    • Learning Objectives
      • You will check your understanding of different power sources
      • You should be able to recognise & undertake different ways of classifying power sources.
      • In addition, you should be able to recognise advantages and disadvantages of different power sources.

    • Resources
      • “ features of the environment which are needed and used by people .”
      • Natural Resources - occur in the air, water and on land.
      • Human Resources - labour, skills, machinery and capital.
    • Non-Renewable Resources
      • Are said to finite or non-sustainable as their exploitation and use will eventually lead to their exhaustion.
    • Renewable resources
      • A flow of nature - being continuous, they can be used over and over again.
      • Sustainable - they are renewable and self generating if left to nature e.g. trees, fish
        • However, if renewable resources are overused their existence may be threatened.
    • Resources Flow Chart
    • Reserves
      • are a non-renewable resource (e.g. coal) which exists in a finite quantity in the crust of the earth
    • Fossil Fuels and Minerals
      • Coal, Oil and Gas are non-renewable resources created from organic matter
      • They are used to produce energy and are the quickest and easiest way of generating vast amounts of energy
      • 1 modern ‘fossil fuel’ power station produces the same amount of energy as:
      • 300 wind turbines
      • 150 km 2 of solar panels
      • 100 kms of powerful coastal wave energy
    • Future Reserves
      • Oil 40-45 years
      • Natural Gas 50-65 years
      • Coal 200-300 years
      • MEDC’s contain 25% of the world’s population BUT consume 70% of the world’s fuels!
    • Task
      • Produce a leaflet advertising your preferred type of energy creation
      • Explain why it is a renewable form of energy
      • What its advantages are, but also if there are any problems
      • Find an example of where and how it works
      • Images may also be useful
