Types Of Energy

  1. 1. Types Of Energy By: Megan and Chelsea
  2. 2. Wind Energy <ul><li>Captured by wind turbines </li></ul><ul><li>Stored by batteries </li></ul>
  3. 3. Biomass <ul><li>stored energy from the sun </li></ul><ul><li>stored in plant life </li></ul><ul><li>food </li></ul><ul><li>bio-chemical (ethanol) </li></ul><ul><li>for burning </li></ul><ul><li>Storage: store it immediately after harvest; store (store meaning cutting and packing) it in your shed </li></ul>
  4. 4. Geothermal <ul><li>heat from within the earth </li></ul><ul><li>hot springs </li></ul><ul><li>mineral water (good for skin) </li></ul><ul><li>Storage: geothermal energy is stored in heat-activated indestructible underground molten cells next to Earth’s crust in South America. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Hydropower <ul><li>we use water dams for energy </li></ul><ul><li>wave energy </li></ul><ul><li>tidal </li></ul><ul><li>folding water </li></ul><ul><li>river </li></ul><ul><li>Storage: hydropower is stored in pumped storage plant </li></ul>
  6. 6. Solar Power <ul><li>we use a device that absorbs heat from the sun </li></ul><ul><li>solar panels </li></ul><ul><li>Storage: photovoltaic cell </li></ul>
  7. 7. Fossil Fuels <ul><li>collected by drilling </li></ul><ul><li>coal </li></ul><ul><li>petroleum </li></ul><ul><li>natural gases </li></ul>
  8. 8. Nuclear Energy <ul><li>we get it by mining </li></ul><ul><li>two types </li></ul><ul><li>fission: splitting an atom (Uranium) </li></ul><ul><li>fussion: cold energy (Safer) </li></ul><ul><li>Storage: In current nuclear power plants, nuclear energy is released when U235 undergoes fission. This energy is not stored, it is used as soon as it is released, to produce electricity. </li></ul>
