... Types of Energy
These are the two main types of energy:
Kinetic: energy in motion
Potential: stored energy
The following forms of energy can be grouped into those two types.
Heat (Thermal Energy): internal motion of molecules. Ex. water boiling,
turning to steam.
Mechanical: energy from motion and m ...
... Energy – the ability to do work
Kinetic energy – energy of motion
Potential energy - the energy an object has because of its position or shape
Gravitational potential energy – energy due to an object’s position above the Earth’s surface.
Mechanical energy - total energy of motion and position of an ...

The current energy policy of the United Kingdom is set out in the Energy White Paper of May 2007 and Low Carbon Transition Plan of July 2009, building on previous work including the 2003 Energy White Paper and the Energy Review Report in 2006. It is led by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, currently headed by Amber Rudd. The current focus of policy are on reforming the Electricity Market, rolling out smart meters and improving the energy efficiency of the UK building stock through the Green Deal.
