Energy Trilemma Resource

We have teamed up with Children’s University Scotland to create simple and fun activities to get you thinking about the energy trilemma and what it means in your everyday life.

They help you understand the basic science behind the energy sector and look at how we can reach a balance of secure, affordable and sustainable energy.

These three issues are known together as the energy trilemma.

Each activity comes with 3 ‘Essential Reading Links’ to the website, which will give you some background knowledge and ideas to help you complete the tasks.

There are also ‘Quiz Links’ you can complete on the website and enter your score in the box provided.
