Alternative Energy Source
Refers to producing energy from the internal heat of the earth.
Can also be used to produce electrical heat
The most volcanically and tectonically active regions of the world
Reliable and consistent
Seismic sensing test well drilling confirmation testing
Biomass conversion process
anaerobic digestion or biodigestion
Biomass is the primary source of energy
Moves up a small percentage of worlds use
For approximately 2.5billion people, it remains the primary source of energy for cooking and heating.
Availability of resources , technology and economic viability are all drivers or biomass use
The environmental benefits and costs are highly contextual depending on the technology and feedstocks used.
Power from moving water
Produced using turbines and generators
Dams and run of river
Dams have more controlled
Most used for public energy production.
Cost competitive form of electricity
Reliable , helps flood control, and. Water supply for communities.
Negative impact on fish habitats,
people may have to move from riverside home.
Power generated from moving wind
Wind doesn’t always blow
Different speeds due to location,
season, and the surrounding structures
Cost more than traditional energy
Cost is decreasing
Very clean energy
Not always available at night time
