Energy Quest

Energy Quest is the award-winning energy education website of the California Energy Commission. It debuted on the World Wide Web on October 1, 1995, to celebrate October as National Energy Awareness Month! Energy is an integral part of our daily lives. Without energy our society would decay into pre-historic savagery. Teaching an "energy ethic" to conserve finite resources is essential to our energy future, which is currently dependent on fossil fuels. We also must rely on our youth to help us create new ways to harness the elemental forces of our planet and the universe. They are tomorrow's scientists and inventors. They will discover new means of energy production and innovative ways to use less energy. We hope Energy Quest will answer their questions and spur creativity and imagination.
