Abstract

The energy necessary for end-use has different forms (mechanic, luminous, electric, thermal); it can be of different origin, and there are different processes that make it available. The primary sources directly available in nature are not always conveniently and efficiently usable in the processes from which the most suitable form of energy for end-use can be obtained. For this reason, in almost all cases, primary sources undergo conversion or transformation processes, whose outcome is indicated by the so-called secondary sources.
