Energy Distribution

We want to be able to use energy where we need it, so must consider energy distribution. This can include physically transporting fuels, or distributing energy in the form of electricity via the power grid.



Once electricity is generated by the conversion of a different primary energy source, humans transport this electrical energy across distances via the power grid.


Fuels can be moved in solid, liquid, and gas form to distribute energy. The most common means of transporting fuels are pipeline, rail, truck, and ship.
