  • The renewable sources of energy have been classified as solar, wind, hydropower, and others.


Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The line graph is interactive and provides two ways for students to explore data (chart and table).
  • Students may choose to view datasets for various geographic locations and time periods.
  • Related research and data are linked.
  • The site explains how the data was collected.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Learners need to be familiar with different sources of energy and electricity.
  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.

Differentiation

  • There are other related interactive maps for other sources of energy.
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

Renewable sources of energy including wind, hydropower, and solar are examined in this resource. Time series showed a variable span from 1985-2020. Students can visualize to gain insights on the trends. Thus, this resource is recommended for teaching.
