energy where would we be without it
Energy: Where Would We Be Without It?
  • No heat in our homes
  • No electricity
  • No fuels for cars, trucks, buses and planes
  • No products made from oil and gas
    • Backpacks
    • Toys
    • Glasses
    • Clothing

NO

non renewable and renewable
Non-Renewable and Renewable
  • Non-renewable
    • Energy sources that are NOT replaced by nature as quickly as they are used.

Examples: oil, gas, coal (fossil fuels) and

nuclear energy

  • Renewable
    • Energy sources that are easily and quickly replaced by nature.
    • Examples: hydropower, solar, wind, geothermal biomass
nuclear energy
Nuclear Energy
  • Nuclear energy is energy that comes from the nucleus of a U-235 atom. U-235 is split through fission and it releases energy. Uranium is mined from the ground.
where are the fossils in fossil fuels
Where Are the “Fossils” In Fossil Fuels?

Fossil fuels were formed from decayed organisms a long time ago under tremendous pressure.

where are the fossils in fossil fuels1
Where Are the “Fossils” In Fossil Fuels?

Fossil fuels are the remains of once living organisms that have been buried and compressed under many layers of sediment.

Fossil fuels were forming way before dinosaurs lived

Coal
  • Coalis a solid fossil fuel formed from dead PLANT matter. Coal is removed from Earth through mining.
petroleum oil
Petroleum (Oil)
  • Petroleum or crude oil is a liquid fossil fuel formed from dead plants AND animals. Petroleum must be pumped up from underground with drill rigs. Petroleum has to be refined before it can be used.
natural gas
Natural Gas
  • Natural gas is a gaseous fossil fuel. Natural gas forms on top of petroleum and is collected by drilling wells.
hydroelectric power
Hydroelectric Power

Hydroelectric energy is energy that comes from moving water to create electricity.

wind energy
Wind Energy

Wind energy is energy from moving air to create electricity.

solar energy
Solar Energy

Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun. Solar energy can be used create heat OR to create electricity.

biomass
Biomass

Biomassis organic material made from plants and animals. Biomass contains stored energy from the sun.

geothermal energy
Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is heat from within the Earth. The heat as steam or hot water and is used heat buildings or generate electricity.
