Whereas the younger generation are expected to starts using environmentally friendly energy, in the form of new and renewable energy. This study aims to determine the tendency of young people to use renewable energy. 60 respondents were selected from department of environmental engineering students, Pasundan University in Bandung, Indonesia. The respondents range from first to fourth year students. Assumption used in respondents selection was student with environmental engineering educational background will have knowledge on renewable energy. This research conducted through questionnaires. The results show that only 10% of the respondents have used the renewable energy, i.e. solar energy. Whereas 90% of respondents do not use renewable energy due to lack of knowledge on how to start using it. Nevertheless, 97% of respondents consider that using green energy is a proud thing.
