A basic understanding of energy is central to every scientific discipline. the energy model will provide an overview of energy types in association with their origins and processing requirements.
Actual samples include: oil shale tar sand crude oil coal uranium ore natural biomass and a solar cell.
The 24" w x 18" h model also shows comparative trends in energy consumption for nuclear coal oil natural gas and renewables.
The chart illustrates actual energy consumption for 1980 and 1990 and projected figures for 2000 and 2010.
