Where does the energy from solar wind hydroelectric sources originally come from?
As you will know energy can not be created. Only transferred from one thing from another. Solar energy captures energy from the sun. Wind energy gets it from the kinetic energy making it move. And hydro electric also gets from kinetic energy. But kinetic energy from the movement of the waves. ...

What is the energy transfer for a solar powered fan?
heat energy is transferred/converted into kinetic and sound energy. Kinetic is usefull as it turns the wings and that is its purpose. sound energy is wasted as you do not need this ...

What energy transformations occur in a Wind Turbine?
Starting at the sun and going to the output electricity: Solar energy is produced by nuclear fusion (Nuclear fusion--> heat and electromagnetic energy) Solar energy warms the soil and air of the Earth (Radiant energy-->heat) Temperature differentials create wind. (thermal energy to molecular movement, molecular movement and gravity--> kinetic energy as air movement) Wind moves the blades of the turbine (kinetic energy-->kinetic energy) The spinning blades move magnets in a coil of wire (kinetic energy-->kinetic energy) A coil moving in a magnetic field creates electricity (magnetic energy-->electricity) ...
