to a sustainable energy future. The organization strongly encourages students to learn about energy from perspectives outside of their own field of study and personal experience.

BALANCEDEnergy topics tend to be surrounded by polarized opinions and contradicting information, making it difficult for the public to discern the “truth.” Student Energy’s approach is to provide people with more information so they can see various perspectives, are able to think critically about the issues and can develop solutions.
