WHY DON’T WE USE MORE RENEWABLE ENERGY
Renewable energy can be produced using sources like the wind, sunlight, hydrogen, geothermal energy, biomass, flowing rivers, and even the power of the ocean! We stop adding greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide) to the atmosphere, and that the speed of global warming may be slowed.
Taking care of the Earth….
It provides us with food and water.
It gives us a place to run and play.
It’s the only HOME we have.
Wind Farms Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as electricity, using wind turbines. Large-scale wind farms are connected to the electric power transmission network; smaller facilities are used to provide electricity to isolated locations. Utility companies increasingly buy back surplus electricity produced by small domestic turbines.…
Geothermal Power Geothermal power is power extracted from heat stored in the earth. This geothermal energy is generated from the original formation of the planet, from radioactive decay of minerals, and from solar energy absorbed at the surface. It has been used for space heating and bathing since ancient Roman times, but is now better…
Biomass Power Biomass is biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms, such as wood, waste, and alcohol fuels. Biomass is commonly plant matter grown to generate electricity or produce heat. For example, forest residues (such as dead trees, branches and tree stumps), yard clippings and wood chips may be used as biofuel. However, biomass…
Solar Energy and Solar Power
Solar energy is the radiant light and heat from the Sun that has been harnessed by humans. Solar power is the generation of electricity using solar energy. Solar Power Technology Sunlight can be converted directly into electricity using photovoltaics, or indirectly with concentrating solar power, which normally focuses the sun’s energy to boil water which…
