Renewable energy by Mind Map: Renewable energy

1. Solar energy

1.1. The energy is generated from the sun’s heat or sunlight. This solar power is converted into electricity.

2. What is?

2.1. Renewable energy is produced by natural resources. Like solar, wind, hydro geothermal and biomass.

3. Benefits

3.1. *Renewable energy can decrase pollution. This type of energy is alternative and use natural sources of energy.

3.2. *It have a low environmental impact

3.3. *Is an alternative energy: doesn't harm the environment.

3.4. *Is a reliable source of power.

4. Dowsites

4.1. *It's difficult to regenerate power of the same large scale as fossil fuels.

4.2. *The energy could be intermittent,

4.3. *This energy dosen't have the same power as fossil fuels.

5. Other energy

5.1. Fossil fuels

5.1.1. Hydrocarbons, primarily coal, fuel oil or natural gas, formed from the remains of dead plants and animals.

5.1.1.1. Is a power source of energy, but it hurts the environment.

6. Types of renewable energy

6.1. Hydropower

6.1.1. Uses the force or energy of moving water to generate power.

6.2. Bioenergy

6.2.1. Is derived from biomass to generate electricity and heat, or to produce liquid fuels for transport.

6.2.1.1. Biomass

6.2.1.1.1. Renewable organic matter.

6.3. Geothermal

6.3.1. Is stored as heat in the earth.The heat is generated by the natural decay over millions of years of radiogenic elements.

6.4. Ocean energy

6.4.1. Is a term used to describe all forms of renewable energy derived from the sea. This energy could be obtain by different ways.

6.5. Hybrid/enabling technologies

6.5.1. Integrates a renewable energy generation technology with other energy generation systems, such as Solar with gas, or wind.

6.6. Wind energy

6.6.1. Generated by converting wind currents into other forms of energy using wind turbines.
