Energy Resources

Process

  1. This is an urgent situation and you only have 5 days to present this project assigned to you. Visual presentation will be an asset and will help us to understand which are the best renewable energy that we can use to substitute our non renewable energy. You must do some research and put in a proposal in your assigment.

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

 1.Your work must start by giving some general information about some renewable energy sources such as

 

  • Solar energy
  • Energy from biomass
  • Geothermal energy
  • Energy from flowing water
  • Wind energy
  • Wave energy and tidal energy
  • Ocean thermal energy conversion

 

 

2.Choose from above which of them can be implemented to Malta? Give good reasons to strengthen your argument.

 

 

3. Using google earth or other remote sensing tool, analyse which places in Malta could these new innovation be placed in.

 

 

4.After research and findings present the final result in a presentation so all members of the state will understand you.

General information about alternative energy sources could be found in:

 

 

There is also some information in my:

website:http://sites.google.com/site/emanmangion/

 

Attachment 2 will show you some renewable policies that where done for Malta.

 

                        -------------------------------------------------------

To see which alternative resources could be implemented to Malta these sites could be beneficial regarding:

 

 

  • Solar energy  

    There is a power point attached below regarding this subject.

       -------------------------------------------------------

     

  • Energy from biomass

  • Energy from flowing water

  • Ocean thermal energy conversion

       -------------------------------------------------------

     

     

    To search which best locality to gain the most energy from renewable energy, information about the landscape of  Malta is required. Using google earth and Mepa site will help you to understand the landuse.

     

     

     This link will show you a presentation how to use google earth
