Synopsis
  • This interactive map and chart shows the share of electricity from low-carbon sources in different countries of the world, starting from the year 1985.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The interactive provides three different ways for students to explore data (chart, map, table).
  • Students may choose to view datasets for various geographic locations and time periods.
  • Related research and data are linked.
  • The site explains how the data was collected.
Additional Prerequisites
  • Learners need to be familiar with the different sources of electricity.
  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.
Differentiation
  • There are other related interactive maps for other sources of electricity. 
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

The resource explores electricity from low-carbon sources (nuclear, wind, solar, geothermal, etc.) This is recommended for students to learn and understand how electricity is generated from these sources.
