How much does it cost to generate 1kw of electricity in Australia?
The country of Australia pulls it's electricity from a variety of different sources and where you are located. This means that the cost to generate 1 kilowatt of electricity can vary between 15 and 25 cents . ...

What are the alternatives to generating electricity?
The best way to produce electricity is by Solar energy . Solar energy is freely available but only thing is that the implements and instruments used to generate electricity are very costly and they are not much developed. There is also a method to generate electricity ie. by geo thermal energy In this method we can do it by the heat of earth. Thankyou ...

How much more electricity does biomass energy generate than coal?
I am pretty sure that LESS electricity is generated with biomass, meaning that its use is not as common as coal. ...

Does it cost more to make electricity than it saves?
Electricity companies generate electricity and then sell it at a price that covers their costs. We have a choice of using a lot or a little, depending on how much we want to pay. ...
How much coal is needed to produce 1 kwh of electricity assuming maximum thermodynamic efficiency?
More than to generate 0,5 kwh, but less than to generate 1,5 kwh.
Asked in Elements and Compounds
Do tungsten rings get hot from electricity?
Yes, pass electricity through one and it will generate heat. Pass enough and it could theoretically produce light. It's the same material (roughly) that inside of lightbulb filaments. It has a HIGH resistance which means, while being conductive, much of the electricity passing through it will be converted into heat energy. ...
Asked in Wind Power
How much do wind turbines contribute to the electricity supply?
It gets better. As the temperature has plummeted, the turbines have had to be heated to prevent them seizing up. Consequently, they have been consuming more electricity than they generate. ...
Asked in Nuclear Energy
What do they use nuclear energy for?
Primarily, nuclear power is used to generate electricity and presently produces close to 20% of the electricity in the US and about 20% world wide. Some countries, France in particular, generate much more of their electricity through nuclear. Nuclear power is also used to manufacture radioisotopes which are then used to treat cancers and other health problems. ...
