Using our academic research and teaching modules for chemical engineering and environmental science undergraduate students, we present a method for laying a foundation for students to understand energy’s value in the 21st century more robustly and within the context of both the developed and the developing world. In this paper we argue that coming transitions will be supported primarily not by new technologic inventions or discoveries, but by matching systems to consumption patterns and vice versa.
