What are 3 renewable sources of energy and an example of each?
Wind turbines take the mechanical energy of wind to generate electricity. Solar cells and solar collectors take the electromagnetic energy in sunlight to generate electrical energy or generate thermal energy to heat a substance. Hydroelectric facilities use the power of water under the influence of gravity to generate mechanical energy and (often) electric power. Let's throw in the idea that if we plumb (put pipes into) volcanic or thermal vents, we can collect thermal energy from the core of the earth. This can be used directly to heat things or to generate mechanical energy to create electricity.

What are the similarities between fossil fuels and wind energy?
Asked in Wind Power
How can wind energy be used to generate electricity?
Wind energy converts kinetic energy that is present in the wind into more useful forms of energy such as mechanical energy or electricity.Windmills that were used to grind grain are an example of early uses of wind energy. Modern uses of wind energy include generation of electricity and pumping water.

What is a disadvantage of using wind energy to generate electricity?
Asked in Science
Why wind energy is another form of solar energy?
Wind energy and solar energy are alternative energy sources they are NOT the same, solar energy comes from the suns heat while wind energy comes from the wind. Solar energy is generally collected with solar panels while wind energy is generated when the wind turns wind mill like structures that in turn, turn turbines that generate electricity.
