5.04 Hydroelectric and Wind Energy Directions: Complete the following chart on hydroelectric and wind energy using the lesson. Energy Source Is source always available? Advantage Disadvantages (at least 2) How is the energy harnessed? Hydropower The more water pumped the move available. Unlike fossil fuel burning power plants, hydroelectric plants do not emit harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere Like nuclear energy, they can be indirectly responsible for greenhouse gases being added to the atmosphere. Dams can also disrupt fish migration up/down stream, change water temperature and chemistry, and change silt loads. Hydroelectric energy is harnessed by damming rivers to form large reservoirs or lakes. Wind Energy Wind Energy s not always available. Like most alternative sources of energy, wind energy is a renewable energy source that does not emit hazardous greenhouse gases and pollutants into the atmosphere.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
