Diamond Ranking Exercise

  1. 1. Diamond Ranking exercise <ul><li>Look at the example below: </li></ul><ul><li>Newcastle United </li></ul><ul><li>Liverpool (3) Arsenal </li></ul><ul><li>(4) Sunderland (5) Middlesbrough (6) Portsmouth </li></ul><ul><li>(7) Chelsea (8) West Ham </li></ul><ul><li>(9) Manchester United </li></ul>
  2. 2. Now, use this same principle to rank the following energy resources... <ul><li>Fossil fuels, Wind Power , Nuclear Power , Wave Power, Tidal Energy , Hydroelectric Power (HEP), Bio-fuels , Geothermal , Solar Power. </li></ul><ul><li>Think about : availability of energy type, how much it costs to produce, effect on environment and impact on global warming and pollution. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Case Study 1 – Renewable Energy - Wind Power in Cornwall, UK, MEDC <ul><li>What is it? </li></ul><ul><li>Wind is created because some parts of the earth are heated more than others. Warm air rises and cooler air moves in to replace it – this movement of the air is wind. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How does wind energy work? <ul><li>Watch the film, look at the clip and try and bullet point how wind creates electricity.... </li></ul><ul><li>Where are they located? Delabole, Cornwall </li></ul>
  5. 5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this energy type? <ul><li>In groups, try and come up with as many advantages and disadvantages of wind power and write on sheet... </li></ul><ul><li>Look at the fact file.... </li></ul>
  6. 6. Did you get?? <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Once the wind turbine is built, running costs are very low. </li></ul><ul><li>It does not produce any carbon dioxide, which contributes to the greenhouse effect. </li></ul><ul><li>The land occupied by a wind farm can still be used for farming. </li></ul><ul><li>Wind is a renewable source so it will not run out </li></ul><ul><li>Wind farms are safe and easy to build. </li></ul><ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>We cannot control when the wind blows </li></ul><ul><li>Wind turbines shut down in very strong or very weak winds </li></ul><ul><li>They can only be built in certain areas. These areas need to be windy places, usually hilly areas or coasts. </li></ul><ul><li>Not everyone likes the appearance of wind farms. </li></ul><ul><li>Cost is more expensive than fossil fuels – on-shore= 4.2-5.2p </li></ul><ul><li>- off-shore = 6.2 – 8.4p </li></ul><ul><li>Coal = 2.5-3p </li></ul>
  7. 7. What does the following stand for? <ul><li>N </li></ul><ul><li>I </li></ul><ul><li>M </li></ul><ul><li>B </li></ul><ul><li>Y? </li></ul>
  8. 8. Now, using all your skills and things you have learnt today....
