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.
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.
