  • Sustainable Renewable Energy In The United States

    United States use of energy, there have been millions and millions of dollars spent on energy. Energy is needed to provide the basic needs such as: food, production, transportation, housing manufacturing, construction, and many other things. We depend on so many things, especially in the U.S. Our biggest energy source are the fossil fuels and we are no longer limiting the amounts of how much we use up. I would say we have reached a certain peak in which we have used up all of our fossil fuel…

  • Solar Energy: The Benefits Of Renewable Energy

    Energy plays an important part in social and economic develop. As the oil price sharply increases, it stimulates the step of researching the renewable energy field. The advantages of using renewable energy reduce the dependence on fossil fuel resources and carbon emission to the atmosphere. The total incoming solar radiation is about 3.8 million EJ per year and it can satisfy the entire energy demand if utilise correctly [2]. The use of solar energy is usually identified in two contexts: passive…

  • Solar Energy In China

    One of the main concerns surrounding solar energy is the endangerment of birds that pass over these solar farms. These birds, including threatened and endangered species, often mistake the reflective solar facilities for a body of water, a phenomenon known as the “lake effect.” Honing in on these water bodies, many birds have been fatally singed or crippled due to these desert solar power plants (Upton, 2014). These plants produce a solar flux that is the sum of the focused rays of light…

  • Argumentative Essay On Alternative Energy

    etc. energy is something that is used all twenty four hours of the day, this makes it easier for energy to be wasted. “The U.S. has an energy efficiency of 42 percent, which means 58 percent of all the energy we produce is wasted!” ( Battaglia, Sarah) There have been very creative ideas of evolving the currently used energy that is at this point depleting, but they have not been put into enough use. Electricity in this generation needs to become more clean and safe, but these attributes haven’t…
