Energy sources that can produce large amounts of electricty are: fossil fuels nuclear power hydroelectricity biofuels
Other energy sources such as wind power, wave power, solar power, geothermal power rely on the right sort of weather.
Energy sources can also have environmental impacts:
- Fossil fuels produce greenhouse gases, extracting them is dangerous and a pollution risk.
- Nuclear power creates radioactive water
- Wind farms cause noise and visual pollution.
