From the sun to wind power, from nuclear plants to electricity, energy is an amazing resource that powers our world. Discover the fascinating story of energy and what it is with DK Eyewitness Books: Energy.

Learn about how plants convert sunlight into energy through photosynthesis and explore how energy has opened up lines of communication from morse code and telegraphs to GPS and communication satellites.
