Biomass Energy Important Issues
Why biomass energy?
Types of biomass energy?
Sustainable potential for utilization?
Possibilities to serve different end use needs?
Technical development status?
Research and development
Hydro-power: used by humans
since the ancient ages.
Indirect solar power.
Unlike most of the others, however, it is already a
major contributor to world energy
Hydroelectricity is a well-established technology,
Generally the material can be divided into three types:
In insulator we need very high energy to move one electron from valance band to
conduction band to bec

Wind energy turbines stem from early Persian panemones a
vertical axis spinner for grinding grain
Not all power (59.3% max) can be extracted from the wind, but
the turbines are relatively simple technology
