Distinguish between high-quality energy and low-quality energy, and give an example of each. Relate these terms to energy efficiency

High-quality energy is energy that can be converted to work, with a high conversion efficiency. Two examples are electrical energy and gravitational potential energy. Two examples of low-quality energy are the heat in the ocean, and the kinetic energy of water waves.

Thanks!
