Summary

From the batteries that power tools and toys to the gasoline we use in our cars, almost everything we use needs energy to work. As we move into the 21st century and beyond, we continue to develop new technologies to power our homes, businesses, and cars. But where will this energy come from, and how will the technology work? Energy Today uses vivid full-color photographs and illustrations to answer these questions and elaborate on the economic and environmental imperatives that are spurring new energy research. The titles introduce young readers to hot topics ranging from familiar technologies, such as fossil fuels like coal and oil, to ones on the cutting edge of energy research, like biofuels and hydrogen fuel. Handy features include a glossary, a list for further reading, and an index for quick reference.
