Considering the fact that we have already consumed a large part of fossil fuel reserves and are far from tapping the nuclear power for our day-to-day energy consumption, hydropower has become a safe and sustainable source of energy. We not just can rely on hydro projects for years, but hydroelectricity is environmentally friendlier source of energy, if compared to nuclear and fossil fuels, as well. Here are some of the numerous benefits of hydroelectricity.
When people think of investing in renewable energy projects or products, they no doubt think of sticking a solar panel on the roof or putting a wind turbine up in the garden. However, whilst these of course are great ways to help the planet, they are far from the only ways to do your bit in the name of going green and investing in renewable energy. Here are some ways in which you can do your part in saving the planet, and how you can save some cash in the process, too! Investing in a trust or fund The government has a number of incentives for households and businesses to […]
While walking, running and doing physical work, we generate kinetic energy but never before it was utilized to power up machines and commercial facilities. The kinetic energy we produce by simple movements can be transferred and converted into usable energy. Coming to think about it, there are several instances where human kinetic energy is used directly, like pedaling a bicycle and churning juices out of sugar canes.
There is a green drive going on in almost every walk of life across the world. Scientists are fast inching towards achieving a major revolution in the way sustainable and green energy is produced through nuclear fusion. Here are some such breakthroughs in nuclear energy that raise hope for clean and green energy:
Two of the largest oil companies in the world, Shell and British Petroleum, have stated that by 2050 renewable energy sources would be catering to 1/3 of global energy needs. Iceland is presently generating complete energy from renewable sources, but a vast majority of the countries still relies on fossil fuels. Here are some of the enterprises and their unique offerings:
Renewable energy is in the limelight all over the world because it is easily replenished. All we need is better technology for generating energy and electricity from the alternative energy sources like sunlight, water, and wind, among others. Hundreds of government and non-government organizations are conducting research to find the most cost effective ways of utilizing renewable energy resources for power.
The demand for renewable energy has increased in the last ten years and new technologies are being implemented for producing electricity from renewable resources. According to a recently published report by International Energy Agency, by 2016, renewable energy resources will be second only to coal in generation of electricity.
Despite much talk regarding the positive impact of alternative energy on the global environment and our life in general, it has not yet been incorporated in modern lifestyle. People are signing petitions to reduce the use of fossil fuels but not adapting alternative energies in their daily life. This strange behavior raises many questions in the mind of the observer.
We all know about the usual contenders in alternative energy: The ever-preppy solar energy, the never there when you need it wind energy, and hot and heavy geothermal. But you’ve never seen alternative energy like this before. Here are a couple of the strangest renewable energies I’ve ever heard.
In a world still recovering from economic depression, it’s easy to see why people are becoming more interested in saving money. Money is a little tighter and the average American researches products and services heavily before they decide to make a commitment and buy it. Also influencing their decision is the growing concern over climate change and ways to mitigate the rising issues associated with it. Switching from gas and electric power to solar power and other alternative energy sources might be one of the ways that you can save money while also decreasing your carbon footprint.
