Why I choose renewable energy ?


It is because it is a very attention topic and I
will learn Energy in the science textbook this
year.
What is renewable energy ?
It can use to change to energy again and
again. Sunlight, water and wind can change
into energy.
What can it do?

It can obtain to the limited resources and it is


good to the Earth.

Solar energy
What is it?
Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the sun
harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies
such as solar heating, solar photovoltaic, solar thermal
energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis.

What is the benefits?


Solar energy is not only sustainable, it is renewable and
this means that we will never run out of it. It is about as
natural a source of power as it is possible to generate
electricity.
The creation of solar energy requires little maintenance.
Once the solar panels have been installed and are working
at maximum efficiency there is only a small amount of
maintenance required each year to ensure they are in
working order.
They are a silent producer of energy. There is absolutely
no noise made from photovoltaic panels as they convert
sunlight into usable electricity.
There are continual advancements in solar panel

technology which are increasing the efficiency and


lowering the cost of production, thus making it even more
cost effective.
During operation solar electricity power plants produce
zero emissions.

Hydropower

P.3

What is it?
Hydropower is power derived from the energy of falling
water and running water, which may be harnessed for
useful purposes. Since ancient times, hydropower from
many kinds of watermills has been used for irrigation and
the operation of various mechanical devices.
Since the early 20th century, the term has been used
almost exclusively in conjunction with the modern
development of hydroelectric power, which allowed use of
distant energy sources. Another method used to transmit
energy is by using a trompe, which produces compressed
air from falling water. Compressed air could then be piped
to power other machinery at a distance from the waterfall.
Hydro power is a renewable energy source.
Water's power is manifested in hydrology, by the forces of
water on the riverbed and banks of a river. When a river is
in flood, it is at its most powerful, and moves the greatest
amount of sediment. This higher force results in the
removal of sediment and other material from the riverbed

and banks of the river, locally causing erosion, transport


and, with lower flow, sedimentation downstream.
What is the benefits?
Hydropower is fueled by water, so it's a clean fuel source,
meaning it won't pollute the air like power plants that burn
fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas.
Hydroelectric power is a domestic source of energy,
allowing each state to produce their own energy without
being reliant on international fuel sources.
The energy generated through hydropower relies on the
water cycle, which is driven by the sun, making it a
renewable power source, making it a more reliable and
affordable source than fossil fuels that are rapidly being
depleted.
Impoundment hydropower creates reservoirs that offer a
variety of recreational opportunities, notably fishing,
swimming, and boating. Most water power installations are
required to provide some public access to the reservoir to
allow the public to take advantage of these opportunities.

P.4

Feeling
I think renewable energy is good to us and the
Earth. It may change the bad effect of Earth and
we can have more energy to use. I like the
Hydropower most because we can use it every
moment. And it just like the sunlight and wind we
can find them everywhere.
