Spring 2010 Some energy considerations: Conversion: algae to biofuel, coal to heat, natural gas to electric power Are there different “levels” or “quality” of energy? Gasoline with 10% ethanol reduces the mpg about 3 – 5% below regular gasoline. How do we know if we are using the energy as effectively as possible?
