Sources Of Energy

  1. 1. Amanda Mercer, Mariah Wells, & Courtney Young. Power & Energy
  2. 2. How to capture sources of energy <ul><li>Biomass - Biomass gasifies capture methane released from the plants and burns it in a gas turbine to produce energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Fossil fuels - A fossil-fuel power plant is a power plant that burns fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas or petroleum (oil) to produce electricity. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How to capture sources of energy <ul><li>Tidal energy- Tidal energy is produced through the use of tidal energy generators. These large underwater turbines are placed in areas with high tidal movements, and are designed to capture the kinetic motion of the ebbing and surging of ocean tides in order to produce electricity. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How to capture sources of energy <ul><li>River energy - The immense amounts of energy available from river, tide, and ocean currents are going unused.  The helical turbine now makes it efficient and practical to capture energy from flowing water. </li></ul><ul><li>Solar energy - Energy from the sun, solar energy, is harvested in two methods. Semiconductor technology called Photo-Voltaic (PV) converts light energy into electricity.  Thermal energy from the sun is harvested through heat absorption.  Both types of captured energy can be used immediately or stored for later use. </li></ul>
  5. 5. How to capture sources of energy <ul><li>Wind energy- another form of solar energy. Sunlight falling on oceans and continents causes air to warm and rise, which in turn generates surface winds. </li></ul><ul><li>Geothermal energy - Geothermal Energy is heat that comes from within the earth and is a powerful and under-used energy source. </li></ul>
