Description:

The manufacture of products requires massive amounts of energy. This informational piece, part of a series about the future of energy, introduces students to the energy needs of the manufacturing community. Students explore three ways that manufacturing uses energy and the importance of fossil fuels to the manufacturing sector. A replacement for fossil fuels is suggested. An article on manufacturing soft drink cans is accessible from a sidebar. A link to a PBS NewsHour article on communities that benefit from excess electric power is provided.
