Renewable and NonRenewable Energy Sources
By Sam, Presley, Arman, Chris
and Skyler
Solutions to Generating Electricity
• Many of the money that the government
invests in is, hydroelectric dams wind
farms and solar panels
• Sun and wind are renewable resources
• Coal and Oil are non-renewable resources
Renewable Sources
• They’re sources that can be reused and
replaced
• The government has been recently
investing in these resources
Non-Renewable Resources
• Is a resource that cannot be replaced or
reused
• Examples of this are coal and oil
• We will eventually run out of it
Generating Electricity
• One way is electromagnetic electricity
• The process includes moving a conducting
wire through a magnetic field
(electromagnetic induction)
• Generator transform the energy of motion
into an electric current
Using water power to generate
electricity
• Hydroelectricity generates most
electricity in Canada
• Niagara falls is a hydroelectric station
which uses the flow from a waterfall to
turn their turbines
• Dams are used to make electricity too
Connections
• Elliot Secondary School uses renewable
sources to save energy
• They use solar panels and wind turbines
as alternatives to non-renewable sources
• Government uses wind turbines in highwindy areas to get full benefit of the
turbines
