    Student profile for Komalirani Yenneti, Doctoral Researcher in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences. Komalirani is undertaking doctoral research on 'Unpacking low carbon interventions in India: the implementation gap in renewable energy and climate mitigation policies' taking the case of solar energy large scale projects implementation. The energy used to power the machinery came from inanimate power such as biofuel and fossil fuels. Currently, the most used energy source for less-developed nations is biofuels, such as trees, coal, and methane. However, in more developed nations and nations transitioning, fossil fuels have become the central source of energy. Mining.

    A brief guide to sources of materials to help geography teachers incorporate energy issues into course content. Describes 15 books and six data sources which focus on topics such as trends in fuel production and consumption, trade in energy supplies, and environmental and political implications of fuel production and transport. (Author/AV). Geothermal energy is heat that is generated within the Earth.(Geo means “earth,” and thermal means “heat” in Greek.)It is a renewable resource that can be harvested for human use. About 2, kilometers (1, miles) below the Earth’s crust, or surface, is the hottest part of our planet: the core.A small portion of the core’s heat comes from the friction and gravitational pull.
