Renewable Energy Sources. There is a kind of energy that it’s inexhaustible. This means that it’s expected to last for a very long period of time, enough for human life existence. However, this doesn’t mean that it will exist for an eternity. According to Parris, “The prospect of climate change has the world searching for alternatives to fossil fuel to keep our homes warm, our factories humming, and our cars moving”. (Parris). Renewable energy is its name. Currently, the world isn’t getting enough energy from these sources. Before people see its use everywhere (in all around the world), it’s going to take plenty of time. These unlimited founts are used because there are people that…show more content…
This energy is an energy obtained from the sunlight, which is a natural resource. The sun, every day, is constantly releasing power that can be used in two different ways: electrical and thermal. This energy source is the cleanest one. It doesn’t generate pollution (not atmospheric emissions); it’s a renewable energy fount, indeed. It needs a little maintenance. Some disadvantages of solar power source are that it only works with sunlight. If we stay for a long time period without sunshine, by using solar energy, this will be a serious problem. The price of the process to obtain this type of energy is very inflated at the moment. Another disadvantage is its low production, so it is not too…show more content…
Hydroelectric power or hydropower is the energy obtained from the flowing water of a reservoir that is released into turbines; when those turbines spin, the electricity is produced. Hydropower is a renewable energy source which its process is very clean. It’s not expensive to get produced, except for the cost of the infrastructure. Some disadvantages are that the obtained energy from these sources is not used for many individuals. Moreover, it has emissions of methane and carbon dioxide, so it’s not as clean as it seems. Hydroelectric energy can be produced in only some places; then, only local people can get energy from it. Furthermore, we can mention that hydropower production may alter the ecosystem and kills
