    smaller heat demands, it allows electricity to be generated sooner after being turned on, and are more efficient at producing heat. Stirling engine needs a short warm up period before they start producing electrical power. [2] How does a Micro- CHP work? Natural gas is consumed in a Stirling...

  13. Energy Resource Callenges

    energy produced. Sources like solar and wind power are good at adding capacity to the grid during peak usage, but they're not good base load power generators. Also another problem is that they are more expensive to produce. The cost gap is closing, however, because the new technology is getting better...

  14. Wind Farms

    natural resource and the potential for collecting more energy than needed to power any types of solar or wind generators.* Another argument that was brought up by some scientist is the cost of producing the equipment needed to sustain the discover of this energy source. Studies have shown that only one country...

  15. compatative report

    through the spinning of turbines. In hydropower, water passes through turbines in a dam, these turbines in turn spin a generator, producing electricity. In nuclear power, radioactive rods heat water, which produces steam, this steam spins turbines, which like hydropower, spins a generator, producing...

  16. Vande Graff Generator

    impressive electrostatic generator that is capable of producing enormously large static electric potentials. In fact, giant Van de Graaff generators can produce millions of volts leading to awesome displays of corona and lightning. More modest "class room" sized Van de Graaff generators typically...

  17. Hazardous Waste

    hazardous waste generators are larger companies like chemical manufacturers, electroplating companies, and oil refineries. A US facility that treats, stores or disposes of hazardous waste must obtain a permit for doing so under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. Generators of and transporters...
