Energy Resources Notes
2
Nonrenewable resources
  • A natural resource that is not replaced as it is
    used
  • May take millions of years to form
  • Includes oil, coal, natural gas, and nuclear
    energy

3
Oil
  • A type of fossil fuel that is a thick black
    liquid
  • Formed millions of years ago
  • Most is found underground

4
Coal
  • A type of fossil fuel that is in solid form
  • Been used for thousands of years
  • Used to fuel electric power plants
  • Used to burn for heat.

5
Natural Gas
  • A type of fossil fuel
  • A mixture of methane and other gases
  • Found underground

6
Nuclear Energy
  • Energy converted during nuclear reactions
  • Comes from energy stored in the nucleus of atoms

7
Renewable Resources
  • A source that is naturally replaced in a short
    amount of time or through a cycle
  • Examples biomass, hydropower, and hydrogen

8
Biomass
  • Living or formerly living material
  • Can be made into fuel

9
Hydropower
  • Power that is produced by flowing water moving
    over a waterfall or dam
  • The most widely used source of renewable energy

10
Hydrogen Gas
  • It is obtained from water breaking the H O
    bonds.
  • A fuel that burns cleanly, with water as the
    byproduct

11
Perpetual (Inexhaustible) Resources
  • A resource that exists in such a large supply
    that it is considered limitless
  • Includes solar power, wind power, and geothermal
    energy

12
Solar Power
  • Energy from the sun
  • The source of most renewable energy sources
  • Does not cause pollution

13
Wind Power
  • Used to turn a turbine and generate electricity
  • Fastest-growing energy source
  • Does not cause pollution

14
Geothermal Energy
  • Occurs when magma heats underground water
  • Steam and hot water are used to generate
    electricity
