Energy and Recycling *suitable for home teaching*

This programme is part of the Teachers TV series Sustainability in California, which showcases the ingenuity and cutting edge technology that California is applying to sustainability and clean energy. The programme looks at the development of non-polluting cars which use hydrogen as the fuel, called zero-emission cars, and the state’s first renewable refuelling station which converts solar energy into electrical energy and water to produce hydrogen. The safety features which minimize the risks of pressurised hydrogen gas in a vehicle are explained, as well as the economic factors which affect new technologies. The second part of the programme looks at how some of the largest wind turbines in America are built and explains how they work.
