Managing Resources Lesson 1

  1. 1. Managing Resources
  2. 2. Name 10 ways of producing power! Which ones are shown on these slides?
  3. 13. Learning Objectives <ul><li>You will check your understanding of different power sources </li></ul><ul><li>You should be able to recognise & undertake different ways of classifying power sources. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, you should be able to recognise advantages and disadvantages of different power sources. </li></ul>
  4. 14. Energy table Fuelwood Nuclear Oil/gas Coal Disadvantages Advantages Description Resource
  5. 15. Resources <ul><li>“ features of the environment which are needed and used by people .” </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Resources - occur in the air, water and on land. </li></ul><ul><li>Human Resources - labour, skills, machinery and capital. </li></ul>
  6. 16. Non-Renewable Resources <ul><li>Are said to finite or non-sustainable as their exploitation and use will eventually lead to their exhaustion. </li></ul>
  7. 17. Renewable resources <ul><li>A flow of nature - being continuous, they can be used over and over again. </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainable - they are renewable and self generating if left to nature e.g. trees, fish </li></ul><ul><ul><li>However, if renewable resources are overused their existence may be threatened. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 18. Resources Flow Chart
  9. 19. Reserves <ul><li>are a non-renewable resource (e.g. coal) which exists in a finite quantity in the crust of the earth </li></ul>
  10. 20. Fossil Fuels and Minerals <ul><li>Coal, Oil and Gas are non-renewable resources created from organic matter </li></ul><ul><li>They are used to produce energy and are the quickest and easiest way of generating vast amounts of energy </li></ul><ul><li>1 modern ‘fossil fuel’ power station produces the same amount of energy as: </li></ul><ul><li>300 wind turbines </li></ul><ul><li>150 km 2 of solar panels </li></ul><ul><li>100 kms of powerful coastal wave energy </li></ul>
  11. 21. Future Reserves <ul><li>Oil 40-45 years </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Gas 50-65 years </li></ul><ul><li>Coal 200-300 years </li></ul><ul><li>MEDC’s contain 25% of the world’s population BUT consume 70% of the world’s fuels! </li></ul>
  12. 22. Task <ul><li>Produce a leaflet advertising your preferred type of energy creation </li></ul><ul><li>Explain why it is a renewable form of energy </li></ul><ul><li>What its advantages are, but also if there are any problems </li></ul><ul><li>Find an example of where and how it works </li></ul><ul><li>Images may also be useful </li></ul>
