  • 1. Hydroelectric Power
  • 2. 3ºBMarta NofuentesAzahara Romero
  • 3. Definition of renewable source of energy The renewable energy definition describes how renewables are an infinite source of energy. Renewable energy has been in use for thousands of years in one way or another. An example of this is how our ancestors used the wind for sailing, and we now use the wind to generate electricity.
  • 4. Different types ofrenewable source of energy
  • 5. BIOMASS
  • 6. WATER
  • 7. WIND
  • 8. SOLAR
  • 10. How hydroelectricity energy works
  • 11. Hydropower or water power is powerderived from the energy of falling water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes.
  • 12. Since ancient times, hydropowerhas been used for irrigation and the operation of various mechanical devices, such as watermills, sawmills, textile mills, dock cranes, domestic lifts and paint making.
  • 13. Wave energy
  • 14. Energy of the seas
  • 15. Energy of the rivers
  • 16. The Three Gorges Dam is a hydroelectric dam that spans theYangtze River by the town of Sandouping, located in Yiling District, Yichang, Hubei province, China. The Three Gorges Dam is the worlds largest power station in terms of installed capacity . In the year of 2012, the amount of electricity the dam generated is neck to neck with the Itaipu Dam.
  • 17. Hydroelectricity energy in Spain.● The reservoir of La Muela, is located in the municipality of Cortes de Palla Ts, in the province of Valencia, Valencia, Spain. ​ It was built in 1988 over an area of 115 ha and a maximum capacity of 20 cubic meters.
  • 18. Hydroelectricityenergy in Spain.
  • 19. Hydroelectricity energy in Spain.Cortes II Reservoir, is located in the municipality of Cortes de Pallas, in the province of Valencia, Valencia, Spain.It was built in 1988 in the river Júcar on a surface of 570 ha, with a maximum capacity of 118 cubic meters. It has a gravity dam.
  • 20. Environmental impact.
  • 21. Climate change.very diverse Such changes take place to ●12 time scales and on all the meteorological10 parameters: temperature, atmospheric pressure, rainfalls, cloudiness, etc.8 Columna 16 Columna 2 Columna 3420 Fila 1 Fila 2 Fila 3 Fila 4
  • 22. Global warming.● It is a term used to refer to the 12 phenomenon of the increase of the 10 global everage temperature, of the terrestrial atmosphere and of the 8 oceans. 6 Columna 1 Columna 2 Columna 3 4 2 0 Fila 1 Fila 2 Fila 3 Fila 4
  • 23. Acid rain.when the dampness in the air He is formed ● combines with the oxides of nitrogen and the dioxide of sulphur issued by factories, electric power stations and vehicles that burn coal or products derived from the oil.
  • 24. Energy Games
  • 25. Water is available in plenty of amounts on trueearth.Solar energy is the indirect source of solarpower. falseHydroelectricity creates no rain or acid rain. falseHydroelectric power is electricity produced by trueflowing wateThe kinetic energy of flowing water can be trueused to rotate turbinesWater turbines produces no hydroelectricity falseHydroelectricity is an eco-friendly process of true.generating electricityHydroelectricity doesnt pollute the trueenvironment. falseHydroelectricity produces electricity withoutwaterA large hydroelectric project involves building truea huge dam on a river
  • 26. Nuclear power is clean but the nuclear Truewaste is very dangerous.All three fossil fuels ( coal , oil and gas ) Falserelease H2O.Renewable energy resources DONT TruePROVIDE MUCH ENERGY.The non-rewenables are the THREE TrueFOSSIL FUELS and NUCLEAR.O2 adds to the Greenhouse Effect , causing Falseglobal warming.
