Unit 4C – “Renewable Forms of Energy”

Product Thumb: 

This series of four panels presents an overview of renewable forms of energy that begins by distinguishing between fossil fuels and renewable sources that can be replenished in a relatively short period of time. Text further explores the challenges that prevent us from using renewables exclusively such as intermittency, storage, and geographic constraints.

Subsequent text and images briefly describe solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, wave energy/tidal energy, biofuels, and hydrogen and other future energy sources.  A series of U.S. maps indicate the availability of these sources by type.

Media Treatment (MT7)

Presented on a 32” touchscreen, this media treatment allows the visitor to learn more about renewable sources of energy, specifically:  solar, wind, geothermal, wave/tidal, biomass, biofuels, hydro, and hydrogen and other future sources. The sources are clearly indexed and allow visitors to read descriptions, see diagrams of how these technologies work, and learn interesting facts.
