    Sources of energy Sources of energy Presentation Transcript

    • SOURCES OF ENERGY The Old and the New Jason Smith EDU 653
    • Fossil Fuels
      • Coal, oil and Natural gas.
      • Made from remains of ancient plants and animals. This is why they are called fossil fuels.
      • Most commonly used energy source in the world.
      • There are pros and cons to using them.
      • They are burned to create steam. The high pressured steam is passed through pipes and used to spin a turbine. The turbine spins a generator and creates an electric current.
    • Pros and Cons of Fossil fuels
      • Easy to get now
      • Does the job well of creating energy
      • All of our cars and factories are equipped to run on fossil fuels.
      • Cause pollution
      • Lead to global warming
      • Will run out someday/non-renewable
      • Much of the world’s oil is in middle east countries.
      • Pros
      • Cons
    • Other Alternatives…
      • Renewable and alternative energies.
      • Using natural resources to create electricity.
      • Most are cleaner and safer than fossil fuels.
        • Solar
        • Wind
        • Geothermal
        • Hydroelectric
        • Nuclear
        • Biomass
    • Renewable vs. Alternative
      • Solar
      • Hydroelectric
      • Wind
      • Biomass
      • Geothermal
      • Nuclear energy
      • Renewable – Never run out
      • Alternative – efficient but can run out
    • Solar Power
      • Capturing the sun’s energy to fuel a power plant to create electricity
      • Turning the sun’s energy directly into electric energy using solar cells.
      • Solar Energy
      • Pictures
    • Wind Energy
      • Using wind turbines to harness the wind’s energy.
      • The wind turbines turn a generator which creates electricity.
      • Wind
      • Pictures
    • Hydroelectric Energy
      • Using the energy of moving water to turn turbines and create electricity.
      • Hydroelectric
      • Pictures
    • Geothermal Energy
      • Using the natural heat and steam from inside the earth to spin a turbine to create electricity.
      • Geothermal
      • Pictures
    • Nuclear Energy
      • Using the energy from inside of an atom to create heat.
      • The heat will make steam to spin a turbine and create electricity.
      • Nuclear
      • Pictures
    • Biomass Energy
      • Burning of trash, crops or other “living” material.
      • The burning will create steam which will turn a turbine to create electricity.
      • Biomass
      • Pictures
    • ONE ALTERNATIVE….BIOMASS
      • The rest of this presentation will explain Biomass Energy.
      • Biomass Energy is just one of the possible solutions to our Energy problem.
    • BIOMASS ENERGY Energizing Our Future?
    • DEFINITION OF BIOMASS ENERGY
      • BIOMASS ENERGY IS THE USE OF LIVING MATERIAL TO CREATE ELECTRICITY
      • SOME MATERIALS USED COULD BE PLANTS, GARBAGE, AND ANIMAL WASTE
    • Gathering Crops For Energy
    • HOW IT WORKS...
      • PLANTS ARE BURNED IN ORDER TO CREATE ENOUGH HEAT TO BOIL WATER.
      • THE WATER IS TURNED INTO STEAM
      • THE STEAM WILL CREATE ENOUGH POWER TO SPIN A TURBINE
    • HOW IT WORKS...
      • THE TURBINE IS CONNECTED TO A GENERATOR
      • WHEN THE GENERATOR SPINS IT CREATES AN ELECTRIC CURRENT
      • THE ELECTRIC CURRENT IS SENT THROUGH POWER LINES TO HOMES AND BUSINESSES
    • ADVANTAGES
      • BIOMASS ENERGY WILL NEVER RUN OUT
      • IT DOES NOT ADD TO AIR POLLUTION
      • WHEN WE GROW PLANTS FOR BIOMASS ENERGY IT HELPS CLEAN THE AIR
    • ADVANTAGES CONT...
      • USING GARBAGE FOR ENERGY WILL HELP REDUCE LANDFILLS
    • DISADVANTAGES
      • COLLECTING ENOUGH WASTE FOR BIO-POWER COULD BE HARD
      • BIOMASS MATERIALS BURN FASTER THAN OIL AND COAL SO MORE WOULD BE NEEDED
      • THE LAND THAT IS NEEDED FOR CREATING BIOMASS CROPS IS BEING USED FOR FOOD PRODUCTION
    • MY CONCLUSION
      • I BELIEVE THAT BIOMASS IS A VERY GOOD SOURCE OF ENERGY FOR OUR FUTURE.
      • THE ONLY DOWNFALL SEEMS TO BE COLLECTING ENOUGH WASTE FOR ENERGY PRODUCTION
      • I THINK THE BIGGEST ADVANTAGES ARE THAT IT COULD REDUCE TRASH IN LANDFILLS AND THAT WE CAN GROW IT HERE IN OUR COUNTRY.
    • CONCLUSION
      • THE BIGGEST BENEFIT WOULD BE THAT WE CAN ELIMINATE GARBAGE AND OTHER WASTE WHILE CREATING CLEAN ENERGY AT THE SAME TIME
      • THE ADVATAGES FAR OUTNUMBER THE DISADVANTAGES FOR BIO-POWER
    • Your turn!
      • Your group will choose an alternative or renewable energy.
      • You will research how it works and the advantage and disadvantaged of using the source you chose.
      • You will create a Power Point presentation to report your findings to the class!
