The ongoing energy transition presents a necessary shift towards renewable sources, such as wind and solar power, in the face of the challenges presented by the changing climates. This change, however, requires an understanding of the operation of renewable energy systems. In other words, the shift towards clean energy generation demands education. By combining art, design, and renewable energy education the renewable energy art and design (READ) approach provides a path for renewable energy education. READ approach is a customizable and flexible process developed to enable the creation of solar-powered devices while sharing knowledge on diverse subjects such as art, design, electronics, electricity, and computer science. Due to its versatility, READ is expected to enhance energy education and contribute to the transition towards a renewable-powered society.
