FC: Sources of Energy | Joseph Medina

1: Wind Energy Solar Power HydroPower Nuclear Energy Geothermal Fossil Fuels

2: Wind Energy

3: The use of rotating turbines (by the wind), to convert kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical or electrical energy that can be used for power.

5: Even some older windmills used the power of wind to grind, crush and press.

6: Energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy, usually through the use of solar panels. | Solar Power

7: ]Two techniques are through photovoltaic panels and...

8: ...solar thermal collectors, which store heat from the sun.

10: HydroPower | The harnessing of the power in moving or falling water to turn turbines, or wheels.

11: This power is often contained by the use of dams. The turbines within the dam are rotated by the water and a generator transforms this into electricity

13: Water was/is also used to turn waterwheels which provide mechanical energy for sawmills, textile mills, etc.

14: The use of controlled nuclear reactions (usually nuclear fission), to heat water into steam to generate electricity. | Nuclear Energy

18: Geothermal | The harnessing of the power the heat coming from the earth. Radioactive decay of minerals, volcanic activity and solar energy absorbed at the surface.

20: Previously, geothermal plants were limited to places near fault lines.

22: Fossil Fuels | Formed from the fossilized remains of dead plants and animals exposed to heat and pressure from the earths crust for hundreds of millions of years.

25: Fossil fuels also are components of coal, petroleum, and natural gas.
