EVPP 111 Lecture Fall 2010 Energy: Renewable/Alternative Energy – Hydro and Geothermal What is the difference between renewable and nonrenewable energy? What are the sources of renewable energy? What is hydro power? What are some of the ways  that the energy of moving water can be harnessed? What are some of the problems associated with hydroelectric dams and the reservoirs that are created by them? What natural/physical features are needed for hydroelectric power generation? In general, what area(s) of the US have the greatest potential for hydroelectric power generation? What are some ways that tidal/oceanic/wave energy can be harnessed? What are the benefits of hydroelectric dams? What are the benefits of tidal/oceanic/wave energy power generation?
