Web Resources for Uses and
Applications of Energy
& Users Of Energy: Industrial activity is also more common
place in the North which uses more energy than the agriculture which takes
place in the South. However the underlying disparity is the difference in the
standards of livings between the two areas, with most of the North making do
with cars, televisions etc… and those in the South having to make do without.
How the Body
Uses Its Food Energy: The human body is incredibly complex. Every second,
millions of physiological and chemical reactions take place in order to
maintain good health. The body both creates things (eg. heat, muscle,
proteins, RNA, hair, nails, enzymes, fat tissue, bones) and breaks things
down (food, stored fat, etc.). These anabolic and catabolic processes, along
with all organs and systems, need fuel to enable them to function. The fuel
or energy that the body uses, comes from the food and drink that we consume
in our diet. In a nutshell, food is human gasoline.
Energy uses in industries
Industrial Energy Efficiency: Fifty-three percent of the energy used in
Texas is consumed by the industrial sector.
Energy Uses in California: Water use in California consumes significant
amounts of electrical energy. Preliminary estimates indicate that total
energy used to pump and treat this water exceeds 15,000 GWh per year, or at
least 6.5 percent of the total electricity used in the State per year. This
energy use is expected to increase due to a growing population, increasing
reuse of wastewater, the remoteness or lower quality of alternative water
sources, and increasingly stringent treatment requirements due to a variety
of water quality and environmental protection concerns.
Natural gas is the second most used energy source in industry, trailing only
Energy uses in transportation
Transportation Energy Use: America is a nation on the move. About 28 percent of the energy we use goes to transporting people and goods from one place to another.
Choices: With record high gasoline and diesel prices in 2005, many people
were thinking twice about the choices they have when it comes to
transportation. This section will help you understand the choices you can
make in the vehicle you buy, the fuel it uses, how you drive, and the way you
travel to school or work.
and Energy: Human activities are closely dependant on the usage of
several forms and sources of energy used to perform work. From a physical
perspective, energy is movement or the possibility of creating movement,
which can be ordered (mechanical energy) or disordered (thermal energy). It
exists in potential (stored) and kinetic (used) forms. Energy content is the
available energy per unit of weight or volume for an energy source. Thus, the
more energy consumed the greater the amount of work realized.
Use in Freight Transportation: The use of energy by the major modes of
freight transportation has become of increasing concern in setting
transportation policy. This report complements previous Congressional Budget
Office (CBO) studies of the relative energy efficiency of the major modes of
urban passenger transport and of intercity passenger transport. It was
prepared at the request of the Commerce, Transportation and Tourism
Subcommittee of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. In keeping with
CBO's mandate to provide objective and impartial analysis, the study offers
Applications of energy
Energy Efficiency: Tracking of copper wire and cable applications markets
in seven market areas during a 20-year span. Copper – the Energy Efficient
Metal That Communicates
Trends of Electrets Energy : A review is presented on applications of
electrets in the field of energy and environment.
Energy in homes
Energy Star : ENERGY STAR provides Products in more than 50 categories that use less energy, save money, and help protect the environment.
Sustainable Energy Development Office : Provides many easy and inexpensive ways to reduce energy use at homes.
Focus On Energy : The Wisconsin ENERGY STAR Homes Program works with homeowners, builders and the building industry to construct better homes, homes that are, on average, 25 percent more energy efficient.
Zero Energy Homes : ZEH combines state-of-the-art, energy-efficient construction techniques and equipment with renewable energy systems to return as much energy as it takes on an annual basis.

About Oilgae - Oilgae - Oil & Biodiesel from Algae
has a focus on biodiesel production from algae while also discussing
alternative energy in general. Algae present an exciting possibility as a
feedstock for biodiesel, and when you realise that oil was originally
formed from algae - among others - you think "Hey! Why not oil
again from algae!"
To facilitate exploration of oil production from algae as well as exploration of other alternative energy avenues, Oilgae provides web links, directory, and related resources for algae-based biofuels / biodiesel along with inputs on new inventions, discoveries & breakthroughs in other alternative energy domains such as solar, Wind nuclear, hydro, Geothermal hydrogen & fuel cells, gravitational, geothemal, human-powered, ocean & Wave / Tidal energy.
