  • Renewable Energy
    • Waste
      • Waste from landfill is burned. This energy boils water and the steam turns the turbiine
      • Advantage - Reduces waste in landfill
      • Disadvantage - Carbon dioxide is emitted
    • Tidal
      • Disadvantage - Some tides produce more energy than others
      • The movement of water as the tide goes in and out turns the turbines
      • Advantage - Water is always moving
    • Crops/wood
      • Burned to release thermal energy which boils water to create steam which turns the turbine
      • Advantage - They are carbon neutral
      • Disadvantage - Burning wood emits carbon dioxide, burning crops reduces space and water fro growing food
