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.
It seems like every other day the words ‘Climate Change’ and ‘Clean Energy’ are being thrown about in the political arena. Some admit to the growing threat while others just ignore it. Nothing seems to be getting done. One of the reasons for this is that the people invested in the same kind of things that are destroying our planet, are the ones with their mouths to the politicians’ ear. The politicians, in turn, have their hands in the pocket of the polluters. If they admit that climate change is real and happening, then they have to admit that they are the cause. They don’t see a profit from climate […]
For a very long time the human race has been dependent on non-renewable energy sources. Electricity is a vital necessity of our modern human civilization. To produce electricity a huge amount of non-renewable energy resources like coal are used. The electricity producing procedures cause severe environmental pollution. We need energy for running commercial factories and household appliances.
Fossil fuels are on the decline and we have to reduce our dependence on them. Renewable energy sources provide us with viable option to replace fossil fuels as our energy source in the future. In the following sections, we will look at some such renewable energy sources that can hold the key to a future devoid of fossil fuel energy.
Arizona is all set to get its first Solar Wind Downdraft Tower in the City of San Luis. The city council of San Luis, Arizona, collectively approved “Development and Protected Development Rights Agreement,” which assures the necessities requires for the development of the first solar wind downdraft tower in the city.
Recently, there is a lot of attention that is being drawn to green energy or alternative energy sources. The world is struggling to keep pace with the spiralling increase in demand for fuel and with global warming creating havoc; countries are trying to seek cleaner and greener fuels. Green energy has immense potential and is the future of tomorrow as it will be a source of clean energy that can resolve many issues related to both the climate and economy of the world.
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”.
