Wind, Solar and Geothermal
- These are examples of renewable energy resources
- Wind farms = lots of wind turbines in exposed places
- Each turbine has a generator = rotating blades turn generator = electricity produced
- No pollution
- Spoil the view as lots of wind turbines needed to replace non-renewable energy resources
- Can be very noisy
- Impossible to increase supply of energy when in high demand as wind may stop blowing
- Initial costs are high
- No fuel costs and minimal running costs
- No permanent damage to the landscape if turbines are removed
- Solar cells = generate current directly from sunlight . (ideal for watches and calculator batteries as
don’t require a lot of electricity)
- Often used in distant places
- No pollution (but lot of energy required to manufacture firstly)
- They are only reliable in the daylight
- Can’t increase energy supply when there is a high demand
- Like wind farms, initial costs are high but after running costs arelow and the energy is free
- Geothermal power= energy in underground thermal energy stores
- Possible in areas which havehot rocks near to the surface or in volcanic areas
- Source of energy = slow decay of radioactive elements deep inside the earth
- Free energy, which is reliable and do not damage the environment a huge amount
- They can directly generate electricity or heat/strong> buildings
- But, aren’t very many suitable locations
- Cost is high to build a power plant
