2: Bioenergy- energy derived from any organic matter available on a renewable basis, including crops and trees, agricultural crop wastes, wood wastes, as well as animal and other wastes
3: Biomass gives the United States tremendous opportunities for use as domestic and sustainable resources to provide our fuel and power.
4: Hydrogen Energy- a clean energy carrier, like electricity, that is made up from diverse resources such as renewable energy, nuclear energy, and fossil energy.
5: In the long term hydrogen will do both of the following: -reduce dependence on foreign oil -reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and criteria pollutants
6: Nuclear Energy- Nuclear energy is energy that can be produced in 2 different ways: -nuclear fission: nuclei are split to release energy -nuclear fusion: nuclei are combined to release energy
7: One advantage of using nuclear energy is that nuclear power plants need less fuel than power plants that are run on fossil fuels. Also one ton of uranium produces more energy than, several million tons of coal or several million tons of oil.
8: Solar Energy- Solar energy is energy that reaches earth from the sun in the form of rays. It can be converted into other forms of energy such as heat and electricity
9: Solar energy is capable of providing many times the total current energy demand but the problem is that it is not available at all times.
10: Wind Energy- a renewable energy source because the wind will blow as long as the sun shines
11: Like old fashioned windmills, today's wind machines, turbines, collect the wind's energy using blades.
12: Geothermal Energy- It is the heat from the earth.
13: Resources of geothermal energy range from shallow ground to down even deeper to extremely high temperatures of magma.
