In the current economic context of the energy crisis caused by global warming, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and the increased prices for fuel and gas, new requirements are imposed on the educational system. International energetic trade, the use of renewable sources, energy saving, and energy efficiency have become common terms in education since childhood. Energy education should be based on new concepts, new rules, and trends, linked to EU regulations, and rapidly implemented at the national level. The requirements for each level of education, together with related projects developed in the EU states and Romania are presented separately. The new approaches to teaching energy management in secondary schools and universities are detailed separately. The main steps, directions, and recommendations of the implementation plan are mentioned both for primary and secondary schools and high schools and universities. The paper ends with some conclusions as necessary and future action steps and with some recommendations.
