    • 1. COMPARINGWIND POWER and<br />other RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES<br />
    • 2.
    • 3. This is EARTH.<br />
    • 4. This is EARTH.<br />She’s kinda HOT.<br />
    • 5. HELP.<br />This is EARTH.<br />She’s kinda HOT.<br />
    • 6. WHAT CAN WE DO?<br />
    • 7.
    • 8. Dunno.<br />
    • 9. Just kidding.<br />
    • 10. Several countries<br />are adapting renewable energy:<br />
    • 11. Several countries<br />are adapting renewable energy:<br />BIOMASS<br />
    • 12. Several countries<br />are adapting renewable energy:<br />SOLAR<br />BIOMASS<br />
    • 13. Several countries<br />are adapting renewable energy:<br />WIND<br />SOLAR<br />BIOMASS<br />
    • 14. Several countries<br />are adapting renewable energy:<br />WIND<br />SOLAR<br />BIOMASS<br />HYDRO<br />
    • 15. Several countries<br />are adapting renewable energy:<br />WIND<br />SOLAR<br />BIOMASS<br />HYDRO<br />GEOTHERMAL<br />
    • 16. to counteract the process of global warming.<br />
    • 17. From these 5,<br />
    • 18. From these 5,<br />WIND<br />SOLAR<br />BIOMASS<br />HYDRO<br />GEOTHERMAL<br />
    • 19. From these 5,<br />WIND<br />
    • 20. From these 5,<br />WIND<br />is the fastest-growing renewable energy source.<br />
    • 21. From these 5,<br />WIND<br />is the fastest-growing renewable energy source.<br />(for good reasons)<br />
    • 22. WIND<br />Let’s compare this guy:<br />
    • 23. WIND<br />Let’s compare this guy:<br />with these other guys:<br />HYDRO<br />BIOMASS<br />GEOTHERMAL<br />SOLAR<br />
    • 24. And see why many countries prefer wind<br />power to other renewable energy sources<br />
    • 25. ROUND 1<br />V<br />S<br />SOLAR<br />WIND<br />
    • 26. Here’s one interesting fact:<br />
    • 27. Here’s one interesting fact:<br />Wind energy is actually a form of solar energy.<br />
    • 28. Here’s one interesting fact:<br />Wind energy is actually a form of solar energy.<br />(uhuh)<br />
    • 29. That’s because winds are actually caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere from the sun. <br />This creates low-pressure and high-pressure areas, which cause air to move.<br />Here’s one interesting fact:<br />Wind energy is actually a form of solar energy.<br />(uhuh)<br />
    • 30. Anyways,<br />Everyone knows that the main energy source of every organism in the world is the<br />SUN.<br />
    • 31. It doesn’t mean it’s better for power generation though.<br />
    • 32.
    • 33.
    • 34. The sun’s gone.<br />
    • 35. Solar panels don’t work at night.<br />
    • 36. Wind turbines, on the other hand, work whenever as long as there’s wind.<br />
    • 37. Wind turbines, on the other hand, work whenever as long as there’s wind.<br />
    • 38. Wind turbines, on the other hand, work whenever as long as there’s wind.<br />So these guys are still gonna work even after the SUN comes down.<br />
    • 39. Wind turbines, on the other hand, work whenever as long as there’s wind.<br />So these guys are still gonna work even after the SUN comes down.<br />
    • 40. And the winner is…<br />WIND<br />‘coz:<br /><ul><li>Can generate electricity ANYTIME unlike solar panels which only work at daytime.
    • 41. Nearly all countries have a windy area. Few countries have continually sunny areas though.
    • 42. Wind turbines look cooler than solar panels. (I think)
    • 43. Solar power costs nearly twice more per KWh than wind power.</li></li></ul><li>ROUND 2<br />V<br />S<br />BIOMASS<br />WIND<br />
    • 44.
    • 45. BIOMASS<br />is a renewable energy resource taken from ‘recently alive’ plants.<br />
    • 46. It’s usually created from <br />farm crops, such as corn <br />and soybean.<br />BIOMASS<br />is a renewable energy resource taken from ‘recently alive’ plants.<br />
    • 47. It can be used to generate different forms of energy, such as heat, electricity and fuel.<br />It’s usually created from <br />farm crops, such as corn <br />and soybean.<br />BIOMASS<br />is a renewable energy resource taken from ‘recently alive’ plants.<br />
    • 48. There’s one problem though…<br />
    • 49. Converting biomass to other forms of energy involves<br />There’s one problem though…<br />
    • 50. BURNING.<br />
    • 51. BURNING.<br />Which produces greenhouse gases in the process, such as CO (carbon monoxide) and CO2 (carbon dioxide), that contribute to global warming.<br />
    • 52. On the other hand,<br />
    • 53. WIND TURBINES<br />
    • 54. WIND TURBINES<br /> have virtually ZERO greenhouse gas emissions.<br />
    • 55. (again)<br />And the winner is…<br />WIND<br />‘coz:<br /><ul><li>Does NOT produce greenhouse gas emissions during conversion, unlike with biomass.
    • 56. Can ‘pay off’ the energy spent for its manufacture in 4-5 months of generation, whilst harvesting biomass crops often takes more energy than can be produced with it.</li></li></ul><li>ROUND 3<br />V<br />S<br />HYDRO<br />WIND<br />
    • 57. HYDROPOWER<br />
    • 58. HYDROPOWER<br />Generates electricity through the use of falling water’s gravitational force.<br />
    • 59. HYDROPOWER<br />Generates electricity through the use of falling water’s gravitational force.<br />It’s also the most widely-used renewable energy resource – having 777 GW of installed worldwide capacity (2006).<br />
    • 60. It also doesn’t produce a lot of greenhouse gases during production.<br />
    • 61. It also doesn’t produce a lot of greenhouse gases during production.<br />(Just a little.)<br />
    • 62. It also doesn’t produce a lot of greenhouse gases during production.<br />(Just a little.)<br />Dams also have a variety of uses, such as flood control, making hydropower development doubly useful.<br />
    • 63. WIND TURBINES…<br />
    • 64. WIND TURBINES…<br />…on the other hand, look pretty cool. <br />Which could be another use for it:<br />
    • 65. WIND TURBINES…<br />…on the other hand, look pretty cool. <br />Which could be another use for it:<br />Terrain Decorations. <br />
    • 66. WIND TURBINES…<br />It also helps prevent global warming since it does not emit <br />any greenhouse gases.<br />
    • 67. After months of deliberation (and sleepless sleepovers)…<br />
    • 68. (for now.)<br />The winner is…<br />HYDRO<br />‘coz:<br /><ul><li>Currently the most widely-used renewable energy resource. Wind energy is catching up though, and it wouldn’t be long until it takes the top spot. Add the fact that it’s really hard to site a good location for a dam.
    • 69. Incredibly efficient if sited correctly. It’s also more reliable since water flow is almost always constant unlike wind, which is unpredictable.</li></li></ul><li>ROUND 4<br />V<br />S<br />GEOTHERMAL<br />WIND<br />
    • 70.
    • 71. GEOTHERMAL ENERGY<br />
    • 72. GEOTHERMAL ENERGY<br />is heat energy stored inside the Earth.<br />
    • 73. GEOTHERMAL ENERGY<br />is heat energy stored inside the Earth.<br />It can be harnessed by using a drill…<br />
    • 74. Like this one?<br />
    • 75. Um… No, Jeff.<br />
    • 76. Um… No, Jeff.<br />(not his real name)<br />
    • 77. Something more <br />like this one.<br />
    • 78. Anyways,<br />
    • 79. Drills<br />drill deep into the Earth to <br />create a geothermal well.<br />
    • 80. Drills<br />drill deep into the Earth to <br />create a geothermal well.<br />(like this one)<br />
    • 81. STEAM<br />
    • 82. is then utilized and converted to electricity.<br />STEAM<br />
    • 83. You can’t just put up a geothermal plant anywhere though.<br />
    • 84. You can’t just put up a geothermal plant anywhere though.<br />Places near tectonic plate boundaries are the best sites, <br />
    • 85. You can’t just put up a geothermal plant anywhere though.<br />Places near tectonic plate boundaries are the best sites, <br />(which aren’t really that many in the world.)<br />
    • 86. Siting a wind turbine location is a lot more forgiving.<br />
    • 87. Siting a wind turbine location is a lot more forgiving.<br />There are a LOT more windy areas in the world than tectonic plate boundaries.<br />
    • 88. And the winner is…<br />WIND<br />‘coz:<br /><ul><li>Does NOT produce greenhouse gas emissions during conversion, unlike with biomass.
    • 89. Can ‘pay off’ the energy spent for its manufacture in 4-5 months of generation, whilst harvesting biomass crops often takes more energy than can be produced with it.</li></li></ul><li>So, yeah. <br />Renewable Energy<br />Scoreboard<br />3<br />WIND<br />OTHERS<br />1<br />Wind was able to PWN all the renewable energy technologies except for hydropower.<br />
    • 90. Wind Power’s renewable energy market growth is considerably higher than Hydropower’s though.<br />It wouldn’t be long (like, maybe 50 years?) before wind becomes the most widely-used renewable energy resource since there are more feasible wind turbine locations than hydropower dam locations.<br />
    • 91. ANYWAYS,<br />
    • 92. FOR READING THE WHOLE PRESENTATION, <br />
    • 93. THANK YOU!<br />
