Important Details

Hydropower

Natural Gas

  • Human use falling water to produce electricity.
  • Its renewable because water constantly cycles from water sources, to air, to land, and back.
  • It has been used for thousands of years.
  • It is used in some gases for cars.
  • It’s a nonrenewable energy source because it is formed from the remains of organisms.
  • It was found deep in the earths surface in the 1800s.
how is this energy source used in present day

Hydropower

Natural Gas

  • Dams
  • Water wheels
  • Reservoirs
  • Falling water
  • Power plants
  • Cooking and Heating
  • Most Households
  • Oil and Gas
  • Pipeline Fuel
  • Vehicle Fuel

Pros

Hydropower

Natural Gas

  • Its inexpensive and causes little pollution.
  • The time for a Hydropower station to shut down and restart is way shorter.
  • Hydropower is undoubtedly the most widely used form of renewable energy.
  • The installation can be beneficial for fish breeding.
  • The stations generate energy for years.
  • Causes less air pollution than oil.
  • Its easy to transport.
  • It is a cleaner burning energy source.
  • Its becoming increasingly popular.
  • Its about 40% less pollutant than other fossil fuels.

Cons

Hydropower

Natural Gas

  • It could reduce the demand for fossil fuels.
  • Often destroys other wildlife resources like forests.
  • The need for a large enough reservoir is limited.
  • There is always a risk that the reservoir could give away at the event of an unexpected heavy rainfall.
  • Droughts can have a severe adverse impact on hydropower generation.
  • Natural gas is very flammable.
  • It can lead to fires or deadly explosions.
  • Transportation is easy but, expensive.
  • Its a limited source.
  • It takes miles of pipeline to transport.
