Abstract

Pakistan is facing an energy crisis that has created serious issues for the weak economy and unstable national security. The objectives were to determine the extent of knowledge, attitude, and behavior of secondary school students regarding energy literacy. A total of 400 students and 28 teachers were selected as the sample. The study concluded that students showed better attitudes and behaviors toward energy literacy but poor knowledge. A strong relationship between affective and behavioral dimensions meant that students knew the significance of saving energy. There was a meaningful difference between the views of students in energy literacy on the basis of gender and school location. It recommended that content related to energy literacy may be updated according to the needs of modern era. As Pakistan is suffering from an energy crisis, it is significant to save energy.
