Hydropower

Even though the technology has not been adopted on a large scale yet, this form of energy has a high potential for a high yield, low cost alternative to conventional energy sources. Since 70% of the earth's surface is covered in water, the ocean is an untapped resource whose energy is immense. Studies suggest that under current conditions, it would only take .2% of available ocean space to satisfy global energy needs. With Hydropower there are two main examples that are covered. The first is Tidal Power. The energy is created from the gravitational pull of the sun and the moon. Our tides are constant and limitless.

The energy is harvested by submerging units that have turbines that are turned by underwater currents much like a windmill on land. Using the ocean's natural currents, which are governed by gravitational forces from the sun and the moon, to turn the turbines produces a higher yield of energy than air. The reason for this is that the larger turbines used for wind power require larger surface areas to obtain the same output, whereas the ocean currents and the density of the water push smaller turbines to produce more energy. Strength of this technology lies in the ability to predict currents and where to place underwater "Turbine Farms" where the energy produced can be harvested. Previously this technology had been very expensive to implement but with new advances in the design and turbine technology it has the potential to be a viable source of abundant energy.

Environmentally, Tidal Power is very clean as it does not require fuel, does not produce waste and is all but invisible. By placing the units on the floor of the ocean this does not cause interference with established sea route usage or marine life.

The second source of Hydropower covered is Wave Power. These units sit on top of the water of the ocean and harvest energy by using a cylinder and piston like apparatus. Generally the unit has a buoy component and an anchor. The motion of the naturally occurring waves moves the buoy up and down causing the piston to push and pull air across a turbine. This too is a predictable source of energy since the currents can be watched and the devices can be put into optimal positions.

Wind Power

Wind energy is a reliable, renewable and inexhaustible energy resource capable of providing the world with all of its energy needs. Wind is created when sunlight heats the Earth unevenly, which causes hot air to rise up and cooler air to rush in to replace it, allowing air to move from high pressure to low pressure areas. Utilizing technology that has been used by humans for a very long time Wind Power is the conversion of kinetic energy into mechanical energy through wind turbines. As the turbine turns, it produces energy in a generator and is used to offset current consumption or sent to power grids for distribution.



Biofuel/Biomas

Biomass and Biofuels are a renewable energy source that is derived from plant-based organic materials. Biofuels supply energy such as oil and gasoline that are derived from organic renewable matter as an alternative to fossil fuels. Biofuels are an alternative to traditional fossil fuels due to their flexibility to supplement our current energy needs.

Most Biomass material comes from plants or wood that has either been harvested specifically for this purpose or waste products from producing wood pulp. The second most common Biomass material is from solid waste, where certain landfills have the ability to capture methane gasses escaping from the decaying waste. Methane is just as energy-rich as natural gas. This gas is captured and sold to gas companies who in turn sell it for consumption. It can then be used to generate electricity.

Corn, hemp, switchgrass and sugar cane is used to create Ethanol by fermenting, while materials such as animal fat and vegetable oils can be converted into Biodiesel. Ethanol is typically mixed with fossil fuel to make it burn more efficiently however it can be used as a total replacement for gasoline. Roughly half of Biodiesel producers are able to make Biodiesel from used oils, fats, or used restaurant grease but most Biodiesel today is made from soybean oil. Another benefit is that Biodiesel fuels can be used in regular diesel vehicles with little or no change to the engine. Storage and transport can still use standard diesel tanks and equipment. Biodiesel produces less sulfur oxide than petroleum diesel

Natural Gas


Natural gas is the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels, and its delivery from the source of production to the site of end use is extremely efficient and environmentally friendly "This study affirms that subsidies that incentives consumers to use natural gas directly in their homes and businesses result in major cost savings, while lowering carbon output.

Solar Power

Without the sun, life would not exist on our planet. Every day we use the sun's energy and with Solar Power we can harness the sun's energy to create sustainable, clean energy.

Solar Power is power that is generated from the heat and light from the sun and does not require any other kind of fuel. Starting in the 1970's this technology was adopted by homeowners for water heating and to offset utility costs. This was done by placing panels on the roof of the house and allowing the power cells to channel the sun's boundless energy. At the time however Solar Power was expensive to produce and solar panels were inefficient and would often cost more than they saved. Since then the technology has improved a great deal. Solar Farms are set up where the individual panels can be wired together to pull more power from the sun. The surface area affects how much energy is produced. Hence, the larger a Solar Farm is, the more it can produce.

The primary drawbacks to Solar Power are that the panels do take up a bit of space and can be more expensive than conventional energy sources. However, the amount of U.S. consumption of coal requires plants that take up more space than if the equivalent Solar Power system were to be put in its place.

As far as the Solar Panel technology goes, there are generally two types: Passive and Active. In a passive system the panels are fitted to a spot such as a roof or in an open area for maximum sun exposure and are constructed from materials that can absorb and later release heat via natural air circulation. However with an Active system Photovoltaic's in the cell convert the sun's energy into DC current by pushing electrons through a circuit. The energy is deposited into a battery bank and stored. In the evening time or if sun exposure is reduced by weather, the stored energy from the batteries can be used. From the batteries it can be run though a DC to AC converter for conventional use.

There are also many other benefits to using Solar Power other than just electricity. It can also be used to cook, distill water where potable water may not be readily available, disinfection of heat resistant materials, and other various industrial uses that require large amounts of heat.

Solar Power is an exceptionally profitable option for investors. Over the next few years, growth in this specific energy field will have no comparison. It is one of the most frequently built energy technologies because of its improvements in energy storage. Solar Power has an advantage in that it allows electricity to be produced cleanly in the place where it is consumed and it helps with peak demand, as solar panels can produce electricity when it is most expensive and most needed. Solar Power could provide energy to the whole world. If growth continues as it has been, it could become the prevailing energy source this century. The return on investment could be exponential.


Biogas (anaerobic digestion)


Anaerobic digestion – is a series of processes in which microorganism's breakdown biodegradable waste in the absence of oxygen. Thus creating rich biogas suitable for the production of electricity and also produces purified drinking water.
