Transcript

  • 1. The Renewable Energy Industry
  • 2. Renewable energy usage in the last decade
    Since the year 2000 the amount of renewable energy used has go up drastically. From a nearly immeasurable amount in 2000 to almost 10 million in 2008.
  • 3. The Five Most Common Types
    • Wind Energy
    • 4. Uses wind turbines to create electricity
    • 5. Geothermal Energy
    • 6. Uses heat from the earth’s core to create energy
    • 7. Solar Energy
    • 8. Uses rays from the sun to create energy
    • 9. Biomass Energy
    • 10. Uses organic material to burn to create energy
    • 11. Hydropower Energy
    • 12. Uses water to create energy
  • Wind Energy
    Changes kinetic energy to electrical energy
    Each turbine can produce up to 5,600 MW/h annually
    Wind turbines are made of steel and fiberglass
    California leads the U.S. in wind energy production
  • 13. Geothermal Energy
    • Three ways to capture
    • 14. Dry Steam
    • 15. Flash Steam
    • 16. Binary Cycle
    • 17. Reservoirs are classified as being either low temperature (below 150°C) or high temperature (above150°C)
  • Hydropower
    Approximately 73% of all renewable energy comes from hydropower
    Hydropower is generated by using flowing water by forcing it through piping called a penstock
    Then it turns a generator in order to produce electricity
    Dams are the largest form of hydropower energy, scientist are developing ways to a harness wave and tidal energy, but are still in developmental stages
  • 18. Solar power
    Solar power is created by collecting sunlight and converting it into electricity
    This process is called photovoltaic
    This is done by using solar panels, which are solar cells made from silicone that absorb the sun’s radiation
    The equipment for this process has no moving parts
    Little maintenance
    No emissions
    No noise
  • 19. Biomass
    Versatile form of renewable energy
    Burn fuel in boilers to heat water to turn a steam turbine which creates electricity
    Biomass fuel
    Wood
    Landfill trash
    Agricultural waste
    Wheat, corn, and other crops
    Burning Biomass is an alternative to burning coal
    Contains little sulfur and nitrogen, so it does not produce the pollutants that cause acid rain.
