Renewable Energy Has Great Potential for the Future
The recent turn of events suggest that change is imminent. Unless we bring about a change in the world, we might be inching closer to a disaster. If you have not been following the news, all you need to look at is the change in your location’s weather patterns. It is not the same way as it used to. In fact, some places use to have consistent weather pattern, but that has all been perturbed. That is why calls for renewable energy have picked up.
There are other reasons too. Non-renewable energy, as the name suggests, will deplete with the passage of time. There will be a moment in time when they will be depleted. That reflects in the rising oil prices around the world. Moving towards green energy will give us a break from these constantly rising prices.
So, what exactly do we mean by renewable energy sources? These are those energy sources that can be renewed. In other words, these are sources of energy that can be naturally replenished over the course of time. Let us consider the case of wind. If we use wind to generate energy, we can keep doing it without worrying about depletion. Same is the case of sun. We get sun light, and if we can use it for generation of energy we will be saving money. There are some other sources of green energy too. These include water, biomass sources, and even geothermal sources. These are all highly recommended because they can be replenished through a natural process.
Compared with the renewable source of energy, they are cheaper. This is obvious because there is no worry about depletion of these sources. Pricing works on the basis of demand and supply, and there is untapped supply of renewable sources. Moreover, they are obviously better for the earth. They do not lead to any kind of pollution, and will be of assistance in controlling pollution around the globe.
The only disadvantage of these sources of energy right now is that there is a lack of infrastructure. One has to find a way of developing infrastructure, so that these sources can be extensively used by people from all walks of life.
