The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project will facilitate a virtual workshop to help families understand how energy is used in their homes, find ways to reduce energy waste, and understand options for integrating renewable energy in the home. NEED began as a one-day celebration of energy education when National Energy Education Day was recognized by a Joint Congressional Resolution.

Part of a series hosted by the Solar Decathlon: 10 virtual sessions with diverse topics ranging from tours of houses with innovative designs to residential energy usage to jobs in the energy sector. Offered at no cost, these webinars are available to the general public and particularly current and prospective homeowners; members of the real estate industry, educators; students and young professionals; home builders and renovation contractors, and others interested in viewing state-of-the-art homes.
