What is Alternative Energy?


  • Solar energy is powered by the sun. It is also a renewable source of energy.

  • Solar panels use this energy to create electricity.-

Advantages of solar energy
Advantages of Solar Energy

  • No pollution

  • Renewable

  • All purpose : heating, cooking, and lighting.

Disadvantages of solar energy
Disadvantages of Solar Energy

  • If there is no sun on a cloudy day, then there is no power.

  • Solar stations are very expensive.

Alternative energy

  • Wind energy is wind. This is also a renewable source of energy.

  • Wind turbines are used to convert this energy into electricity.-

Advantages of wind energy
Advantages of Wind Energy

  • No pollution.

  • Renewable.

  • Stations can be made off shore as well as on land.

Disadvantages of wind energy
Disadvantages of Wind Energy

  • If there is no wind then there is no power

  • Turbines are very expensive


  • Geothermal energy is basically the heat from the earth.

  • It is mostly hot rocks under the ground that produce steam that powers turbines that creates electricity.


Advantages of geothermal energy
Advantages of Geothermal Energy

  • If used in the correct way then there is no pollution

  • Stations are self sufficient energy wise

  • The stations do not harm landscape as the stations are very small

Disadvantages of geothermal energy
Disadvantages of Geothermal Energy

  • If used in the incorrect way then can leave areas polluted as it may release harmful gases

  • Stations are prone to running out of steam
