Renewable and Green Energy: The Future

By: Matt Harris


Have you ever wondered if what you know about energy is accurate? Consider the following paragraphs and compare what you know to the latest info on energy.
Economists from Jevons onwards have noted with perverse satisfaction that as economy cheapens, that cheapness extends the market, and that measures of conservation or economy therefore increase, or at least do not diminish, the consumption of energy?
Solar photovoltaic systems are moving beyond residential applications to large, megawatt-scale projects for utility and industrial plants. Toshiba will secure orders for large solar power generation systems by drawing on its competitive advantages. Solar energy is created by heat and light radiated from the Sun. The majority of renewable energy sources come directly or in-directly from the sun.
Renewables are more expensive. But the question is, more expensive than what? Renewable energy, "has been shown to generate three to five times more jobs per dollar, or yuan, invested, than comparable investments in fossil fuels". Similarly, recycling creates 10 times as much employment as dumping rubbish in landfills, while the International Labour Organisation reports that worldwide move to energy-efficient buildings could create "tens of millions of new jobs".
So far, we've uncovered some interesting facts about energy. You may decide that the following information is even more interesting.
Geothermal energy, Wind energy, Solar energy, Nuclear Power energy, and Hydroelectric energy are some of the examples of various types of Green energy. Though some people may differ on the inclusion of nuclear energy because it is harmful to individual if it goes uncontrolled. Geothermal will serve as the JV manager for the joint venture's development activities. Geothermal energy can provide heat and hot water for domestic use through ground source heat pumps .
Coal is here to stay. I wish it wasn't so, however the world gets 50% of its electricity from burring coal. Coal is the dirtiest fuel polluter. It dumps mercury, arsenic and other dangerous chemicals into streams and this is why the dirtiest trick that governments play on their citizens is the pretence they are working on "clean coal." It's true.
Solar power heats homes heated homes and cools server farms. Utility companies use wind power to deliver power to customers and offer energy credit programs to reduce carbon footprints and fund renewable energy providers. Solar-generated electricity is often characterized by increased electricity distribution costs due to the presence of relatively small generation sites in close proximity to end-users, which contrasts with the common approach of building fewer large generation plants farther away. Solar energy is most used among all the renewable energy sources. Indeed solar energy has bright future, but behind all the brightness solar energy has dark side too.
