Renewable and Non renewable energy

Renewable energy - solar energy


"Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photo

voltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis."

A single solar panel the size of a piece of paper is 25,000 to 35,000 for a 5 kilo system

nuclear enegy

"Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant. Nuclear energy can be used to create electricity, but it must first be released from the atom. In nuclear fission, atoms are split to release the energy. A nuclear reactor, or power plant, is a series of machines that can control nuclear fission to produce electricity." One of the cool fact we learned during this research is that sometimes very rarely nuclear power plants blow up and the impact and radiation of the explosion is enough to wipe out everything in a 5 mile radius!

innovative energy - solar panel roads

Big image
the solar road way is a road made of solar panels. So it will replace asphalt roads and produce energy. Since the road way is produces its own energy so it can heat the road that there is no snow or ice.
