The Reality of Not Investing in Renewable Energy

The Reality of Not Investing in Renewable Energy 1

Let’s look at some of the effects of humanity’s inability to adapt to the use of Renewable Energy, so far. Poor air quality can kill. Ozone pollution can cause respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, throat inflammation, chest pain, and congestion, which results in innumerable deaths each year. Water pollution is purely genocidal. On average, it accounts…

The Role of Hydroelectric Power

The Role of Hydroelectric Power 2

What is Hydroelectric Power? Flowing water creates energy that can be captured and turned into electricity. This is called hydroelectric power. The most common type of hydroelectric power plant uses a dam on a river to store water in a reservoir. Water released from the reservoir flows through a turbine, spinning it, which in turn activates…

Electricity Can Be Harnessed from Your Recycled Waste

Electricity Can Be Harnessed from Your Recycled Waste 3

Recycled Waste Can Be Turned into Renewable Energy When most people consider renewable energy, they think mostly along the lines of solar, wind and geothermal energy. However, there is another very important source of potential renewable energy that is produced daily, around the globe – garbage. The consumption habits of the modern consumer lifestyle are…

The Limitless Power of Geothermal Energy

The Limitless Power of Geothermal Energy 4

What is Geothermal Energy? Geothermal energy is the thermal energy that is generated by, and stored within, the Earth itself. In fact, it is the primary source of energy that determines the mean temperature of all matter on Earth. The innermost core of the Earth is a fairly heated, but solid, ball of iron and…

The Benefits of Harvesting Biomass Energy

The Benefits of Harvesting Biomass Energy 5

What is Biomass Energy? Biomass energy is organic matter harvested from living, or only very recently deceased, organisms. This can include logs or leafy matter fallen from trees. Biomass can also be the leftover waste materials from any number of human activities. This, depending on the source of the energy, can be converted into a…

What Can Solar Power Do?

What Can Solar Power Do? 7

What is Solar Power? Quite simply, Solar Power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. It can happen in two main different ways; directly, using what is called Photovoltaics; or, indirectly, using what is called Concentrated Solar Power. Photovoltaics converts light into an electrical current using certain light sensitive chemicals that produce voltage when exposed…

How Can We Harness the Power of Rainwater?

How Can We Harness the Power of Rainwater? 8

What is Rainwater Power? Imagine the average house or apartment, which is most always equipped with a rain gutter for water runoff. Now, consider turning the rainwater that runs into that gutter into electricity. Assume that when it is raining, water is collected in the gutter that surrounds a building’s roof. Now, instead of funnelling…

What Can Wind Power Do?

What Can Wind Power Do? 9

What is Wind Power? Wind power is, very easily, available by the Earth’s natural airflow. Turbines primarily produce this energy through mechanical power generators that produce electricity. Wind power is a great alternative to burning fossil fuels. It is plentiful, accessible globally, pollutant free and can operate without the use of water. It also needs…
