Electricity Generation: Renewables

Media: DVD
DUR: 44 mins
Product Code: EGR
Price: £49.00

The drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions means that many governments are trying to decarbonise electricity generation.  But some renewables only generate electricity when conditions are right. They're also very location dependent and can often face opposition from local residents.  From wind, to solar, biomass, HEP, tital and geothermal power - as well as explaining how different renewables are used to generate electricity, this DVD examiners the pros and cons of each energy source.  Used together with the "Electricity Generation: Non-Renewables" DVD it will encourage students to consider whether 100% renewable electricity is realistic.
