Ladies and Gentleman – Start your engines. You are about to take a trip through the different energy sources and discover that although energy is made to sound complicated, it is really quite simple.
Energy is used in only three places – for transportation, to provide heat, and to generate electricity.
The use of different sources of energy is quite recent – starting just about one hundred years ago as compared to the estimated 20,000 years that the human race has existed.
Energy is not a human need as compared to food and housing – but it is a necessity to improve the quality of our lives and advance civilization.
