Energy

  1. 1. Madison V
  2. 2. <ul><li>Solar energy comes from the sun’s radiation. </li></ul><ul><li>There are two types of energy: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Passive solar energy for example may </li></ul><ul><li>come from constructing a building to </li></ul><ul><li>face the sun which will catch the sun’s </li></ul><ul><li>heat through the windows. </li></ul><ul><li>2.Active Solar energy for example gets </li></ul><ul><li>sunlight and turns it into electrical </li></ul><ul><li>energy. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Environmentally Friendly </li></ul><ul><li>Economically Beneficial </li></ul><ul><li>Easily Accessible </li></ul><ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Coast </li></ul><ul><li>Large area for solar panels </li></ul><ul><li>Pollution to panels </li></ul><ul><li>Only useful during the day </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This energy is a heating of our oceans, earth, and atmosphere by the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Free </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable resource </li></ul><ul><li>Clean </li></ul><ul><li>Non-polluting </li></ul><ul><li>Electricity </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Unreliable </li></ul><ul><li>More turbines being needed to make a bigger impact. </li></ul><ul><li>It cost’s a lot of money to build more turbines. </li></ul><ul><li>In the process of building turbines it could endanger animals </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Hydropower is the most important renewable source of energy. </li></ul><ul><li>These are some of the largest producers of hydropower: China, Canada, Brazil, and the United States </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable </li></ul><ul><li>Water provided by nature </li></ul><ul><li>Helps reduce green house gas </li></ul><ul><li>Low costs </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Very high investment costs </li></ul><ul><li>Precipitation </li></ul><ul><li>Loss of fish habitat </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Geo means the Earth. </li></ul><ul><li>Thermal means Heat. So the Earths Heat . </li></ul><ul><li>Geo Thermal </li></ul><ul><li>Erath Heat </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Significant Cost Saving </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce Reliance on Fossil Fuels </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental Benefits </li></ul><ul><li>Direct Use </li></ul><ul><li>Job Creation and Economic Benefits </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Not Widespread Source of Energy </li></ul><ul><li>High Installation Costs </li></ul><ul><li>Can Run Out of Steam </li></ul><ul><li>Suited To Particular Region </li></ul><ul><li>May Release Harmful Gases </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Biofuels are made of mixed biological material. </li></ul><ul><li>Biofuels can be made of relatively any from ethanol, vegetable oil, wood, and even algae </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>They are non-toxic </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable </li></ul><ul><li>Biodiesel is biodegradable </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Biofuels may raise the price of some certain foods. </li></ul><ul><li>Heavily dependent on Oil </li></ul><ul><li>Soil erosion will grow </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Nuclear power is reliable </li></ul><ul><li>Produces small amounts of waste </li></ul><ul><li>Does not contribute to the green house affect. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of money for safety </li></ul><ul><li>It can be a disaster if it grows wrong </li></ul><ul><li>Very dangerous </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>I think that Biofuels are the best out of the six because it is non-toxic, renewable, and it does not let out green house gases also safer for the environment. </li></ul>
