    Understanding nuclear energy

    Most people don’t consider nuclear energy as clean energy most especially when comparing with solar energy and wind turbines. Despite the fact, nuclear energy is the second-largest source of low-carbon electricity in the world, following hydropower. Nuclear energy is released in significant amounts in processes that affect atomic nuclei, the dense cores of atoms. It…

  • Understanding light energy

    Understanding light energy

    Light energy is the only visible form of energy that serves a useful purpose to humans. It is a form of kinetic energy with the ability to make types of light visible to human eyes. The common form of light energy is the sun, which is the closest star to the planet earth. Light is…

  • Understanding chemical energy

    Understanding chemical energy

    Chemical energy is something that can be seen around us, as it may be released due to a chemical reaction. This often occurs in form of heat which is known as exothermic. For instance, sunlight creates a chemical reaction that makes plants grow. The energy in food is converted by the body into mechanical energy…

  • Understanding gravitational energy

    Understanding gravitational energy

    Gravitational energy is the energy associated with gravity as you may think. Gravity is a force that pulls two objects toward each other. What keeps you to the ground is the earth’s gravity and it causes objects to fall. It is the potential energy stored by an object because of its higher position compared to…

  • Understanding biomass energy resource

    Understanding biomass energy resource

    In the world of energy production, biomass is one of the common ways energy is produced using animal waste, wood pellets, etc. to create electricity. Even though there might be some environmental factors, biomass energy is called a renewable energy source. Debate is still ongoing on whether biomass is the greenest type of energy compared…

  • Understanding geothermal energy

    Understanding geothermal energy

    Among the renewable energy source available today, geothermal energy is one of the most common ones. It is the heat derived within the sub-surface of the earth and it is carried to the earth’s surface by water and/or steam. Geothermal energy is widely used for heating and cooling purposes or be harnessed to produce clean…

  • Understanding hydroelectric power

    Understanding hydroelectric power

    Just like other methods of power generation, hydroelectric power also produces electricity from generators driven by turbines. These turbines use the potential energy of falling or fast-flowing water, that is hydro energy and convert it into mechanical energy. It is a form of renewable energy that is widely used in the early 21st century. In…

  • Understanding solar energy

    Understanding solar energy

    Solar energy has been in use by humans for thousands of years for growing, staying warm, food drying, etc. The sunlight is a free available energy resource on our planet. Research has shown that the energy from the sun to earth in one hour is more than the total energy requirement for a whole year.…

  • Understanding thermal energy

    Understanding thermal energy

    Thermal energy is a form of energy obtained when a substance heated up. Although the term thermal energy can be used differently and often loosely. Thermal energy can also be called heat energy as is produced when a rise in temperature causes atoms and molecules to move faster and collide with each other. Today you’ll…

  • Understanding tidal energy

    Understanding tidal energy

    Having different types of energy resource out there have given us so much to look into, tidal energy which is a form of the renewable source is created using the movement of tides. This energy replenished because it is obtained from nature before it’s converted into a usable form. Tidal energy can be obtained in…
