Abstract

Running a power plant consumes resources which we only have in a limited amount (at least for nuclear, gas, coal and oil based ones). You see: there is no reason to waste something. But what actually happens to the energy that we waste? Is it gone? You might say: “Yes, because there is no way to get it back!” But a physicist would probably answer you: “Energy is conserved in nature! Always and everywhere!” And he is right. Our laws of nature are based on the conservation of certain quantities, and energy is one of it.
