Water is a good, clean source of energy. People are beginning to use water for more things because unlike fossil fuels water is good for the environment and doesn’t produce smoke. You can capture water energy by dams, and water wheels. Hydro electric power includes: wave energy, tidal, rivers and filling water.
You can store hydro power in dams and/or in a pumped storage plant .
- Solar energy is also a good way to get energy, more and more people are getting solar panels on the roofs of there houses, so they can save money on there electricity bills. Some electric companies also use solar panels.
-solar thermal plants. They are capable of storing 16 hours of heat and 90% of U. S. Power demand.
- Fossil fuels include oil, coal, and natural gas. These are all non-renewable sources of energy that are formed from plant and animals that lived about 300 million years ago. Fossil fuels were the main source of energy since about 1800 ad. You can capture fossil fuels by drilling and mining.
- Compressed-air energy storage ( CAES ), air is compressed and then pumped in natural underground reservoirs.
Fission-splitting an atom (uranium)
Fusion- cold energy (safer)
Nuclear energy is already stored as binding energy in the atom nuclei and is released either by nuclear fission, by nuclear fusion, or by radioactive decay of these nuclei.
Biomass energy is stored in non- fossil organic materials such as wood, straw, vegetable oils and wastes from the forest like the energy in fossil fuels; bioenergy is derived from solar energy that is stored in plants during the process of photo-syntheses. You can use biomass for food, bio-chemical, and for burning.

- geothermal energy is created by generating energy from the earth and capturing hot water.
Geothermal energy is stored in the earth, underground
Wind energy is conducted by wind mills. And is a very clean and efficient source of energy this is captured by wind mills
a group of Iowa cities are trying not only to harness wind power but store it underground for later use. They would build a power plant that uses wind turbines to drive compressed air into underground aquifers, and it can be relished when needed.
