NEED, the National Energy Education Development Project, promotes an energy conscious and educated society by creating effective networks of students, educators, and business, government, and community leaders to design and deliver objective, multi-sided energy education programs. NEED works with energy companies, agencies, and organizations to bring balanced energy programs to the nation’s schools with a focus on strong teacher development, timely and balanced curriculum materials, signature program capabilities, and turn-key program management.
