Alternative energy lesson

This activity provides an opportunity to revise work on fossil fuels and climate change, and help students appreciate the impact of science and engineering on our everyday lives. Students are given an email brief from the chief executive of Power plc, asking them to review the three alternative energy types that the company are considering for the future: Hydrocarbons, renewables (wind power) and hydrogen fuel cells.  They need to note the pros and cons of each, and report back on which type of energy is the best option.
