In the “Alternative energy” video, the first energy resource they talk about wind generators is about wind generators. These wind generators are tall towers with enormous fan blades, which rotate using the wind force. These generators create electricity when the wind, forces the blades to rotate. Wind generators are currently in use in the United States and Europe, and it is proving to be an efficient method to create electricity. Another source mentioned in the video is solar power. Solar power is generated when solar panels collect sun light beams, which turn gears in a generator providing energy. The video also mentions the production of bio fuels like ethanol, which it has been in use since the gas crisis of the 70’s. The ethanol fuel is made out of the corn, but according to the video scientists is experimenting with the material that is left behind by the farmers after they collect the corn and other harvest leftovers.

    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.
