Coal Coal is a fossil fuel because they have been formed from organic and prehistoric plants and animals. Burning fuel makes hot water to make steam and then steam turns into turbines then turbines turn generators that then turns into electrical energy.
Advantages of Coal -Cheap -Large amounts of electricity can be generated -Transportation is easy -Very efficient -Can be built almost anywhere
Disadvantages of Solar -Doesn’t work at night -Expensive to build solar power stations - Unreliable unless in sunny climate
Disadvantages of Hydroelectricity - dams are expensive to build - causes upstream to get flooded and rewinds animals homes - water quality and quantity downstream can be affected
Disadvantages of Wind Power - can kill birds - wind is not always predictable - can be noisy - some people feel that covering the landscape is unsightly
Disadvantages of Wave Power -Depends on waves sometimes lots of energy sometimes none -Needs a suitable site -Sometimes designs are noisier than the waves -Has to be able to withstand rough weather
Disadvantages of Bio Gas -When we burn it makes greenhouse gas just as fossil fuels do.
