Find out about the technologies that can reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. This resource consists of an animated video accompanied by an interactive landscape activity.
The video focuses on technologies that can reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels, as well as renewable energy and improved energy efficiency.
The interactive landscape allows students to select from a range of low emission energy resources and activities and access related images, information sheets and video clips. The interactive explores energy efficiency and production incorporating both renewable and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies including oxy-fuel firing, post combustion capture and coal gasification.
