Share of Electricity Production from Coal

|
Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This resource includes an interactive map and graphs that show the share of electricity from coal for countries around the world since 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 energy.
  • 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 energy.
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

Absolute electricity production from coal has been converted by share to total electricity production in each of the selected countries under study. This method is appropriate to explore absolute percentage of electricity production from coal in the countries. The resource is recommended for students to examine these changes in electricity production from coal.

Standards
