  15. 15. Climate change task p.1 <ul><li>In Estonia electricity is formed almost completely from oil shale. Assume that your monthly electric bill is 500 EEK (~32 EUR) and you are using price package Home 1. At the moment, the price is 1.61 EEK/kWh (no difference between day and night rate). There is also a fee for renewable energy, but the proportion is so small that it is not necessary to count it. </li></ul><ul><li>280 kWh of electrical energy is equivalent to ~1000 MJ energy. 27% of oil shale energy used in heat power stations reaches homes. The average calorific value is 11MJ/kg. The consequence of burning oil shale is 50% ash and the same amount of CO2 as the oil shale burned. One tree absorbs 20 kg of CO2 annually. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Climate change task p.2 <ul><li>Find out: </li></ul><ul><li>What is the amount of energy you use in one month? </li></ul><ul><li>How much oil shale is needed to burn in order to get this amount of energy? </li></ul><ul><li>How much ash and CO2 is formed? </li></ul><ul><li>How many trees should be planted in order to change the amount of CO2 you burned to oxygen again? </li></ul>
