Renewable energy, the need of the day

With the ever-growing population and its craving for energy, fossil fuels are on the verge of being finished. Fossil fuels are the major source of our energy requirements for almost all day-to-day activities. The shorter supplies of natural fuels like coal and petroleum have led the world in danger also because the burning of these fuels release carbon dioxide, which is responsible for the increase in the Planet’s temperature, also called as the “Green House Effect”. Renewable energy, the need of the day

Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of Geothermal Energy

Although much has been said and written about geothermal energy sources, not many exactly know what it is, where it comes from or what are the pros and cons of using such energy. It is a known fact that core of the earth is in a molten state. The heat from this core is projected to the earth’s surface, and is distributed evenly across it by what are called geological aka geothermal layers in between. The heat that comes from these layers is tapped into reservoirs, which in turn are used to produce energy for various sources. Thus, the energy produced is called geothermal energy. And here are some of […]

Reasons for the popularity of geothermal energy

Nowadays, people are becoming more aware about the environmental impact of fossil fuel energy. Thus, people are looking at alternative sources of energy, which are eco friendly. One of the promising alternatives is the geothermal energy, which makes use of the heat beneath Earth’s surface. Many of the geothermal spots are around hot springs, volcanoes and geysers and it is quite easy to harness this form of energy. Let us now look at some of the reasons to look at geothermal energy as a viable alternative. Reasons for the popularity of geothermal energy

Energy sources to empower the future of human race

Nature has provided us with abundant natural resources for producing energy. Our duty is to recognize and utilize them appropriately. Stored non-renewable energy sources like gas, coal and oil will soon get finished. According to well-researched data, the coal, natural gas and petroleum resources will be finished in about next 70 years. Precautionary measures have to be taken from now, so that we are not forced to go back to the dark ages. If the renewable sources of energy are not used properly then we will fall in great trouble. Scientists and researchers around the globe have started coming up with brilliant and unique ideas for utilizing the unconventional energy […]

Future Perfect: Megacities powered by wave energy

What’s happening right now? There has been an increased use of non-recyclable resources to generate energy and now that these resources have started depleting so fast, people have been turning toward newer and natural sources of energy, such as solar and wind. Governments in several countries have been investing in energy generation projects through natural resources. In this line, we always need more efficient and cleaner power sources that could meet the global energy requirements, without depending on non-renewable energy sources. One such development that has been taking place is in the area of wave energy that is transported by ocean surface waves. Future Perfect: Megacities powered by wave energy

Five sources of alternative energy that you should consider using

Nature is full of surprises. It has given us essential resources with the help of which we have come so far and progressed so much. Though nature has played such a vital role in developing human civilization we have caused environmental pollution through our activities. The use of non-renewable resources for generating power affects nature adversely and increases the rate of pollution. To reduce environmental pollution alternative sources of energy like solar power, tidal power, wind power and bio fuels are being used. There are plenty of other alternative energy resources in the nature surrounding us. If used appropriately these unconventional yet natural energy resources can change the way we […]

The Big Question: Can the world really ditch fossil fuels?

Most of the fossil fuels like coal, petroleum and natural gas are formed over millions of years, so we have only limited resources available around the world when it comes to fossil fuels. Humans have been consuming these non-renewable sources of energy at a fast rate. Thus, many of these resources are close to losing all their stock during our lifetimes. In such a situation, there is a need to utilize renewable alternative sources of energy that can replace fossil fuels. The Big Question: Can the world really ditch fossil fuels?
