Energy. What is it? Well electricity is all around us. It occurs
naturally as lighting and static electricity. Its just producing it can be
tricky. It is currently a secondary source. This means that another fuel is
consumed to produce it. With the
exception of hydro electric which is 90% efficient, most ways to generate it
are at best 40% efficient. If we generated it with magnets, We would be
generating electricity directly as a primary source. We are using magnetism to
pull electricity right out of thin air and can achieve efficiencies greater than
With many types being over 500 to 1000 % efficient.
of our electrical generation is done thru heat engines. These are engines that
burn something to produce heat. This heat boils water to produce steam, and then
this steam flows thru a turbine to spin a generator that produces electricity.
Its too bad we don't use magnets.
We could make
energy greater than 100% efficiency with no pollution.
