  • Energy Resource: Tar Sands and Nuclear Energy

    1000 Words  | 4 Pages

    from tar sands was very expensive, technologically difficult and complex. Advancement in technology and high price of oil-above $80 a barrel has made it possible to extract oil with profit. Although this causes pollution and ridding of nonrenewable resources it is helping the economy. (Oil Shale and Tar Sands Program, 2012) Tar sands are naturally occurring mineral bed found within the earth. It’s formed from water, sand, and bitumen coal which is formed from pressure of dead plants underground for a

  • Alternative Energy Resources

    1101 Words  | 5 Pages

    The energy that is used today comes from fossil fuels, which is a nonrenewable limited resource that will eventually be used up. Alternative energy sources such as solar, hydroelectric, geothermal and wind energies can be used, to conserve the planets limited natural resources. Alternative energy is the use of another energy without the burning of fossil fuels and break up on atoms. Solar energy can be used to operate cars and provide electricity for homes and businesses. Hydroelectric energy can

  • Energy Resource Paper

    1426 Words  | 6 Pages

    Everyday we use energy; whether it’s walking, driving a car or even turning on the lights. but how do we get our energy? We get energy from fossil fuel. Most fossil fuels are nonrenewable and we use so much every day that one day we are going to run out. What are we going to do then? We also have alternative energy sources. Some are generated through the wind or even by falling water. We need to conserve our sources now, renewable and nonrenewable, there are many simple ways to do this. There are

  • Alternative Energy Resource: Biomass

    634 Words  | 3 Pages

    biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms. In the context of biomass for energy this is often used to mean plant based materials, but biomass can equally apply to both animal and vegetable derived material. Biomass is considered to be one of the key renewable resources of the future at both small and large scale levels. It already supplies fourteen percent of the world’s primary energy consumption. Growing Biomass is a rural, labor-intensive activity, and can, therefore, create

  • The Benefits of Renewable Energy Resources

    1838 Words  | 8 Pages

    "When it comes to renewable energy, there's no reason America should settle for second best" (Martin Heinrich). The United States is to do what is best for the country and should never settle for second best because second best will eventually become more costly than the first best. Solar power, hydropower, nuclear power, wind power, and biomass power are all renewable energy resources. They come from resources that are naturally replenished from sunlight, wind, rain, and plant waste and are used

  • Future Energy Resources: Hydropower

    1495 Words  | 6 Pages

    Future Energy Resources: hydropower Hydropower is a renewable energy source that transforms the kinetic energy in running water into usable electricity. The energy generated from hydropower plants can be used to power homes, businesses and factories. Globally the use of hydropower has increased rapidly between the years 2003 and 2009, and has continued to increase from 2009 to 2010. By 2010 use of hydropower reached a record of 3427 terawatt -hours and about 16.1% of global electricity. This is

  • Solar Energy: The Ultimate Renewable Energy Resource

    2765 Words  | 12 Pages

    fossil fuels as our main energy source has two drawbacks: their inevitable depletion and the pollution associated with combustion. These two drawbacks in addition to the growing concern of global warming has pushed for the development of more sustainable sources of energy, namely solar energy and its derivatives (i.e. wind power). Solar energy is appealing for its potential to meet all our demands, while proving to be a pollution free resource.(Bohn, 2009) Solar energy originates from the thermonuclear

  • Renewable Energy Resources and their Limitations

    2057 Words  | 9 Pages

    from the earliest days from simple to sophisticated. The Present era is the era where energy is the basic resource which is essential for living. The present age can easily be termed as Fossil Fuel Age (Hogan,1982) because 93% of the total world’s energy comprised of oil, coal and natural gas, this is surprising because only a century and a half ago the figures were reverse. Fossil fuel provides only 5% of energy while the animals and humans supplied 94% of it (Grubb et. al., 2006). This extensive

  • Renewable and Nonrewable Energy Resources

    1506 Words  | 7 Pages

    Nonrewable Energy Resources Energy is used as part of everyday lives and can be used in one form or another. Energy is about doing work and it is all around us. Animals need energy to live and machines need energy to work. Energy exists in many forms, such as: - Light - Heat - Electrical - Mechanical - Atomic - Chemical-etc. There are different types of energy resources. They go into two groups, which are Non-renewable and Renewable. NON-RENEWABLE ENERGY RESOURCES ==============================
