  • Solar Energy: The Development Of Renewable Energy

    “I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy to wait until oil and coal run out, before we tackle that” (Thomas Edison). Coal was developed in the mid 19 century, since then all used energy was renewable. The United States designed a graph of energy use up until 1990. It shows how gas, oil, and natural gas had the same importance in 1900 as played by solar and wind in 2010. In 1873, experiments with solar energy began to happen because the concerns of running out of coal were brought up. During the 1970s the development of renewable energy was being promoted by environmentalists to stop the use of oil as an energy source. Also, it was around this time that wind turbines and solar panels appeared. Unfortunately, solar panels were too expensive…
