1 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power In this lesson you can score points in an energy quiz…. (1 point for each correct answer) Is that what I get from eating chocolate? Do you know how many types of renewable energy there are?

2 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power 1.What are these places? 2.What are they producing? 3.What kind of fuel are they using? 4.What are the problems with producing power this way? PART 1 What can you remember? power stations Coal fired power station ABC Gas fired power station Nuclear power station electricity A. coal B. gas C. uranium Fossil fuels: produce carbon dioxide causing climate change and they will run out. Nuclear: produces radioactive waste.

3 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power PART 2 1.We need to use sources of energy that are more s _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. 2. To do this we can use r _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ energy. 3. What sources of energy won’t run out or cause pollution? u s t a i n a b l e e n e w a b l e windSun waterplants (biomass)

4 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power 1.What are these? 2.What do they do? 3.Why are they here? PART 3 WIND Wind turbines Produce electricity from the wind Because it is windy

5 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power We can get energy from the movement of water as 1. it flows down a g _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 2. it moves up and down in w_ _ _ _ 3. it flows in and out with the t_ _ _ PART 4 WATER r a d i e n t a v e s i d e

6 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power 1. What is the structure in the photograph called? 2. In the diagram, what is the name of part A? 3. When might it be difficult to make electricity? PART 5 HYDRO ELECTRIC POWER (gradient) A dam Turbine Drought or low rainfall pylon dam reservoir A

7 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power Wind The building contains a turbine that makes electricity using the power of the movement of waves. PART 6 WAVE POWER What is the force that acts on water to create waves?

8 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power Here is a picture of another power source at sea. PART 7 TIDAL POWER Tidal currents What is causing these turbines to turn?

9 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power This is renewable energy from solar power. 1.What are the panels on these roofs producing? 2.Which direction should the panels face? PART 8 Sun electricity towards the Sun (south)

10 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power The Sun is not generating electricity here but it is still providing useful energy. Do you know what it is doing in each picture? 3. The Sun is heating the house in A by warming the c _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. This is known as passive solar heating. 4. In B the Sun is heating w _ _ _ _. This is known as a solar thermal collector. AB onservatory ater

11 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power 1. What do these pictures show? 2. How can cutting down trees be renewable energy? PART 9 PLANT (BIOMASS) Willow trees growing The trees will re-grow or new trees can be planted Trees cut and shredded Wood pellets burnt in boilers to produce heat AB C

12 What size is your carbon footprint? There’s more to renewable energy than wind power So how well did you do? good very good 26+ excellent This PowerPoint and lesson are based on work by Ian Mitchell, The Green Egg Company, developed & edited by Amie Andrews for TLCP and Ali Ross, Sundog Energy.
