Thermal energy

Image of the Sun taken through x-ray.
The energy released as heat thermal energy is called. Can be obtained from nature or the Sun through an exothermic reaction, such ascombustion of a fuel; by nuclear reaction of fission or fusion; using electrical energy Joule effect or thermoelectric effect; or by friction, as other processes mechanical or chemical residue. It is alsopossible to harness energy of nature found in form of thermal, photovoltaic solar energy or geothermal energy.
Thermal energy can be transformed using a heat engine, either in electric power, athermoelectric power station; or working mechanic, as a motor car, plane or boat.
Thermal energy involves an environmental impact. Combustion releases carbon dioxide (CO 2) and pollutant emissions.Current nuclear energy technology gives rise to radioactive waste must be controlled. Use of field-generating power plants and risks of pollution accidents in the use of the materials involved, as thespills of oil and petrochemical products must also be taken into account.

Radiant energy

Light (a form of radiant energy).
Radiant energy is the energy that possess electromagnetic waves [] asthe visible light, radio waves, ultraviolet (UV), infrared (IR), etc. The main feature of this energy is that it propagates in vacuum material without any. Airs on units called photons.
CHEMICALenergy: It's produced by chemical reactions which emit heat or who by his violence can develop some work or movement. Foods are an example of chemical energy to be processed by the body heat (calories)offering us or are sources of natural energy (proteins and vitamins). Being burnt fuels produce violent chemical reactions that produce work or movement
Electric power

Consumption of electricityby country in million kWh.
It is called electrical energy in the form of energy resulting from the existence of a potential difference between two points, allowing you to establish an electric... [continua]
