The use of conventional technology to produce
electrical power normally results in pollution that affects everyone.
It often relies on the burning of fossil fuels that produce dangerous
gases that often end up in the atmosphere. People and animals breathe
in the polluted air and plants absorb the pollution.
Alternative energy is normally produced by
harnessing the natural world around us and the elements. Usually it
does not create pollution in the atmosphere or at least it only
produces small amounts.
|Many of the different forms of producing electrical power are written below. Underneath each method write whether it is a conventional energy source or an alternative energy source.|
|Can you think of any other ways of producing electrical power not mentioned above ? If so, write them below.|
