  • Explain how this renewable resource is harnessed for energy.
  • Considering that it takes energy to make energy, identify the kind of energy needed to make electrical energy from this resource.

Or, how much energy does a dam produce in a year? Or, how many wind turbines would be needed to produce the same amount of energy as the average dam?
  • Compare and contrast the benefits and drawbacks of the renewable energy resource.

Support your statements with scholarly references and appropriate examples.
