Synopsis
  • This resource includes an interactive map and graphs that show the share of primary energy from hydroelectric power, for countries around the world since 1965.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The interactive provides three different ways for students to explore data (chart, map, table).
  • Students may choose to view data sets for various geographic locations and time periods.
  • Related research and data are linked.
  • The site explains how the data was collected.
Additional Prerequisites
  • Learners need to be familiar with the different sources of energy.
  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.
Differentiation
  • There are other related interactive maps for other sources of energy.
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

The resource visualizes relative share of energy production from hydropower from different countries, although in the map, some countries data were not available for 2019. Datasets were normalized with a conversion factor of 277.778 and this resource is suitable for teaching.
