DEFINITION WORK Energy is the ability to do work, measured in joules (J). Power is the amount of work done per unit of time. The unit of power is the watt, defined as one joule per second. Energy is usually expressed as ENERGY kilowatt per hour, the energy consumed in one hour by an object doing a work of 1,000 joules per second. POWER
WARNING! We must not confuse energy with power. For example, in Spain, the wind energy power doubles the nuclear energy power; however, the nuclear energy doubles the wind power. ENERGY ENERGY POWER PROVIDED RESSOURCE (2008) WIND 16,000 MW 31,000 GWh NUCLEAR 8,000 MW 59,000 GWh
TRANSFORMATION OF ENERGY Primary energy is energy that has not been subjected to any transformation process. Secondary energy is an energy form which has been transformed from another one. Electrical energy is the most common example, being transformed from a primary energy, such as the heat or the movement.
ELECTRICITY Nowadays electricity is the most important secondary energy. Electricitys extraordinary versatility means it can be put to an limitless set of applications (transport, heating, lighting, communications…) 60 W 200 W
ENERGY CONSUMPTION The energy stock is very difficult, so the energy production must be adapted to fit the energy demand. Four family members (Spain, 2008) 4 MWh High-speed rail (Madrid-Barcelona) 26 MWh Ironwork (1 000 000 t) 400 000 MWh Spain (2008) 263 000 000 MWh
FORMATION Petroleum or crude oil is a fossil fuel formed by the accumulation of zooplankton and algae in the bottom of prehistoric seas. It was buried under heavy layers of sediment resulting in high levels of heat and pressure, which resulted in the formation of petroleum. This process takes hundreds of thousands of years, so petroleum is considered a non-renewable resource.
DISTRIBUTION The extraction and distribution of petroleum (mainly by oleoduct and oil tankers) is very difficult and dangerous. In 1988, a fire in Ppiper Alha, a North Sea In 1989, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez spilled oil production platform, killed 167 men. 500 000 barrels of crude oil in Alaska.
REFINING AND USES Fuel for transport (48%): gasoline (petrol), diesel fuel (petrodiesel), kerosene, fuel oil… Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG): butane, propane… Naphta for plastics Others: fuel oil for thermal power stations, asphalt, lubricants…
PRODUCTION The production of petroleum is concentred in bounded geographical areas, often in very troubled and unstable countries. Saudi Arabia 10 Mbbl/d
CONSUMPTION Most of industrialized countries must import large quantities of petroleum, even those producing it. Nowadays petroleum is the most valuable merchandise. United States 12 Mbbl/d
OPEC The ‘Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is an oil cartel of countries which join together to control prices and limit competition.
OPEC The OPEC, whose members are mostly dictatorships, dominates the global energy market and has the power to trigger a world, crisis. All countres depend on it because they need to import large quantities of petroleum.
PRIMARY ENERGY IN SPAIN(2008) 7.6% renewable 10.7% nuclear 9.7% 47.6% coal petroleum 24.3% natural gas Spain needs to import huge quantities of petroleum because of the lack of freight trains. The petroleum dependance of Spanish economy is roughly 47% (in Europe 35%)
OIL PEAK Peak oil is the point in time when the maximum rate of global petroleum extraction is reached, after which the rate of production declines. It is an unavoidable phenomenon, but the development of China and India has speeded up the process.1850 1875 1900 1925 1950 1975 2000 2025 2050 2075 2100 2125 2150 2175 2200

COAL Coal is a fossil fuel formed by the accumulation of plan matter deeply buried by sediment. Coal is the largest source of energy for the generation of electricity worlwide (41 % en 2006).
KINDS OF COAL BROWN COAL BLACK COAL PEAT ANTHRACITE (LIGNITE) (BITOMINOUS COAL) DOMESTIC HEATING THERMAL POWER IRONWORK
COAL Open-pit mining refers to a method of extracting coal from the earth by their removal from an open pit.
Undergorund mining methods arenecessary when coal veins occurdeep below the surface.
Underground mining, which is more labor-intensive, has often become uneconomicalbecause of the reduction in the price oftransport.

NUCLEAR FISSION Nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts, producing energy.
URANIUM Uranium is used to fuel nuclear power plant. It is a very common mineral, but the extraction is uneconomical in most of places. Kazakhstan 13 820 t
ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION 1 kg uranium = 100 coal wagons (3,000 t)
URANIUM ENRICHMENT Natural uranium has a too low concentration of 235U (1%), the fissile isotope. It must be purified in order to obtain a powder (yellowcake) and later processed to produce the enriched uranium, that has a greater than 3% concentration of 235U. Natural uranium Yellowcake Enriched uranium (20,000 Tm) (230 Tm) (24 Tm)
NUCLEAR PROPULSION Many military submarines and aircraft carriers use small nuclear reactors as their power plants. These vessels don’t need to stop for fuel like their conventional counterparts, being limited only by crew endurance and supplies.

RADIOACTIVE WASTES A nuclear power plant produces 24 TM of radioactive wastes every year: 23 Tm of depleted uranium and 732 kg of transuranium elements (plutonium, cesium, americium, neptunium…). Transuranium elements are very radioactive because of theirs gamma rays, often for million years. Exposure to high levels of radioactive wastes may cause serious harm or even death: burns to the skin and cancer and maybe other long-range effects (e.g. congenital malformations).
STOCK IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS Several days later, the radiation has decrased enough to allow the transfer fo the wastes to the pool. The water in the pool works as a screen, so the stock is perfectly secure. However, its capacity is limited to 30 years maximum.
VITRIFICATION Several years later, the radiation is low enough to manipulate this material. It is vitrified in order to compress it (3 m3) and to avoid the dissolution in water, which is very dangerous to public health.
NUCLEAR FLAKS A nuclear flask is a container that is used to transport active nuclear materials. Each flask weighs more than 50 tonnes, and transports usually not more than 2.5 tonnes of spent nuclear fuel.
DEEP GEOLOGICAL REPOSITORY A deep geological repository is a nuclear waste repository excavated below 300 meters within a stable geologic environment.
PLUTONIUM Plutonium, a by-product of nuclear power plants, is a key component in nuclear weapons. This is the reason some countries with a lot of energy resources want to build nuclear power plants.
DEPLETED URANIUM Depleted uranium is a byproduct of uranium enrichement and spent nuclear reactor fuel. It is very useful because of its very high density (68% denser than lead). Civilian uses include counterweights in aircraft, radiation shielding in medical radiation therapy and containers used to transport radioactive materials. Military uses include defensive armor plating and armor-piercing projectiles.
MOX Mixed oxide, or MOX fuel, is nuclear fuel containing spent nuclear reactor fuel (plutonium, depleted uranium, etc.), which is processed in order to be used in modern nuclear power plants.
TRANSMUTATION Nuclear transmutation is the conversion of one chemical element or isotope into another. This occurs either through nuclear reactions (in which an outside particle reacts with a nucleus), or through radioactive decay (where no outside particle is needed). Artificial nuclear transmutation has been considered as a possible mechanism for reducing the volume and hazard of radioactive waste. 243Am ABSORTION 244Am OF A NEUTRON Radiactivity : Radioactivity : 10,000 years 10 hours
THREE MILES ISLAND The Three Mile Island accident was a partial core meltdown in a PWR in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania near Harrisburg (USA) in 1979. Containment did not fail, and just a small quantity of radioactive gases from the leak were vented into the atmosphere through specially designed filters under operator control (460 μSv). Radiation releases from the accident had no perceptible effect on cancer incidence in residents near the plant,
THREE MILES ISLAND Public reaction to the event was probably influenced by The China Syndrome, a movie which had recently been released and which depicts an accident at a nuclear reactor. The accident crystallized anti- nuclear safety concerns among the general public.
CHERNOBYL The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred in 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (RBMK) in the Soviet Union (now Ukraine). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history. An experiment, combined with a series of human failures, resulted in a explosion in the reactor, which released a huge quantity of radiation (RBMK doesn’t have any containment structure). Roughly 4,000 people were killed: 57 in the explosion and the rest because of the cancer.
LIQUIDATORS Most of people who died were liquidators, name given in the former USSR to approximately 800,000 people who were in charge of the removal of the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster on the site of the event. They included personnel of the reactors, firefighters, medical personnel, construction workers who constructed the sarcophagus over the exploded reactor, transport workers, the coal miners who pumped out the contaminated water to prevent its entrance into groundwater…
CONTROVERSY The controversy which has surrounded the use of nuclear fission reactors to generate electricity for civilian purposes results from the nuclear weapons, commonly associated with nuclear power.
NEUTRON BOMB (N-BOMB) A neutron bomb is a type of thermonuclear weapon designed specifically to release a large neutron radiation rather than explosive energy. Although their extreme blast and heat effects are not eliminated, it is the enormous radiation released that is meant to be a major source of casualties. Such radiation is able to penetrate buildings and armored vehicles to kill personnel that would otherwise be protected from the explosion.
EFFECTS OF A 10 KT BOMB SEVERE DAMAGE ZONE (radius of 0.8 km) Few buildings standing Very few people survive (subterranean parking garages) Very high radiation, increasing risks to survivors
EFFECTS OF A 10 KT BOMB MODERATE DAMAGE ZONE (radius of 1.6 km) Most buildings severely damaged or collapsed Serious injuries; early medical assistance can significantly improve number of survivors Limited visibility for an hour because of dust raised by the shock wave
EFFECTS OF A 10 KT BOMB LIGHT DAMAGE ZONE (radius of 16 km) Blown windows and doors Mostly minor injuries highly survivable
EFFECTS ON HEALTH • People may be subject to burn injuries up to two miles away • Observation of the thermal flash can result in temporary or permanent eye injuries, even via peripheral vision • Exposure rates of 10,000 μSv during the first six hours post- detonation may be observed.. Radiation can be an important contributor to casualties some weeks or months after the explosion (5% of exposed people will die from cancer)
EUROPEAN PRESSURIZED REACTOR (EPR) The EPR is a third generation pressurized water reactor (PWR) design. The main design objectives are increased safety while providing enhanced economic competitiveness (MOX fuel, 1650 MW, etc.).
TOSHIBA 4S The Toshiba 4S (Super Safe, Small and Simple) is a micro nuclear reactor design (10 MW). The reactor would be located in a sealed, cylindrical vault 30 m underground, while the building above ground would be 11 m tall. This power plant is designed to provide 10 MW of electrical power continously for 30 years.
NUCLEAR FUSION n n + n + + deuterium helium n + + n n ENERGY + n n n tritium neutron
NUCLEAR FUSION The nuclear fusion, which is a phenomenon produced in stars or in thermonuclear weapons, could be a form of energy with the same advantages as nuclear fission reactors (high power, no pollution, no CO2, etc.) but without theirs disadvantages (radioactive waste, radiation leaks, dependence on uranium, etc.).
ITER The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is an Construction of the facility began in 2008 and first plasma is expected in 2018. The total price of constructing the experiment is expected to be in excess of € 20 billion.
ITER The plasma, a gas of charged particles, is heated to a temperature of 150,000,000 ºC in order to give the nuclei enough energy to overcome their electrostatic repulsion. The plasma is confined using magnetic fields to contain the particles in a small enough volume for a long enough time for much of the plasma to fuse. The machine is expected to demonstrate the principle of getting more energy out of the fusion process (500 MW) than is used to initiate it (50 MW).

WIND ENERGY Wind energy is the kinetic energy of the air in motion. The wind has been used for thousands of years as a source of energy: Sailors capture it in the sails of their ships, and the Netherlands are famous for the windmills used for pumping water to drain polders forming agricultural land.
WIND GENERATORS A wind generator is used to produce electricity. There are different types of turbines, but most of them have a power of 2 MW.
WIND GENERATORS Horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWT) must be pointed into the wind. Vertical-axis wind turbines (or VAWT) don’t need to be pointed into the wind to be effective, but the power is lower.
SMALL WIND TURBINES Small wind turbines are wind turbines which have lower energy output than large commercial wind turbines, such as those found in wind farms. They produce electricity at a rate of 300 to 10,000 watts.
BACKUP ENERGY Electricity generated from wind power can be highly variable at several different timescales (from hour to hour, daily, and seasonally), so it needs backup power resources, usually combined cycle power plants. It results in a lot of troubles: energy waste, breakdowns, etc. The instability and unpredictability are the main problem of wind energy. RATE OF WIND POWER PRODUCTION IN SPAIN (2008) 24 november 2008 16:47 48% 27 november 2008 16:22 1%
OFFSHORE WIND POWER Offshore wind power refers to the construction of wind farms in bodies of water to generate electricity from wind. Better wind speeds are available offshore compared to on land, so offshore wind power’s contribution in terms of electricity supplied is higher.
OFFSHORE WIND POWER Lillgrund Wind Farm, located about 10 km off the coast of Sweden, has 48 wind turbines and a capacity of 110 MW.
WIND ENERGY PRODUCTION In 2009 worldwide capacity of wind-powered generators was 159 GW. Energy production was 340 TWh, which is about 2% of worldwide electricity usage. United States 35,000 MW (1.8 %)

SOLAR ENERGY Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaic systems, or indirectly using solar thermal power systems. Earth receives from the sun a power of 170 millions of Gigawats, so the solar power potential is huge. Actually solar energy is the origin of every energy in Earth but the nuclear power, geothermal power and tidal power.
SOLAR POWER FACTORS Solar fluctuations Astronomical factors (latitude, season, hour…) Weather (clouds, fog, mist…)
PASSIVE SOLAR ENERGY The most ancient and important kind of solar energy is passive solar energy, which doesn’t involve the use of mechanical or electrical devices, but an appropriate building design: placement of room-types and equipment in the house, WINTER orienting the building to face the equator, adequately sizing windows to face the midday sun in the winter and be shaded in the summer….

SOLAR WATER HEATING Solar water heating systems use heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. It must include an auxiliary energy source (e.g. gas heating system) that is activated when the water in the tank falls below a minimum temperature setting such as 55°C. Israel is the per-capita leader in the use of solar hot water systems with over 90% of homes using them.

BIOMASS Biomass is a renewable energy source that uses organic matter as fuel in order to produce energy. It is the most common energy source in the world. It could be considered a way of solar energy storage, as the plants use the sunlight to grow.
PHOTOSYNTHESIS SUNLIGHT Although burning organic matter produces CO2, it is the same amount of carbone that had been absorbed by the plant by the photosynthesis. As a result, biomass can be considered a clean energy source. CO2 OXYGEN EAU
TYPES OF BIOMASS There are different types of biomass: Natural biomass, produced without human intervention (deadwood removal) Residual biomass, a by-product resulting from the agriculture or industrial activities that use wood Industrial biomass, that uses industrial crops to obtain biofuel
FIRST GENERATION BIOFUELS First generation biofuels are made from crops usually grown for food. Biodiesel results from oil contained in some crops (soya, oilseed rape) and bioethanol results from the fermentation of sugarcane or maize.
BIOFUELS PRODUCTION (2006) ETHANOL (40,000 m. litters) BIODIESEL (6,500 m. litters)
REPLACEMENT ENERGY TO FOSSIL FUEL? It is impossible to replace completely fossil fuel with first generation biofuel. We would need to grow crops in a space several times the surface on Earth in order to produce enough biofuel.
SECOND GENERATION BIOFUELS Second generation biofuels uses species whose exploitation is purely energetic, so the yield is much better. The most important is jatropha, a drought-tolerant plant grown to make biodiesel.
THIRD GENERATION BIOFUELS Third generation biofuel, also called oilgae, is a biofuel from algae or microalgae. Algae are low-input, high-yield feedstocks to produce biofuels. Based on laboratory experiments, it is claimed that algae can produce up to 30 times more energy per acre than land crops such as soybeans (the growth rate is 9 days). With the higher prices of fossil fuels (petroleum), there is much interest in algaculture (farming algae).

GEOTHERMAL ENERGY Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. It originates from the original formation of the planet, from radioactive decay of minerals and from volcanic activity. From hot springs, geothermal energy has been used for bathing since Paleolithic times and for space heating since ancient Roman times.
