Question 7 (15 marks)
This TMA assesses the following learning outcomes.
Knowledge and understanding
The forms of energy and the various definitions of ‘sustainable’ energy, and the relevance of sustainability to the design and implementation of energy systems.
The principal sources of primary energy in use today, their development over the past century, and the general patterns of world, regional and national energy consumption.
The basic principles underlying the design and use of energy supply systems, and the basic principles underlying the efficient use of energy.
The pollutants produced through the combustion of fossil fuels, their environmental impacts and the amelioration of these (for coal).
Critically evaluate differing explanations and arguments for the relative resource depletion impacts of different energy technologies (for coal).
Use appropriate scientific and mathematical techniques applied to energy related issues or contexts.
Analyse information about energy and its use, from a variety of sources and using ICT tools.
Clearly articulate ideas, proposals and arguments relating to energy, in a variety of ways for differing contexts and audiences.
