Energy Solutions for a Sustainable Lifestyle
Kinetik is just a spelling twist on kinetic. Essentially, energy can be classified simply as either potential or kinetic. Potential energy is energy stored within a physical system. It is called potential energy because it has the potential to be converted into other forms of energy, such as kinetic energy, and to do work in the process. Kinetic energy is the energy that a body possesses by virtue of being in motion. People walking or a car traveling down a road are obvious examples of objects with kinetic energy. Some less obvious examples are air movement (traveling molecules), heat (vibrating atoms or molecules), light (photons flying through space) and electricity (electrons traveling down a wire). All of these are examples of kinetic energy.
Air movement through a house and heat transfer through walls is kinetic. Gas or oil burning in a heating applicance is converting the potential of the fuel into heat kinetic energy and is tehn distributed to your house to keep you warm. The suns rays striking a solar PV panel is kinetic. The electrical voltage that it creates is potential energy until the circuit is closed and the electrons are allowed to flow to become current, then it’s kinetic energy. Light, created by that electrical current, falling on a desk so you can read is kinetic. It is energy in motion or active energy. The name Kinetik Energy Solutions attempts to capture that sense of dynamism. We create thoughtful, holistic solutions for the various forms of kinetic energy in a house.
