Transcript of Flow Resources
Flow resources are important because they offer clean and constant alternatives to non-renewable fuels, such as coal, oil and natural gas.
Examples of Flow Resources
How do we use flow resources in our daily lives?
We use flow resources a lot in our daily lives but you just don't notice it. Together, the U.S. and Canadian hydroelectric power stations on both sides of the border at Niagara Falls can produce about 4.6 gigawatts of electricity. That's the largest generating capacity in a single location anywhere in North America.
What makes a natural resource a flow resources?
You might be wondering why water, wind and solar energies qualify as flow resources and not renewable resources. This is because for renewable resources to come back, we need to do something, but flow resources come back without us having to do anything.

Flow resources are the breezes that cool you,
the sun that warms you, and the moving water that
refreshes you. They are all natural resources. They are called
Flow Resources because they do not remain in the same
location. The definition of a flow resource is a resource that has the ability to be used and replenished at the same time. Flow Resources move around so much because of
natural actions in our physical environment. Examples like......

Hydroelectricity is the term referring to electricity generated by hydropower; the production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy. Also hydroelectricity is a plentiful source of energy. By harnessing the power of running water using turbines, we can power generators, which give us energy.
Biomass energy is energy from the sun captured in organic materials derived from plants or animals. Sources of biomass include:
Other industrial waste
Tidal energy is produced through the use of tidal energy generators. These large underwater turbines are placed in areas with high tidal movements, and are designed to capture the kinetic motion of the ebbing and surging of ocean tides in order to produce electricity. Tidal power has great potential for future power and electricity generation because of the massive size of the oceans.
