Alternate Energy


Recommended Posts

Although the traditional sources of energy like the fossil fuels and the crude oil has been found to be costly and replete with negative aspects, they still form a dominant source of energy. This can be attributed to the lack of awareness among the people about the other alternate energy sources like the renewable sources of energy. To promote the usage of renewable energy and to tap the huge potential present in the renewable energy sector, the world energy research was formed.


The use of fossil fuels has resulted in many negative consequences. It has led to severe pollution, political conflict, economic control and total dependence of countries that lack this natural resource. Now the countries are seeking to control this blind dependence on fossil fuels by adopting alternate sources of energy for their energy needs.


Over the years, many alternative renewable energy technologies have been researched and developed. These include solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal energy as well as many others. These sources produce energy by converting the mechanical energy present in them to kinetic energy.
