Taken live by Total in 2005, planete-energies.com aims to serve as a reference site for all things energy. That makes children a core audience, since they'll be the movers and shakers of the future. Working with educational publisher Nathan, Total has developed a set of tools for teachers. And it's a hit!
The planete-energies.com site has been making sense of and explaining energy to the general public for ten years. High-level expertise and an openness to many viewpoints enable it to provide reliable, practical information. Young people are a core target audience for the site because, as Yamina Saheb, Senior Energy Policy Analyst at OPENEXP, member of planete-energies.com's editorial committee and contributor, puts it: "Children are the decision-makers of the future. Given all the energy-related changes we're witnessing and the major development and climate challenges we face, the information we provide is meant to help them understand and act. We're in a transition period: our generation must make changes, but also pass them on to the next." Planete-energies.com has a clear educational focus and the teams that work on it are upfront about their goal of making it the go-to site for knowledge and facts about energy — every type of energy.
