Techno Science Paper Outline (revised) I. Indroduction: Energy is a fundamental necessity demanded by society. A. Without readily available sources of energy society would grind to a halt. In time other fossil fuels were harnessed through combustion to power a rapidly expanding society. 1.65% of all the energy released is not converted to usable energy, usually in the form of electricity. 2. 2.2Modern levels of technology allow for much greater returns on our energy investments, but not without a cost. Nearly all energy that we consume could be utilized in the form of electrical energy with only minor changes in existing capitol. B. In this particular and ideal scenario there is very little energy wasted because new technologies allow us to efficiently harness electrical power from renewable resources, sometimes without having to change from one form of energy to another. This is because most of the chemical energy in fossil fuels is lost when it is changed into heat then mechanical energy and finally into electrical energy. Rare earth elements, REE, are lanthanide metals which are relativity uncommon in the Earth’s crust. 1.
