Energy Resourse Plan
...Energy Resource Plan SCI. 275 February 2011 Energy Resource Plan Energy conservation, the process of lessening or stopping the amount of usage one previously indulged in to ensure future use. People consume non-renewable energy at a fast pace. A tremendous amount is wasted unnecessarily. Wasting energy is an issue of serious concern to humans and the environment. Both are affected by the excessive energy use and have a dependency on energy resources. Some cultures use a bare minimum of energy to function. The Amish culture does not allow any use of electricity in accordance to their spiritual beliefs. The practices of the Amish are considered too extreme for normal society and their habits. However, this culture has flourished for hundreds of years. Society has developed a serious dependency to using electricity, natural gas, coal, and fossil fuels, or non-renewable fuels. These amenities are no longer luxuries; they are an essential part of daily life for the multitude of humankind. Unfortunately, these natural resources are vastly depleting and cannot be replenished. This is why it is necessary to conserve resources for future generations. Many people do not fully understand the differences between renewable and non-renewable energy resources and why it is so crucial to conserve. Non-renewable resources are unable to rejuvenate themselves. They do not grow or reform. Once they are depleted, there will be none thereafter. Renewable energy sources are: solar......

Energy Resource Plan
...It is important to conserve energy especially when it is produced by non-renewable resources. We use non-renewable fuels to crank our cars, to hear our homes and to cool our homes. When pollutants from these non-renewable fuels are released into the air it contaminate the air we breathe along with the water that we drink. With that being said it is important to conserve energy to keep the air that we breathe cleaner. Conserving energy is also important because it reduces the electric bill and the gas bill which in turns save you money. Using renewable resources are the better ways to conserve energy and to maintain a healthier atmosphere for all humans, plants, and animals. There are two types of energy resources and they are renewable and non-renewable resources. There are three top renewable resources and they are but not limited to solar energy, wind energy and hydropower. Solar energy comes directly and indirectly from the sun which contributes to the growth of plants and trees. Wind energy is the movement of air when warm air descends and cooler air comes in. This type of energy is beneficial for sailboats. Hydropower comes directly from the energy of flowing water which make electricity. All of these renewable resources come directly from the earth. Non-renewable resources are coal, petroleum, natural gas, and nuclear energy. These resources come from underground and most of them derive from the fossil of dead plants and animals. This resources are not reusable......

Sci/275 Week 8 Energy Resources Plan
...Energy Resources Plan All of us use energy every day for entertainment, cooking, transportation, lighting, heating and cooling homes, manufacturing, etc. We consume a lot of energy. The United States consumes about one fourth of the world's energy resources. When energy is produced from non-renewable fuels, to heat our homes or power our cars for example, pollutants are released into the air contaminating the air we breathe and water too. The more energy we use or miles we drive in our cars, the more energy power plants must produce or gasoline our cars burn, releasing more pollutants into the air. Renewable energy alternatives have many challenges, and managing these resources has become a nightmare. Renewable alternatives such as wind, solar, biofuels, and hydroelectric have become very popular as an alternative to nonrenewable energy resources. The first renewable energy alternative is wind energy. Because wind will always be around, the use of wind turbines is an energy alternative. A big challenge is that we cannot control the wind; some days it is strong and other days it is calm. Solar energy is another energy alternative. Photovoltaic solar electricity is the technology that is most cost effective to consumers in the United States. The greatest challenge to solar energy is that for 12 hours a day we do not have any sunlight, and there are days when it is to cloudy. Biofuels are derived from biomass (organic material) plants and animal waste. With......

Energy Resource Plan
...meeting to discuss the importance of the energy issue we are facing in our community. The reason why conserving energy is important right now is so we can save our environment from further damage, conserving energy will also save our community money. We need to know the difference between renewable and non-renewable resources, and what methods we need to take to conserve energy. Non – renewable resources are oil, coal, natural gases, and nuclear energy; non - renewable means that once we run out it cannot be replaced. These non-renewable resources are also harmful to our environment with their chemicals when burning fills our air, and their leaks and spills of oil in our ocean. Renewable resources are solar power, wind, biomass, tidal energy, and a few more; renewable energy generates directly from the sun, wind, rain, and tides. Renewable technologies will save money and boost our economy in the process. Each of you can help save energy indoors by: 1. turning off lights and electronics when not in use 2. use energy saving light bulbs 3. insulating your doors, and windows and the environment by: 4. plant trees 5. recycle 6. drive less The government effort in conservation has many applications for helping our environment. “Opportunities for energy conservation are increasingly available in almost every application in any setting. Home, school, office, and industrial environments have all benefited from cost-saving and energy-saving innovations” (U.S.......

Impacts of an Energy Plan
...Impacts of an Energy Resource Plan Holly Regan SCI/275 September 14, 2014 Stacy Murphy Impacts of an Energy Resource Plan My dearest great-great grand-children: The finding of this letter explaining the best option for a long-term energy sustainability plan is no accident, and if you have opened a time capsule as directed, this letter is one hundred years old and the year is two-thousand and fourteen (2014). The nation’s current energy situation is in bad shape. We have nearly depleted the planets resources of fossil fuels that are non-renewable. Energy4Me.org defines nonrenewable resources as are energy sources like petroleum, propane, natural gas, coal and nuclear power. These resources have taken millions of years to produce and cannot rejuvenate in shorter lengths of time. What I mean is there needs to be another form of renewable energy that is sustainable for your generation and your children's and grand-children's generation. Our lives are so dependent on the supply of nonrenewable resources that our daily routines require its use. We need petroleum to run our factories, for personal and public transportation vehicles, for many pharmaceutical products and plastics. Energy production has come a long way since the 1800's and 1900's when wood was the predominant fuel of the times. In this era, there are many more energy options, but the U.S. relies mostly on three fossil fuels: coal, oil, and natural gas. Six years ago fossil fuels accounted for......

Marine Environmental Impact and Energy Use
...Marine environmental impact and energy use Bridging the environmental gap in shipping Faced with current and anticipated legislation, increasing customer environmental awareness among cargo owners and passengers plus fuel cost rises, there has never been a better time for the senior management of shipping companies to rationalise their company’s energy use. Stuart Melling, manager for marine and crane service at ABB Ltd., examines some of the options. From emissions reduction, improved fuel use through to the environmental impact of new builds, the shipping industry faces a challenging future. Emissions reduction In 2007 the global shipping industry is estimated to have emitted 1,046 million tonnes of CO2, which is some 3.3 percent of total global emissions. The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) predicts a 250 percent rise in emission levels as a result of expanding sea transport, if suitable energy efficiency policies are not implemented. Yet legislation has in many respects by-passed the shipping sector as reflected by its exclusion from international agreements such as the Kyoto protocol. Even though shipping is recognised as the cleanest form of transporting goods, with the least damage per tonne of cargo, ship exhaust emissions are regarded as the industry's biggest polluter. So although the marine industry has consistently resisted taking any significant measures to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, it now looks like it will finally bow......

Energy Resource Plan
...Energy Resource Plan Andria Cogar Axia College Our utility bills have been increasing in past months that have raised many questions about the cause. Is no one in the family is turning off the lights when a room is not being occupied, doing less than a full load of laundry, and not taking shorter showers? Energy conservation is on the rise, even though few try to stick with what will make the environment better. Conserving energy can be helpful in a number of ways; whether it be to save money for a family vacation, decreasing pollutions in the air we breathe; or just stopping the amount of green house gases being emitted into our atmosphere. We are using nonrenewable energy to supply us with energy to cook, clean, and keeping us warm; without even thinking of its consequences, which in turn will not last forever. There are distinctions between nonrenewable and renewable energy that will help in the future to ensure a better way of life. Nonrenewable energy is energy that comes from the ground, and is not replaced in a short amount of time. Fossil fuels are the main source of nonrenewable energy, which includes; oil, natural gas, and coal. Steaming from plants, and animals’ decomposed remains; that have been in the soil for millions of years. Renewable energy is energy is energy that replenishes itself automatically from natural processes. Examples include; wind, sunshine, biological processes, flowing water, and geothermal heat flows are all methods of renewable......

Richard Branson Launches a Green Energy Plan for the Caribbean.
...Branson Launches A Green Energy Plan For The Caribbean. ENERGY In 1979, when Richard Branson bought the 74-acre Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, he paid less than $300,000. It was untouched, undeveloped, inhabited only by birds and jungle critters. Back then, no one worried a wit about carbon emissions, ocean acidification, rising sea levels. To bring electricity to his island retreat Branson, like virtually everyone else on the small islands of the Caribbean, installed diesel generators. As far as fuels go, diesel is hard to beat. It's easy to transport and contains a lot of energy in a small volume. It's already ubiquitous in the islands as fuel for boats. And it's never been cleaner, with U.S. government standards limiting sulfur content to no more than 15 parts per million. For decades, diesel was simply the way to go. But Branson wants to change that. Because running on diesel means that the cost of electricity on Caribbean islands averages about 50 cents per kwh, about five times what it is on the mainland United States. In early February, Branson leveraged his star power to convene a three-day meeting of dignitaries from 13 Caribbean nations including the Virgin Island, St. Kitts & Nevis, Turks & Caicos and the Cayman Islands. While enjoying both Necker Island and Branson's neighboring Moskito Island, they discussed the costs of powering their island homes and the economics of switching over to clean, green renewable energy.

The reason why conserving energy is important is because we can save our environment and our climate from further damage. Not only will conserving energy assist in our environment but it will also save everyone money. In order to conserve energy we first need to know the difference between renewable and non-renewable resources and the methods we can use to help conserve energy. Non-renewable resources include oil, coal, natural gases, and nuclear energy. Non-renewable refers to not being able to replace these sources once they run out. Non-renewable resources are harmful to our environment because of all their chemicals such as when burning pollutes our air and their leaks and spills pollute our ocean. Renewable resources include solar power, wind energy, biomass fermentation, tidal energy, and a few more. Renewable energy generates directly from the sun, wind, rain, and tides.

Energy Conservation Plan
...Energy Conservation Plan Keenan Williams SCI 275 April 15, 2012 Sarah Franklin Energy Conservation Plan Energy is something that is a necessity for the human race to function. People are very ignorant when it comes to conserving energy, which in turn wastes what little non renewable resources remaining and becoming scarcer. A non renewable energy source is something that cannot be reproduced or grown; it comes from sources that can be completely depleted, such as fossil fuels, oils, and natural gases ("U.s. Energy Information Administration", ). When our non renewable sources start becoming harder to obtain, the price to use them goes up. The majority of the energy we use comes from non renewable sources. Energy is wasted daily basis. Leaving lights on during the day, leaving televisions on when no one is watching it, having multiple electronics plugged in to the wall instead of a surge protector, leaving the air conditioner running when no one is home, and doing laundry all throughout the day instead of doing it when the rates of electricity is lower are all ways that energy is wasted. A good way to stop the wasting of energy is to avoid those mentioned activities. These are just small things people can change in order to conserve energy, and if everyone would do it, it could make a big difference. The issue of energy conservation has both living and non living contributing factors. The biggest living contributing......
