Renewabl resourses

by Greg Pavelka

solar energy

energy obtained directly from the sun

more pollution free

100 times greater than the entire world's electric power capacity

benefits the sun will not run out so you don't have to worry about that.

nucular energy

heat released from a nuclear react While nuclear power plants themselves do not create carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, or nitrogen oxides, the mining, enrichment, and transportation of uranium generates harmful fossil fuel byproducts.


  1. nuclear energy is the most concentrated energy
  2. nuclear power does not produce any waste


benefits: lower greenhouse gas intakes

powerful and efficient

low fuel cost

tidal power

water is collected in storage area's and pushed through turbines to make energy.

estimated at 2.9 million megawatts of power

1.The energy is created by utilizing the gravitational forces of the sun and moon, as tides are a result of their influences.

2.There are 2 basic theories on how tides are converted into power. According to the first theory the power of the horizontal movement of the water is converted into electricity. Whereas, in the second method energy is produced from the rise and drop of water levels.

benefits of using title power

water will never run out and can be used more than once.

geothermal energy

energy from heat derived from the earth's interior. Involves tapping the under ground receiver. Underground water is heated to high waters.

facts: About 10,000 years ago, Paleo-Indians used hot springs in North America for cooking. To figure out if there is a revisor you test the grounds tempter.

benefits: significant cost,reduce fossil fuels,no pollution,

biodeisel

general information: is a fuel derived from plant oils and animal fats. 80 percent diesel and 20 percent oil.

facts: corn is a major use of bio diesel. Most plants used are sugar cane and soybeans. Biodiesel system is expected to grow 100,000 per year.

Benefits: reusable,less pouting,can be distributed through existing fuel pumps.

hydropower

information: water power,simplest form of power,has been used for many centries.

Facts:Hydropower is electricity generated using the energy of moving water. Rain or melted snow, usually originating in hills and mountains, create streams and rivers that eventually run to the ocean.

Benefits:ALLows each state to produce there own energy,they can go from zero energy to max out energy,produces food control,irrigation and water supply.

wind power

Information: turn generators to produce power,The wind does not blow all the time and the speed varies how much power is.

Facts: increases jobs, the us has 61,110 wind mill available, Iowa and southbdakota generate 25 percent of the power.

benefits: wind does not run out,cost efficient,its sustainable.

biomass

information:wood chopped up to make fuel, also gives us energy edge in case of a disaster,water pipes can be prevented fom freezing.

facts: produced from all organic matireals, can reduce are need for fossil fuels.

benifits: renewable,helps reduce climate change,cleaner enviroment and widely avaibale
