Energy is the global currency of everything, energy has become required to drive every machine and vehicle, not only that but doing our daily life tasks depends on the energy as well. Subsequently, the sources of energy are as important to keep the energy stock high enough to meet our needs. Get to know some of these sources and their history with mankind. From wind turbines and their spread around the world to nuclear power and its risks and benefits for humanity.
A wind turbine, or alternatively referred to as a wind energy converter, is a device that converts the wind's kinetic energy into electrical energy.
Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay, and nuclear fusion reactions. Presently, the vast majority of electricity from nuclear power is produced by nuclear fission of uranium and plutonium.
