Synopsis

We have come a long way in developing societies that have electricity and the power necessary to fuel vehicles and for industry to be successful. However, all of these efforts rely upon the use of energy source that comes from fossil fuels which are found in the ground and have to be processed in order for us to have that fuel and that electricity. They are known as coal, natural gas, and oil.

The problem is that we rely on these forms of energy way too much for our own good. Change is so important because this type of energy source isn’t one that we will be able to replace. When it is gone it is gone and that is the reality of the situation.

Learning about the various types of renewable energy is a great way to get a person thinking about changes they can implement. The concept of renewable energy embraces the ability to use the resources we naturally have, but that we will never run out of. This process involves taking these types of natural resources and turning them into a product we can use for power. This way we can continue to have all the benefits we want without destroying the Earth.

In this book, you will learn the basics of all the possible renewable energy sources. You’ll get information on what we currently get from renewable energy, the high cost to contend with, what the limitations are, and what we can expect into the future.
There have been some significant efforts made in promoting renewable energy sources. It is estimated that about 13% of our current energy is the result of renewable energy. But, there is still a great deal of information to be collected, technology to be evaluated and research that needs to be completed so that these alternative power sources can evolve beyond what we are able to see take place in our own lifetime.
