Energy resources

This resource explores UK energy sources. Students will learn that the UK currently uses a mixture of non-renewable and renewable energy resources for its energy supply but to mitigate climate change, more renewables must be used. Students will be able to give examples of why, where and how, wind, solar, hydroelectric power, geothermal and biofuels are used as renewable energy resources and should understand, and be able to give examples of, renewable energy schemes in other countries to provide sustainable energy.

Students will also play a game with dice where the number on the dice decides how much money players get each turn. Money is used to buy pipes which players use to connect components of their energy source to generate electricity for the National Grid.
