How many films with post-apocalyptic themes you've seen in the opening image in which we see a world famous city in the mist of smog, with big and scary industrial chimneys and gray vapor rises everywhere. This hypothetical scenario could become a reality not only in industrial zones but everywhere we turn.
The energy needs of the world are increasing daily and the situation in which we rely on the energy potential of fossil fuels such as coal, oil or gas is completely unsustainable. The speed at which the oil is consumed is totally absurd. It makes a great piece of the pie of fossil fuels, but for every barrel of oil that is found we consumed 8.
During the industrial revolution escalates the use of fossil fuels as drivers of change. It was needed one significant and uncontrolled growth and development of the industry, and when we mature and are responsible as a society it is time to take responsibility for our actions and explore alternative ways of obtaining energy.
It is a green energy that we are talking about. It actually has nothing alternative, it is the most natural way to generate energy. The green energy includes all renewable energy sources.
These are the ones that cannot be exhausted and provide clean energy without harmful effects on the environment and our health. Wind, water and sun are mostly drivers of this, not so new ways of using energy.
All renewable energy sources are somehow indirectly connected with solar radiation. Our Sun sends to Earth 15,000 times more energy than it needs, so we just need to know how to use it and transform it in the forms of energy that are necessary for us.
Panic about the energy crisis has forced many governments and communities of countries like the EU to work on their energy plan and increase the percentage of energy that comes from renewable sources.
Although excuses for poor utilization of green energy were that thus can not produce a sufficient amount of energy needed for today's society, for example, the energy potential of wind energy is five times larger than today's total energy production so such claims are completely unfounded.
