GLOSSARY Word Search Puzzle:
  • Climate Change refers to global warming, the mainly human-caused increase in global surface temperatures and its projected continuation, and the effects of the warming such as changes in precipitation.
  • Global Warming is the ongoing rise of the average temperature of the Earth's climate systemIt is a major aspect of climate change which, in addition to rising global surface temperatures, also includes its effects, such as changes in precipitationWhile there have been prehistoric periods of global warming, observed changes since the mid-20th century have been unprecedented in rate and scale. 
  • Sustainability is the ability to exist constantly. In the 21st century, it refers generally to the capacity for the biosphere and human civilization to coexist. It is also defined as the process of people maintaining change in a homeostasis balanced environment, in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are all in harmony and enhance both current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations. 
  • Energy security is the association between national security and the availability of natural resources for energy consumption. Access to (relatively) cheap energy has become essential to the functioning of modern economies. 
  • Behaviour  is the actions and mannerisms made by individuals, organismssystems or artificial entities in conjunction with themselves or their environment, which includes the other systems or organisms around as well as the (inanimate) physical environment. 
  • Energy Community also referred to in the past as the Energy Community of South East Europe is an international organisation established between the European Union (EU) and a number of third countries to extend the EU internal energy market to Southeast Europe and beyond. 
  • Wind Energy or Wind Power is the use of wind to provide the mechanical power through wind turbines to turn electric generators and traditionally to do other work, like milling or pumping. Wind power is a sustainable and renewable energy, and has a much smaller impact on the environment compared to burning fossil fuels.
  • Energy Efficiency is the goal to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services. 
  • Energy Poverty is lack of access to modern energy services. It refers to the situation of large numbers of people in developing countries and some people in developed countries whose well-being is negatively affected by very low consumption of energy, use of dirty or polluting fuels, and excessive time spent collecting fuel to meet basic needs.
  • E-learning describes the cognitive science principles of effective multimedia learning using electronic educational technology
  • UpSkill means to teach someone new skills, or to learn new skills or to improve the aptitude for work of (a person) by additional training.
  • Prosumer is a person who consumes and produces a product. The term is derived from prosumption, a dot-com era business term meaning "production by consumers".
  • Fossil Fuel is a fuel formed by natural processes, such as anaerobic decomposition of buried dead organisms, containing organic molecules originating in ancient photosynthesis that release energy in combustion.
  • Energy Storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time. A device that stores energy is generally called an accumulator or battery.
  • Electric E-Vehicle (EV) is a vehicle that uses one or more electric motors or traction motors for propulsion. An electric vehicle may be powered through a collector system by electricity from off-vehicle sources, or may be self-contained with a batterysolar panelsfuel cells or an electric generator to convert fuel to electricity.
  • Digitization is the process of converting information into a digital (i.e. computer-readable) format, in which the information is organized into bits.
