what is energy conservation
What Is Energy Conservation?
  • Efforts made to reduce energy consumption
  • Types of energy: wind energy, hydropower, sun power, and biomass energy
  • Energy consumption causes climate changes, pollution, and a reduction in supply of resources like water
  • Conserve energy by using solar panels,

recycling, and reducing electricity usage

solar power
Solar Power
  • The conversion of sunlight into electricity
  • 5 types of energy
      • Passive solar heating
      • Active solar energy
      • Solar thermal energy like solar thermals
      • Photovoltaic solar power like photovoltaic panels
      • Concentrating solar power(CSP)
biomass energy
Biomass Energy
  • An organic matter that can be made in biofuels, chemicals, and other materials.
  • Good for the environment since it takes out the carbon in the air and doesn’t increase CO2 levels
  • Provide heat and electricity
  • Water power
  • Mostly used to generate energy
  • Convention hydroelectric is hydroelectric dams
  • Hydraulic power networks carry pressurized water and transmit mechanical power
  • Pumped-storage

hydroelectricity captures

the kinetic energy in rivers

or streams

wind energy
Wind Energy
  • Energy made from the wind
  • Plentiful, renewable energy
  • Produces no greenhouse gas emissions
  • Wind turbines make electrical power
  • Wind pumps are for water pumps and drainages
energy usage causes climate changes
Energy Usage Causes Climate Changes?
  • Energy consumption has been linked climate changes due to many electricity related machinery that produce a lot of carbon into the air
  • Power plants, vehicles, and factories
  • Power plants make up 36% of United State’s greenhouse gas emissions
  • Vehicles emit 5.3 lb of carbon

per gallon

  • Factories burn fossil fuel that

produces ozone

increase in energy pollution
Increase In Energy Pollution
  • Energy consumption makes electric and magnetic fields that cause pollution
  • Smog and haze cause difficult breathing problems like asthma
  • Pollution makes harmful

greenhouse gas emission

increase in e nergy pollution
Increase In Energy Pollution
  • Pollution harms fish
  • Excess heat energy and radiation leaks
  • Forces relocation of fish population
  • Changes migration patterns
why conserving energy helps conserve fossil fuels
Why Conserving Energy Helps Conserve Fossil Fuels
  • Fossil fuel is energy and are running low
  • Saving and consuming less fossil fuel will save more for future use
  • Less energy used makes more fossil fuel available
easy ways to help s ave e nergy
Easy Ways To Help Save Energy
  • Turning off the television, fan, and lights
  • Getting portable fans
  • Replacing old incandescent lights bulbs with CFLs
  • Sealing off unused areas can reduce or eliminate heating and cooling in these spaces
