In the next posts, I’ll analyze the reasons why fossil fuels won’t be the fuel of the future. Burning fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas,) causes greenhouse emissions and climate change. That’s why we need to reduce the harmful effect which burning fossil fuels.
This short series will make us understand the concepts of energy power, the difference between them, and the essentials of why to use or avoid them in the future.
Let’s start with how energy burned from coal is distributed to households.
Energy burned from coal may be converted in a power station to electricity which is then distributed to households
How does the light emerge at home?
First, a primary energy source is used. Either a fossil fuel source such as coal, gas, oil, or nuclear power.
Next, the energy source is used in a power station to convert heat energy into electrical energy.
Then, the energy is delivered to households where it is used for cooking, lighting, etc.
