Natural energy usually made by windmills or turbines. Biomass energy - is taking living or dead matter and turning into energy. 2. Explain how to use cost of saved energy (CSE) to determine the time required to repay the cost of investments in conservation for renewable energy. Answer: chapter 16 section 9. When you use natural resources for power you stop spending money on manufactured power/energy and the natural resources end up paying for themselves. CSE is by economists. (e.g. spending $2000 for light, it would save 1000 kwatts, 2 cents per killowat hour, htne the company would save 8000 dollars per year) #swag 3. Economic energy intensity is much higher in some states than in others, describe two factors that might cause such differences. They might have more houses or factories. Cool so it’s determined by how much energy the population uses in relation to the amount of money the population spends, two factors that can cause differences: California - warm climate = air conditioning and so in California, the EEI will be different than Montana because it’s cooler. You would use less energy in California because it’s warm already. Answer: chapter 16 section 8. 4. How would use a conservation supply curve to determine the best combination of conservation strategies related to cost? You could show how they end up paying for themselves and the more you spend the more you get back according to the curve. How much you’re saving and how much you’re getting back Answer: chapter 16 section 8. Chapter 17 (Urban ecosystem) 5. Why must urban ecosystems be especially open to flow of energy?
