The Greening of Energy

KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16KS5: ages 16+DVD

Although renewable energies are seen as “clean and green”, their development can often be cause for conflict. Some forms of renewable energy are also limited by weather and climate. With this DVD students can examine the pros and cons of a variety of renewable energy sources, drawing examples from the UK, India and Europe. The de-carbonisation of energy is discussed, and Tidal, HEP, Wind, Solar, Biomass and Biogas are all considered.

As well as the 46-minute film, there are extensive teachers’ notes and student activities. The resource links in with many English exam board specifications; for further details, visit the Pumpkin Interactive website.
