Transcript of HYDROPOWER
KEVIN RUIZ HYDROPOWER 1.Where does it come?
Solar energy heats water on the surface, causing it to evaporate
This water vapor condenses into clouds and falls back onto the surface as precipitation (rain, snow, etc.).
The water flows through rivers back into the oceans, where it can evaporate and begin the cycle over again. HYDROPOWER 2.how is it produced?
Most hydropower is produced at large facilities built by the federal government, such as the Grand Coulee Dam. The West has most of the largest dams, but there are numerous smaller facilities operating around the country. hydropower 3.how do we use in daily life?
Hydropower is the renewable energy source that produces the most electricity, for example in the United States. It accounted for 6% of total US electricity generation and 63% of generation from renewables in 2011. hydropower 4.WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF THE USE OF THIS SOURCE?
One way to harness wave energy is to bend or focus the waves into a narrow channel, increasing their power and size. A potential disadvantage of tidal power is the effect a tidal station can have on plants and animals in the estuaries. HYDROPOWER
