Uses of Energy

Uses & 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.

Solar Energy and its Uses: Solar Energy information, news and facts. Freesolaronline gives user a step by step guide for Solar Energy Education and it's free uses as a permanent.

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

Texas Industrial Energy Efficiency: Fifty-three percent of the energy used in Texas is consumed by the industrial sector.

Water 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: Natural gas is the second most used energy source in industry, trailing only electricity.

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.

Transportation Energy 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.

Transportation 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.

Energy 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 no recommendations.

Applications of energy

Electrical 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

Future 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.
