What is Energy and Environmental Engineering?

They specialize on how to efficiently use the earth’s energy and natural resources.

They are two separate branches of engineering

Energy Engineering primarily focuses on obtaining and effectively using energy

Environmental Engineering focuses on how to use the renewable resources without destroying the earth’s environment

Despite having different jobs, both branches are interdependent with one another.

the earth’s environment ❖ Despite having different jobs, both branches are interdependent with one another.

Benefits on this field of Engineering:

By practicing cleanliness around our environment, we are not only helping mother earth but also our future

Cleaner places means having a better lifestyle

Less pollution in big cities

Practicing this type of engineering can make a cleaner, safer, and better place to live in around the world

By using the earth’s renewable resources, the environment will remain untouched and can also fight climate change

Previous Sources for Energy

Windmills or Wind Turbines

Used to generate electricity for remote rural ares

This is the Appleton Edison Light Company

Known to be the world’s first hydroelectric plant

Began operation September 30, 1882 in Appleton, Wisconsin

Manufactured by H.J. Rogers

The Windmills

Current Technologies of the Previous Inventions

Today, windmills are currently stronger, sleeker, and has a better design compared to the previous versions from the past

They are most likely to be found in farms or near bodies of water

compared to the previous versions from the past ❖ They are most likely to be found

Future for Hydroelectric Energy

By inventing new pumped-storage hydropower technology, it can further integrate variable generation resources, such as wind and solar, into the national power grid because of its ability to provide grid flexibility, reliability and reserve capacity

Developing a comprehensive set of science-based environmental performance metrics and assessment tools will further the design and sustainable operation of hydropower projects.

Floating Nuclear Power Plant

Very low environmental impact

It can be built at a factory or shipyard, eliminating the need to set up a special site for its construction

Dismantling can be done in a specialised site

Just the same as the one on land, but the main difference is that it is portable and constantly moving

Conclusion

These engineers are important in today’s society because without them, we would not be able to utilize the earth’s renewable resources for power

There are so many things left for use to discover

Every year that goes by, new and better inventions are being discovered by the energy and environmental engineers

“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change from one form to another.”
