On October 29 & 30 the Power and Renewables Summit will be taking place in Austin as energy leaders across the energy value chain join together for conversations on how renewables are causing a shift in power markets and are creating opportunities relating to decarbonization. Despite advances in technology, today, the global economy consumes most of its energy though only four technologies: the steam turbine, gas turbine, gasoline engine, and diesel engine.
As new technology is developing, it has become increasingly important to educate students about the timeline of events relating to both the new and old energy technologies. Our Energy Technologies: Change Over Time activity is a 20-30 minute activity that allows students to explore major energy conversion devices and create a timeline that illustrates the pace the energy landscape changes over time. As the energy landscape is transforming rapidly, let’s take time to appreciate and recognize major advancements in energy technology over time!
