1 ENERGY By: Kaitlyn Nuclear Power Hydro Power Wind Power Solar Power BiomassGeothermal
2 HYDROPOWER Hydropower [water power] Renewable It goes through a dam and turns turbines to make energy.Dams cause animal habitat floods.3.3% is used throughout the U.S.
3 SOLAR ENERGY Solar power comes from the suns heat. We use solar panels that take the suns heat and turns into electricity..1% of US electricity comes from solar power.Takes away the suns heat.Is renewable.Is a lot of money
4 GEOTHERMAL Geothermal comes from inside the earth. Costs a lot of money to drill.The heat from below ground makes steam that turns turbines.___% of geothermal is used in US.It is not radio active.
5 WIND POWER It comes from the uneven heating of the earth. It is turned into electricity by a turbine.___% of wind is used in US.Wind is renewable.Disturbs wild life.Is a lot of noise.
6 NUCIEAR Energy inside an atom. The atom splits and makes electricity. ___% is used in US.
7 BIOMASS Made out of natural waste. It is burned to create electricity. 4% of us energy comes biomass.Very few refineriesRenewable
8 FOSSIL FULESIt comes from dead plants and animals that died millions of years ago.It is changed into electricity in a refinery.81% of us electricity comes from fossil fuels.It is nonrenewable and takes millions of years to form.We have a lot of it.
9 ENERGY TRANSFORMATION Many natural sources can be turned into electricity.We did two experiments about wind and solar power. We turned them into electricity.
