These animations illustrate technologies and concepts from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's (EERE) programs. Animations about EERE's work in geothermal energy, hydrogen, industrial energy efficiency, solar energy, vehicle technologies, and wind energy are available here.
Shows how a geothermal plant operates.
Explains how an enhanced geothermal system functions.
Shows how a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell works (PEM fuel cells are the most common type used in light-duty fuel cell vehicles).
Illustrates how multiple safety systems are integrated into the design of hydrogen-fueled vehicles.
See animations from the Solar Energy Technologies Office on its multimedia website.
Explains how hybrid vehicles work by showing energy flow among components during various driving activities.
Shows how wind turbines operate and produce electricity for homes or other buildings.
Describes wind turbines and the use of wind power to produce electricity in small and large applications.
