Energy Resources Essential Question: How do energy resources affect the environment?
Vocabulary Conservation Nonrenewable Fossil fuel Pollution Global warming Renewable Solar energy Wind energy Hydropower Biomass Geothermal energy
Concept Types of energy sources
Conservation Careful use and management of resources. Examples: ▫Insulating walls; ▫Constant thermostat temp; ▫Less air conditioning. Save / stewardship
Nonrenewable Used much faster than it can be replaced. (Can not be replaced in our life time.)
Fossil Fuel Formed over millions of years from the decayed remains of ancient plants and animals. Examples: coal; petroleum/oil; natural gas.
Pollution Releasing unwanted materials into the environment through burning fossil fuels.
Global Warming Rising average temperatures around the world. Fossil fuels release CO2 into atmosphere. Due to use of machines powered by fossil fuels.
Renewable Can be replaced as it is used or can not be used up.
Solar Energy Energy from the sun. Uses: Solar panels; solar cells; solar batteries. Advantage: no pollution. Disadvantage: expensive.
Wind Energy Energy of moving air. Uses: windmills or turbines. Advantage: no pollution. Disadvantage: noisy, danger to wildlife.
Hydropower Energy of moving water. Uses: power plants to produce electricity. Advantage: no pollution. Disadvantage: only in areas with large river; creates reservoirs – floods nearby areas.
Biomass Material from living things is used as an energy source. Uses: burning wood & fermenting crops (ethanol.) Advantage: reduces gasoline use. Disadvantage: releases CO2 & uses food source.
Geothermal Energy Heat energy from inside Earth. Uses: Heat buildings; produce electricity. Disadvantage: Requires location over volcanically active ground.
Energy Resources Renewable and Non Renewable.
Natural Resources Vocabulary
What are some renewable energy resources?
NONRENEWABLE AND RENEWABLE RESOURCES
NONRENEWABLE AND RENEWABLE RESOURCES. HMMMM.... Energy resources can be classified a renewable or nonrenewable What do you think nonrenewable resources.
Alternative Energy. Fossil Fuels Fossil fuels are a very efficient way to produce energy! However… – Burning Fossil fuels creates POLLUTION. – Coal mining.

1. _____nonrenewable resources that form in Earth’s crust over millions of years from the buried remains of once living organisms. Ex coal (natural resources)
Unit 3 Lesson 3: Nonrenewable Resources Lesson 4: Renewable Resources
Renewable energy resources are the sources that can be replaced / generated at the same rate that they are being utilised.
