An exciting view of the future of energy production
I wish humans lived longer – it’s an exciting time to be alive.
There are more alternative energy sources in use now than ever before, fighting to free us from our dependence on non-renewable resources. With more than seven billion people on the planet and global warming a reality, these technologies are being developed just in time.
Solar power is becoming more efficient, and not just with panels. Mirrors are used to focus light to boil water, creating steam that powers turbines. Hydroelectricity needs a river and tidal power needs ocean tides and currents to harness energy from the flow of water.
Biomass plants use methane created from the breakdown of plant and animal material. Wind powers turbines with a low environmental impact, and geothermal power plants convert heat from the earth itself into power.
Nuclear plants are controversial, and while they offer large amounts of energy, safety and storage concerns make this a less attractive option. Thankfully there are many others, and we’re sure to see them continue to grow in popularity in the coming years.
Big things are happening, and I’m looking forward to seeing how these innovations will continue to revolutionize energy production.
