Many people today agree that greenhouse gas emissions will need to be curbed. The gases that are to blame internationally are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorinated gases. Carbon dioxide is the largest offender and this is principal as a result of the dependence that we have now on fossil fuels for our energy. Burning fossil fuels like coal, gas, and oil releases carbon dioxide into the air at a speed that’s not sustainable as it’s been proven to contribute substantially to global warming.
Governments around the globe have been tasked with placing constraints on greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the percentage of energy coming from renewable technology. Renewable technology will provide clean renewable energy for the long run. Listed below are the top 4 renewable technologies available today and for the long run:
1. Solar Power. The most sustainable source there is. Harnessing the power of sunlight is among the most common renewable approaches. Solar photovoltaic panels and solar thermal panels catch the sun’s rays and convert them to energy in form of energy or energy to warm water. Countries around the globe are turning to solar power and authorities are providing monetary benefits to businesses and homeowners through incentives. Solar panels are becoming more available as more economical and much more effective panels are being manufactured.
2. Biomass. This renewable energy technology is creating heat energy by burning wood, energy plants, industrial waste, and food waste. There’s an argument that burning organic matter will also cause carbon dioxide emissions. On the other hand, the scale and size of this emission shouldn’t be more than that which was taken from the plants during their expansion. Therefore equilibrium is preserved as long as fresh trees and plants are always planted. This is called the Carbon Cycle.
3. Heat Pumps. These basically extract heat from the atmosphere or earth and this energy is used to heat water to heating. There’s a price in the pumps will need to use power to function, but the quantity of electricity demand is lower than that which can be used to warm a house using electricity.
4. Wind Power. There’s been a rise in offshore and onshore wind farms. Wind power is a clean renewable energy resource. Small-scale wind turbines are acceptable for houses and can create enough power to power a house and all of the national appliances inside.
Installing renewable technology into your residence or business will cost cash. The outlay can put off some people and there are a few maintenance checks that are required. On the other hand, the economies to energy bills can be very important. Also, however, the savings in greenhouse gas emissions is worth contemplating.
