A quest for alternative energy sources has become a common phenomenon at every corner of the earth. The stock of fossil fuel will one day come to an end. Moreover, burning this fuel pollutes our surrounding atmosphere. So, there is an urgent need for alternative sources of clean energy. There are several options in this regard. The need is a comprehensive planning and proper implementation of the strategy. Mass campaigns should be arranged to make the general people aware about the benefits of renewable energy.
The Sun is the most powerful and effective source of alternative energy. Solar power guides the air pressure and the tidal waves that are used in wind and hydro-electric plants. Solar power is the key source behind generating free and never-ending electricity. This electricity has become a common energy mode at households in different distant and remote corners across the countries. Solar heater, bulbs, lanterns and other electrical equipment can be activated with solar energy. Even, street lights are being lit with this electricity. One of the key reasons behind the popularity of solar power is that it can be generated at home without any technical knowledge. The time is not far, when it will be utilized to run automobiles.
The rich benefits of renewable electricity can be fully reaped after initial installation investments. The resource efficient apartments are systematically equipped to conserve energy as well as run on less energy utilization than those of traditional buildings. These buildings are designed in line with environment-friendly set ups and they make proper use of the surrounding environment. They are armed with cost-effective equipment and technologies that offer the dividends of lower energy consumption cost, clean and fresh air, and enhanced real estate value. These households are also not dependent on local power stations, and hence unaffected by power shortage. They easily gain attention due to uninterrupted power supply advantage.
In the rural belts, biogas electricity is generating interest among the masses. As, biomass, crops, manure and green waste are easily available in such areas, production of biogas will no doubt gain momentum in the coming times. Ironically in different corners of the world there is still reluctance to accept due to lack of awareness about eco-friendly energy. There is an urgent need for extensive campaign planning on behalf of both government and NGO levels. To make our earth cleaner, energy conservation efforts and renewable energy sources will play major roles in the coming future.
