Wind Power Animation

This animation, from the US Department of Energy, discusses the advantages of wind power, the workings of a wind turbine, and wind resources in the United States. It also describes how wind power is used in small- and large-scale applications.

Adventures in Energy - An Interactive Look at Oil and Natural Gas

This interactive learning tool from the American Petroleum Institute offers a primer on oil and natural gas by providing several animations with explanatory notes covering topics such as: what are oil and natural gas, exploration and production, processing, oil tankers, refining, pipelines, and oil and natural gas in your life. Each section has several parts and includes a short quiz at the end.

Oil Formation

This short animation, part of the Absorb Chemistry for GCSE collection, offers a step-by-step labeled animation of how coal forms and how surveyors find and survey oil domes (i.e. seismic methods).

Wind-to-Hydrogen Project

This site describes the National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Geology of Hydrocarbons Visualizations

This site has over two dozen animations about hydrocarbons as energy sources, including where resources are found, the amount of each energy source/type used in the US and in the world, how hydrocarbons are formed, and how they are found by exploration geologists.
