Assess your own energy use: What forms of energy do you currently rely on and where do they originate from? Be sure to consider the energy that you use at home, during travel, and at work or in school.

The Future of EnergyNameClassDateProfessorThe Future of Energy In the past the Earth had a plethora of resources available to the population but as time as gone on and the population has been expanded and the abundant resources have begun to diminish. One way these resources are being used up is through energy consumption. As a result many scientists across the globe have begun searching for alternative means for creating energy. Currently in the United States there are many different ways that energy is created and they include through windmills, nuclear power, solar energy, and hydro electricity. Energy is also produced through the use of petroleum products and natural gas. The type of energy that is used at my home includes electricity which power the lighting, central air, dishwasher, washer and dryer, televisions, and refrigerator. Other forms of energy used in the home include natural gas which heats the hot water heater, powers the furnace, and heat's the stove. In Austin Texas there are many different forms of energy. The electricity that powers the electricity in my home is powered through natural gas. Natural gas or propane is placed in a propane tank that is then pumped directly into the house in order to fuel this power source. In Austin, TX three natural gas power plants are the main source of energy (AGA, 2013). Natural gas is a clean fossil fuel that does not pollute the air and is reliable and does not require transportation
