1: 1. Petroleum 2. Coal 3. Nuclear 4. Biomass 5. Geothermal 6. Hydropower

2: Petroleum

3: Petroleum comes from animal and plant remains that have changed to crude oil due to heat and pressure under the earth's surface. One of the fossil fuels.

4: Petroleum | Coal

5: Coal is similar to petroleum in that it is a fossil fuel, and is made in much the same way. Power plants burn coal to create steam.

6: Nuclear

7: Nuclear energy is released through nuclear fission, where atoms are split apart. Uranium is most commonly used because its atoms are easily split.

8: Biomass

9: Biomass is organic material that contains stored energy from the sun, and when it is burned can release chemical energy in the form of heat.

10: Geothermal

11: Geothermal energy is heat within the earth, which can be recovered as steam or hot water to heat houses and generate electricity.

12: Hydropower

13: Hydropower comes from kinetic energy from water, depending on fall or flow. The water pushes a turbine which produces electricity.
