A poster that displays and examines renewable and energy sources, including wind energy, hydro energy and solar energy.
Non-polluting and inexhaustible.
Wind power involves converting wind energy into electricity by using wind turbines. The wind rotates the blades of the wind turbine, which is connected to an electrical generator. The electrical generator converts the motion (kinetic energy) of the spinning turbine into electricity.
Hydro systems convert the flow of water into electrical energy. Like wind turbines, hydro systems rely on submerged turbines that are rotated by the flow of water. An electrical generator converts the motion (kinetic energy) of the spinning turbine into electricity.
Solar power is clean electricity created from sunlight or heat from the sun. Solar energy is primarily captured by solar photovoltaic or solar thermal systems. Solar photovoltaic panels convert solar energy into electricity, while solar thermal systems can be used to heat water.
Did you know that there are other sources of renewable energy? These sources include wave energy, geothermal energy and biofuels.
