  • 6 renewable resources

    1. 1. Renewable Resources
    2. 2. <ul><li>Renewable Resource- energy source that is replaced as quickly as it is used. </li></ul><ul><li>Types of renewable resources </li></ul><ul><li>-Solar energy </li></ul><ul><li>-Hydroelectric </li></ul><ul><li>-Wind </li></ul><ul><li>-Geothermal </li></ul><ul><li>-Biomass Fuels </li></ul>
    3. 3. <ul><li>Solar Energy- energy from the sun. Photovoltaic cell- converts solar energy into electricity. </li></ul>
    4. 5. TVA’s Solar Energy Map
    5. 6. <ul><li>Hydroelectric- electricity made from energy of moving water. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex: Dams (Norris, Cherokee and Douglas) </li></ul>
    6. 7. Red-hydroelectric dams Yellow-fossil fuel plants Purple-nuclear power plants
    7. 8. <ul><li>Wind- energy from the wind </li></ul><ul><li>Ex: Windmills uses the energy of the wind to pump water and generate electricity. </li></ul>TVA’s wind power site is Buffalo Mountain near Oak Ridge
    8. 10. <ul><li>Geothermal Energy- thermal energy that is contained in hot magma. Uses steam from hot magma to rotate turbines to spin generators. </li></ul>
