• The missing energy is the tidal wave.
             
 NEW types of energy.

·         1. Saltwater Power

Energy from sea water or from any salt water

·         2. Heliculture

Through this process hydrocarbon-based fuel is generated, through the mixture of brackish water, nutrients, photosynthetic organisms, carbon dioxide and sunlight.

·         3. Piezoelectricity

With the arrival of the world's human population to 7 billion people, one can think of harnessing the kinetic energy of human movement / displacement, which could be a real source of energy. Piezoelectricity is the ability of some materials to generate an electric field in response to mechanical stress.

·         4. Conversion of marine thermal energy (acronym in English: OTEC)

 This type of energy could be used by building platforms or barges on the high seas, taking advantage of the thermal layers found in the ocean depths.

·         5. Energy from human feces?

So is; human compost can also be used to generate electricity or fuel. Currently there are plans to mobilize buses in Oslo, Norway, based on energy produced by human feces. It is also possible to generate electricity from fertilizers using fuel from microbial cells, which use a bioelectrochemical system that generates a current by imitating bacterial interactions that exist in the natural world

·         6. Hot rock energy

Energy from hot rocks is a new type of geothermal energy that works by pumping cold salty water down to rocks that have been heated by conduction from the Earth's mantle and by the degradation of radioactive.

 
·         7. Evaporative energy
Inspired by plants, scientists have invented a synthetic microfabricated sheet, 
which is capable of producing electrical energy from evaporating water. Air bubbles can be pumped into the "leaves", generating electricity resulting from the difference in the electrical properties of water and air.
·         8. Vortex induced vibrations
This form of renewable energy, which draws energy from slow currents of water, 
is inspired by the movement of fish. Energy is captured as water flows through a network of rolls ("rods, eddles, or swirls") in an alternating pattern, pushing and pulling an object up or down or side to side such so that a mechanical energy is created. This works in the same way that fish curl their bodies to float between the vortices produced by the bodies of the fish, in front of them, riding in essence in the awakening of each one.
·         9. Moon Mining
Helium-3 is a nonradioactive luminous isotope that has an immense 
potential to generate relatively clean energy through nuclear fusion. The only advantage: it is rare on Earth but abundant on the Moon. There are many mining projects on the Moon to exploit this resource. For example, the Russian space company Energia RKK announced that it considers the Lunar Helium-3 an economic resource with developmentable mining by the year 2020.
·         10. Solar energy developed in extraterrestrial space
Because the energy of the Sun is unaffected by the 24-hour 
daytime-night cycle, and it is not affected by the weather, the seasons, or the filtering effect of terrestrial atmospheric gases. build solar panels that orbit Earth and send energy to Earth for use. The technological finding implied here has implicit wireless transmission of energy, which could be achieved using .

COMICS WRITING

 Definition and KINDS of ENERGY.
                                                                  Seeing this satellite image of the USA at night, it can be seen that the cities of the east and a minority of the west, are more enlightened, therefore they have a greater energy expenditure.

Energy Sourses

1) Find out and transcribe a DEFINITION of ENERGY.
Definition of energy In Latin it is where we find the etymological origin of the word energy. More precisely, in the term energy, it comes from the Greek word ένέρΥεια. The concept of energy is related to the ability to generate movement or achieve the transformation of something. In the economic and technological area, energy refers to a natural resource and the associated elements that make it possible to make an industrial use of it. 2) Make a GRAPHIC ORGANIZER using a table in Word. Complete it with: Introduction and types of energy sources.
3) Complete the list with KEY WORDS.
