2: Dutch Windmills | Wind Energy | Nations fastest growing source of energy. This energy is clean, domesticated, and innovated. It is a good competitor to fossil fuels.
3: Uses windmills to collect energy from natural air flowing through atmosphere. Works alongside electric energy to give a stable source of energy. | Wind Energy
4: Solar Energy
5: The solar panel cells absorb the heat energy from the rays of the sun and converts it to electricity. This electricity can power everything from a hand watch to a central power tower. | Solar energy is a clean way to reduce greenhouse gases and increase the value of a country's economy.
6: HydroPower uses the resources of water to move a turbine which converts the energy into electricity that people can use. This is a clean, safe, and energy efficient way to produce electricity.
9: Coal is a popular fossil fuel used for a lot of things, including producing electricity and fire. Using this fossil fuel releases greenhouse gases that pollute the atmosphere and destroy the environment. Researchers are experimenting methods to prevent these gases from escaping into the atmosphere.
10: Geothermal Energy
11: Geothermal energy consists of energy given off from a hot substance produced by the earth, including hot water on the surface of the earth, hot rocks inside the earths crust, and hot magma deeper inside the earth's crust. This energy source is a clean and renewable way to produce energy for a country.
13: Oil is a very popular source of energy. Supplying around 40% of all energy needs, it is very useful for transportation by car, train, airplane, etc. The consumption of this energy releases harmful gases into the environment. Since this is a nonrenewable recourse and we have already used a great supply of it, prices for this energy source are rising. | Countries are making an effort to lessen the consumption of oil by creating "green" or "more natural" products.
