Renewable energy resources are being developed because we are running out of fossil fuels at an exponential rate.

The wind is produced as a result of giant convection currents in the Earth’s atmosphere, which are driven by heat energy from the sun. Wind turbines use the wind to drive turbines directly. The blades are connected to a housing, which contains gears linked to a generator. As the wind blows, it transfers some of its kinetic energy to the blades, which turn and drive the generator. The advantages are that there are no fuel costs and no harmful pollutant gases are produced. However, they depend on wind, if there is no wind, there’s no electricity.

Like the wind, water can be used to drive turbines directly. Wave machines use the kinetic energy in this movement to drive electricity generators. Another way of using the water is to build a tidal barrage over a river estuary to make use of the kinetic energy in the moving water. The barrage contains electricity generators, which are driven by the water rushing through tubes in the barrage. Hydroelectric power stations are dams built across a river valley. The water high up behind the dam contains gravitational potential energy. This is transferred to kinetic energy as the water rushes down through tubes inside the dam. The moving water drives electrical generators, which may be built inside the dam. Water produced energy is good because no harmful polluting gases are produced and tidal barrages and hydroelectric power stations are very reliable and can be easily switched on. However, tidal barrages destroy the habitat of estuary species and hydroelectricity dams flood farmland and push people from their homes.

    Expect lower expenses with your home’s energy consumption in the future with generating power method “boma fetching unique” (Google it). Its an excellent place to begin saving cash by making some small adjustments in your home. You can be a person who wants to save the environment or a family man wanting to save on bills, this is certainly among the best methods you`ll have.

    it is a good video

    We are finally building our home overlooking a small vineyard we've designed and now are bound to it. Full of clear understanding and guidance *[Awesome Plan Here >>> ]

    Hi Ben

  10. Donald Burns says:

    I am taking a course at the community college and use this book which is really excellent.If you are getting to Solar Energy, this [link here :: ] book is a must.

    Fucking sick of all these adverts all I want to do is fucking learn physics I swear I've watched more adverts than actual videos

  12. Noah Barrionuevo says:

    Good job I enjoy your voice and drawings

  13. Guillermo Bautista Imedio says:

    the best video of all youtube like for this men

    love your video.. very informative a good educational material for energy topic..

  17. Louis Reeds says:

    You talk way to fast.

  18. Ian Prado says:

    Thorium reactors can power cities on cloudy, windless days.

    Wind and Solar are not economically viable that is why they are subsidized with tax payer funds unless there's a major jump in technology. Geothermal and hydro are the most promising. and natural gas is a renewable in the form of methane. The carbon pollution from natural gas is very easily converted to a organic form by plants. Carbon pollution from that year will be neutralized by ocean plankton up to 20x estimated by some botanist and marine biologist more carbon then world produces today.

    Like it doodleeeeeee

  21. reduceelectricusage says:

    Geothermal, wind, sun, wave, biomass.. are just some example of clean energy source…

  22. Internet Opportunities Unlimited says:

    Great stuff! Nice work. The public really needs to see more of this. Have you heard anything about a new system called Optimal Future Energy Deployment (it should be on Google)? I’ve heard some interesting things about it and my brother got some amazing results. I’ve also been searching for solutions to the problem of wind turbines killing birds and bats. Ultrasonic acoustics looks like a possible answer to saving bats, but I haven’t read anything lately about the best way to keep birds away from wind turbines. Have you heard anything?

    Solar, Wind, Tidal, Wave, and Geothermal energy.

    love this, it's like a very simple version of minute physics. i find minute physics to complicated. but yours is so much easier
