Transcript of Renewable Energy

A Presentation by Group 5 Renewable Energy What is Renewable Energy? natural energy unlimited supply Renewable Energy vs. Alternative Energy renewable = natural source alternative = any source Benefits of Renewable Energy jobs and economy environmental benefits stability Chemistry Behind Renewable Energy Solar Energy energy derived from the sun = solar radiation solar powered electrical generation
relies on photovoltaics and heat engines *photovaltaics (PV) - method of generating electrical power
-converts solar radiation into direct current electricity
-uses semiconductors that exhibit the photovaltaic effect In the Philippines... CEPALCO’S 1MWP PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANT -Cagayan de Oro -6,500 solar panels and set on a 2 hectares of land -ability to supply the energy requirement of not less than 900 CEPALCO residential consumers -capacity to produce not less than 14,000,000 kWh electricity per year Advantages Philippines’ location and being tropical
inexhaustible fuel source
no pollution
often an excellent supplement to other renewable sources
versatile Disadvantages very diffuse source = low energy production
-large number of solar panels
- large land areas
limited to only areas with lots of sunlight Wind Energy conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy wind turbine converts kinetic energy from the wind mounted on a tower to capture the most energy catch the wind's energy with their propeller-like blades In the Philippines... WIND FARM IN BANGUI, ILOCOS NORTE perfect geography coast faces South China Sea 30 wind mill units along the entire stretch of the coast supports about 40 percent of the power needed by Ilocos Norte hardly emit greenhouse gases and are generally safe for the other ecosystems that exist within the area Advantages natural resources
-the Philippines' potential is attributed to its location in the Asia-Pacific monsoon belt technology situation support industry/infrastructure Disadvantages high cost long time to cover initial investment Hydroelectric Power flowing water creates energy common types: dam on a river to store water in a reservoir micro hydro systems - used in water rich areas as a remote-area power supply (RAPS) run-of-the-river hydroelectricity systems -harness energy without large reservoirs In the Philippines... multipurpose hydroelectric power system strategy in designing SAN ROQUE DAM capacity of 85 MW surplus power that reduces dependence on imported fuel oil
lowers the variable operating expenses of other power plants offers substantial power benefits Advantages the Philippines is rich in bodies of water
inexhaustible fuel source
minimal environmental impact
viable source--relatively useful levels of energy production
can be used throughout the world Disadvantages smaller models depend on availability of fast flowing streams or rivers
Run-of-the-River plants can impact the mobility of fish and other river life. Bioenergy comes from any fuel that is derived from biomass *biomass - recently living organisms or their metabolic byproducts most widely used form of renewable energy Biodegradable Waste Wet Wastes - feedlots, food processing Methane Gas Agricultural products and by products *by-product- something produced in the making of something else Household Garbage Cellulose and lignin Electricity! burn Sugar breakdown, CO2, heat and steam Photosynthesis Process Advantages reduces or eliminates nearly all forms of air pollution can provide households with incomes, livelihood activities and employment very accessible anywhere in the world Disadvantages greenhouse gases produced by burning extra costs of installing technology to process and recycle wastes expensive to collect, harvest and store raw materials large scale crop production will use vast areas of land and water, representing major problems Hydrogen Examples water
other renewable energy and renewably generated electricity simplest element (1 proton 1 electron)
most plentiful element in the world
always combines with other elements
found in many organic compounds
high in energy hydrogen is separated reforming, biomass gasification and electrolysis Process fuel cell - changes the chemical energy of a fuel (as
hydrogen) into electrical energy
- will produce electricity as long as fuel (hydrogen) is supplied, never losing its charge
- can be used as a source of heat and electricity for buildings, and as an electrical power source for electric motors propelling vehicles
- operate best on pure hydrogen Advantages can be transported to places where it is needed
can someday be like electricity, an important energy carrier
can be conveniently stored
produces almost no pollution
very abundant on earth Disadvantages expensive cost Geothermal Energy heat from the earth
clean and sustainable
may come from shallow ground, hot water or hot rock, or even in magma deep down the earth Examples geysers
hot springs
geothermal heat pumps geothermal heat pump system consists of a heat pump, an air delivery system (ductwork), and a heat exchanger-a system of pipes buried in the shallow ground near the building Advantages reduces reliance on fossil fuels
does not create any pollution
has been used at home, work place, etc. Disadvantages not widespread source of energy
high installation cost
can run out of steam
may release harmful gases
cannot easily be transported Ocean Energy energy derived in any manner from the vast body of salt water
produces thermal energy and mechanical energy Types of Electricity Conversion closed cycle - uses ocean's surface water to vaporized working fluid, which expands and turns turbine
open cycle - boils the seawater
hybrid a. thermal energy - from sun's heat
b. mechanical energy - driven by moons and winds (tides
and waves)
- involves mechanical devices A barrage (dam) is typically used to convert tidal energy into electricity by forcing the water through turbines, activating a generator. Advantages eco-friendly
can be transformed into electricity
meets the energy demand of the growing population and industries
does not cost much compared to technologies used to produce other renewable energy Disadvantages may lead to the displacement of wildlife habitat
barrage system requires salt resistant parts and high maintenance
can only be used where there is suitable tidal flow or wave motion
disrupts fish migration, kills fish and thus, disrupts ecosystem Current State of RE in the Philippines Top 5 Countries Using RE Other Countries Using Renewable Energy 5.
