Why are Europe's clean energy sources importana to the region?
Yes. There is some pollution and carbon dioxide emitted in the manufacture of the turbines, but once they are installed they are very easy to maintain and they produce… electricity without any of the harmful byproducts of fossil fuel power stations.
Politically: 1.Western Europe: UK, France, Germany, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands and so on, 2.Central Europe: Poland, Hungary et cetera 3.Eastern Europe: Ukraine, Russia, Mol…dova, Belarus, 4.Southern Europe: Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, 5.Northern Europe: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland.
Well, it uses the almost never-ending stream of energy from the core of the earth; some 1% of the heat in the core of the earth could power the world for over 100 years.… Though this is true, it is definitely more green than coal or nuclear power (to an extent), but it has not really been used enough, or researched enough into to understand the real effects of it on the planet. to a degree, yes. Geothermal is the Earth's heat powering up things. There are sometimes gasses producd, but the actual geothermal power itself is harmless.
The four regions are the Nordic (Northern) region, the Southern region, the Western region, and the Eastern region.
solar power and hybrid tech. and electricity
Compared to everything else we have currently? Yeah. But there's a lot of hysterics and bad information out there. So, here you go: The uranium which powers a nuclear reacto…r has a long enough half-life (the rate at which the atom decays, which is the measure of its radioactivity) is long enough that you can safely hold the pellets in your bare hands for 80+ years before there is a statistically noticeable (not even significant, just noticeable) increase in the rate of radiation poisoning. You receive more radiation in a single x-ray at the hospital. Not only that, a single plant is able to produce more energy than 40 traditional coal burning plants. Now, it is important to understand how nuclear power is generated to really understand why its safe. Pellets of Uranium are essentially submerged in water and as the uranium decays, it heats the water and turns it into steam. The steam turns a turbine and this spins, generating electricity. That's really all there is to it. The only byproducts are steam (which is not radioactive) and spent uranium. Its cheap, effective and lasts a long time. In theory. In practice, there are, to be a fair, potential hazards. 1) nuclear waste: while the waste is actually more stable (and therefor less dangerous) than the raw uranium, nobody wants to take the risk. And, of course the more radioactive material in an area, the more likely to experience radiation poisoning. 2) out-dated reactors: If the reactors aren't maintained (as was the case at chernoble), there is potential for a "melt-down" where pressure builds up in the containers and they can potentially explode. This can, potentially, release radioactive material into the air. However, it needs to be remembered that nuclear material is very heavy when compared to most airborne particles, so it doesn't travel very far. And, even if the reactor explodes, it will not be a NUCLEAR explosion; there is no mushroom cloud. The conditions required for a nuclear explosion, as seen with nuclear weapons requires VERY specific and controlled conditions for the chain reaction to start and requires a less stable form of radioactive material than is found in reactors. 3) The uranium has to be mined: like coal, there are always side-effects from mining. However, uranium is not consumed as quickly as coal and generates more energy per pound. 4) Before it can be used in a reactor, most uranium has to be refined. This is a chemical process and again results in by-products. So how does nuclear really stack up? It IS cheaper, more effective and significantly less polluting than any other fossil fuel. Nuclear IS more cost effective and generates more energy than solar/wind/water/geothermal and requires less in terms of maintenance (geothermal turbines, for instance, are extremely expensive to maintain) Nuclear energy is pretty safe: You get more harmful radiation in a single day from solar and man-made sources than you get from radioactive materials
It certainly can be. Electric power from Nuclear and hydro is very clean.
Hydro-electricity is a clean source of energy. It is because energy is harnesses from flowing water. It does not cause pollution.
yes, but it is not commercially competitive.
Western European boundary countries include: Greece Italy Austria Germany Finland
Northern Europe, Southern Europe, Western Europe, Central Europe, and Eastern Europe.
Currently the best bets for keeping the world both clean and efficient, mainly include water power. This creates lots more electricity than wind energy, and is relatively comm…on. Many dams including the Hoover dam, and other well known dams have all been implemented with this very effective way of harvesting the worlds energy.
Because it does not produce carbon dioxide
Arguably it is while it is producing electricity, but if you look at how the fuel is mined and refined and the effort needed to build then decommission a plant then store …all the radioactive wast, it is clear that it is one of the most dirty energy sources.
