Renewable Energy Infographic

Renewable O Energy The United States currently relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy. Fossil fuels are nonrenewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy resources are constantly replenished and will never run out. Types of Renewable Energy Solar Wind Hydrogen Geothermal Hydropower Biomass Ocean Uses: Solar Power Uses: Wind Power Uses: Biofuels Biopower Bioproducts Uses: Fuel Cells Uses: Geothermal Uses: Uses: Hydropower Plant Tidal Power Plant Plant Power Plant Wave Power Thermal Heat Pumps Companies Running on 100% Renewable Energy WHOLE KOHL'S FOODS PEARSON HSBC DANNON TD MARK ET One wind turbine can produce enough electricity to power up to 300 homes. Albert Einstein won the Nobel . Prize in Physics 1921 for his ground-breaking experiments with solar power and photovoltaics. Renewable Energy Creates Jobs Job Predictions According to Greenpeace's Energy [R]evolution If 205 gigawatts of PV systems are in place by 2020, solar energy could provide 2 million jobs worldwide. 12 million 12 11 In 2006 the wind industry created 16,000 direct jobs and 36,800 total jobs. 10 Requiring automakers to meet a fleet-wide average of 35 mpg by 2018 will create 241,000 additional jobs nationwide by 2020. 8. 18 million The geothermal industry is projected to create 8,764 direct jobs and 21,910 total jobs by 2026. 4.5 million A 1,000 MW wave and tidal power system could create up to 2,000 manufacturing and installation jobs. 4 2015 2020 2025 2030 Enough sunlight falls on the earth in just one hour to meet world energy demands for a whole year. Renewable Energy Usage by State Over 70% of Washington's electricty comes from hydroelectric power. 50,000 MWH. West Virgina could replace all its electrical capacity with 2% of its geothermal power potential. 10,000 - 49.999 MWH+ 5.000 8.9999 MWH. 1,500 - 4999 MWH. The world's largest wind farm is in Texas. Less Than 1500 MWH. California produces more geothermal, solar and wind power than all other states combined. All computer servers worldwide use more electricity than the entire demand of France. About half of this energy goes to waste – enough to power Australia.
