The aspects you will be researching are:
  1. non-renewable energy
  2. renewable energy
  3. how power plants work
  4. how electricity is transmitted and distributed from the power plant to homes, factories and offices


  • Once you have found your information you will decide how you are going to use it: describe the sources of you kind of energy …….. explain how they formed or how they are used ….. compare/contrast them…
  • Then you are going to prepare your work.
