Renewable Energy BY Lauren Connelly,
Rachael Lee, Chase Cook,
and Cade Heil Solar Nuclear Wind Geothermal Biomass Hydro Power Sources Pros
1. The sun shines
somewhere every day
2. It will never be used
up Pros
1. Nuclear energy emits relatively low amounts of carbon dioxide. This reduces greenhouse gas.
2. The technology is readily available. Pros
1. It's always available
and can't be used up
2. It doesn't create
greenhouse gas or air
pollutants Pros
1. Fairly clean way to
produce electricity
2. The machines are
highly efficient and produce
little to no pollution Pros
1. Geothermal Energy
generators use steam
or water as a “fuel”,
their power source can
be constantly renewed
2. It is one of the cleanest form of energy available. Pros
1. It helps to
eliminate some of
the waste we put into
the environment.
2. It can be used to
heat our homes, run
our cars, and produce
electricity. http://nationalatlas.gov/articles/people/a_energy.html

1. Solar panels are expensive to install
2. It is not constant Cons
1. There is a high risk
that it will create large
amounts of radioactive
2. The power plants have risks of malfunctioning, just like Chernobyl. Cons
1. Equipment is
2. Amount of wind
varies from day to
day Cons
1. The equipment is dangerous to many animals like fish
2. Water reservoirs occupy large
areas of land Cons
1. If it is not harvested
correctly, it can
damage ecosystems and consume water.
2. It produces air pollution, such as carbon monoxide
and nitrogen
oxide. Cons
1. Generators have a
relatively large start up cost.
2. These hydrothermal hot spots don’t occur everywhere. In the U.S. they are located in the Western States, Alaska, and Hawaii Using the sun's energy to make electricity. (solar panels) Cost: $1401.6/year Mission Statement
Our goal of this project is to create clean, cheap renewable energy to power Suwanee. Vision Statement
The overall goal of the mission is to add cheap and environmentally safe energy in Suwanee. We will do this by putting multiple different energy plants and dams to create renewable energy. This will be cheap and will also be environmentally friendly. This is the overall goal of our renewable energy project. Examples:
•Solar home heating
•Solar heating
•Solar lights
•Solar roof tiles Top Priorities
1.Clean energy
3.Energy amount
4.Environmental Impact Top Priorities
1.Clean energy
3.Energy amount
4.Environmental Impact Nuclear technology is designed to extract energy from atomic nuclei through controlled nuclear reactions. The only kind of extraction used today is fission. (power plants) Cost: $963.6/year Examples
•Nuclear fission reactor It is converting wind by wind turbines into wind energy. Wind power, however cannot always be easily accessed when the wind isn’t blowing. So there would be extra stores of wind energy (windmills) Examples
•Wind farms Cost: $289.08 to $876/year This generates hydro power
through the gravitational
falling of water (dams). Examples
•Large dam with spin-generators
•Water wheel
•Water turbine This is gas extracted from the earth. Not commonly used because it isn’t easily accessible. Examples
•Hot springs Cost: $788.4/year Cost: $876/year Biomass is dead biological
material can be used for fuel.
It is burned or digested to create
energy for fuel. Examples
•Agricultural waste
•Bio gas
•Energy crops
•Wood Cost: $1051.2/year
