Based on practical circumstance, Vietnam is regarded as a country having various potential to develop renewable energy. The issue related to exploitation of these sources plays a significant role ranging from Economy, Society, Security to even Sustainable Development. Thus, the appearance of this model is most likely a prompt supplement for ExploraScience in order to introduce along with propagate the positive prospective towards growing “clean” sources in Vietnam. A list of items would be approached through this demonstration as follows:
1. Solar energy
First of all, live observation and interaction towards the model by controlling the brightness of a light played as Sun is a wonder waiting for you here. When receiving the “sunlight”, solar panels would operate and, then, have a measuring clock run to show the capacity of these batteries.
2. Geothermal energy
Secondly, stable supply and minimization of damage in environment compared to fossil fuel or nuclear power is likely to make you surprise about geothermal energy. It has diverse methods of use, ranging from heating household water and buildings by using underground water to pumping these flows of water and steam so as to rotate electric turbines.
Through the sand table, visitors could cast a look in underground steam or imagine a practical geothermal plant most vividly.
3. Wind energy
For this section, what you need to do is to control the process of making wind in order to rotate windmills and, in practice, have their turbines run at the same time to generate electricity.
4. Tidal power
If used in our life, this renewable source would change the direction from transferring land’s electricity to island into island’s one to land. Interestingly, by lively interacting with the model, visitors are to adjust level of tidal to go up or down which makes the blades run to generate a free and eternal source of energy!
5. Hydroelectric energy
Basically, water power is the origin of hydroelectricity. It is the fact that our electric manufacturing creates no carbon dioxide (CO2) due to the disappearance of using fossil fuel at hydroelectric dams. Although CO2 initially occurs through the building process of plants and a tiny amount of methane annually produced by them, hydroelectricity is regarded as the lowest greenhouse-gas-emitting source to generate electricity.
6. Biomass power
Last but not least, potential of biomass power in Vietnam is rated being extremely diverse and large-reserved. Thus, the effective exploitation towards this source is expected to simultaneously provide energy for economy development as well as secure the protection of environment. To be specific, the best thing about the location of biomass power plant over sand table is its proximity to farm and residential area which actually brings a clear visibility about the link between ingredients from farming or emitting activities and generation of electricity.
As an undeniable fact, renewable power is recognized as dominant mainstream being replacing resources of fossil fuel across the world. Moreover, shifting to these “sustainable” supplies could constrain the climate change having been happening adversely. By this way, the miniature model of renewable energy appearing at ExploraScience is not only to partly convey scientific wonders from kinds of “green” power, but also reinforce and encourage people’s active attitude towards saving energy resources of country.
