Are renewable fuels worth the investment?
The purpose of this Mastery Project is to explore the relationship between matter in its different forms and the energy that can be produced by converting matter into fuel. You will review various types of matter, revisit kinetic and potential energy, follow the path from energy source to fuel in your home/business, practice reading energy bills from local utility companies, and interview a representative from a utility company serving your community. You goal is synthesize what you learn and to present your case for investing in a specific renewable energy source to more than 20,000 attendees at a global energy conference. You will research the cost of implementing a renewable energy source in your home, calculate the cost savings over time, determine the break-even point for your investment, and produce a video that summarizes your findings.
