According to the Energy Information Administration (solar vs coal 2), 15 years ago, the electricity industry made a huge shift towards renewable sources of energy because of its cheap availability and increasing popularity. The author also compared the coal and the solar energy of at this time as a new electricity generation. Both solar and coal produce energy, but solar energy is more beneficial because of its efficiency, construction cost, and is environmentally safe and healthy. Everyone needs energy for various purposes. The first thing to consider while choosing the energy for us is its efficiency.
Using wind energy would be the best way to solve the world’s pollution problem that cause by burning of fossil fuel. The reason why I personally think that is the best way to solve the pollution is because the wind energy (wind turbine) only uses wind to produce electricity. Wind energy is plentiful, renewable, clean and produce no harmful gas. The effects to the environment are less problematic than the other nonrenewable energy source. It is also cheaper than coal or burning gas.
It has a lot of positive aspects both economically as socially, because it can be used individually and is also renewable. It is also socially excepted because it does not do damage to the environment compared to nuclear power plants which has a possibility of leaking, and people do not mind the way solar panels look compared to wind turbines. Therefor I think solar energy is the best alternative energy both socially and
Politics- Perspective 2: Renewable energy should not replace fossil fuels because of its many benefits. Environment- When fossil fuels (Oil, Coal etc.) burn, they release many pollutants into the atmosphere and they also release carbon which mixes with oxygen to make carbon dioxide (CO2). The only thing that CO2 is good for is plants in general, because plants absorb CO2 in the day to produce oxygen. Economic- Fossil fuels are very important for the world economy as they take a large percentage of exports.
Emily Hois states solar panels are quickly becoming far more efficient than fracking and is one of the best alternatives. • Fracking is cheaper than solar panels. • However, in the long run fracking will become more expensive (Woodford, 2016). • Solar panels are cleaner and saves more money than fracking in the long run. 2.
Although it is a valid point that Fossil Fuels are easier to power America with due to years of experimentation, the environmental drawbacks out way the gain. Essentially, if America invested more into experimentation with renewable energy it could be perfected and suited for the growing need. For this reason, opponents argue that it will ultimately be more cost effective to invest in the development of sustainable energy. Furthermore, renewable energy is cheaper to sustain once properly integrated with global infrastructure. Ultimately, Renewable energy (with enough effort) can potentially keep up with energy
Now, not only the big cities and fancy towns, but small villages and remoe areas can also get cheap electricity supply. Cheapest resource: Did you know that very first wind turbine, that generated electricity was invented in 1888? From 1888 till today, wind turbines are gradually improving in many aspects. Initially it was an expensive energy resource, but now, it is eventually coming down in price, making it more desirable. Government is supporting the wind turbines as they are the cheapest energy sources, so government is putting subsidies to reduce the cost of installation.
Nuclear energy is an environmentally friendly, green energy source. A small amount of fuel can produce large amounts of nuclear energy. This is quite an economically beneficial source of energy, but with all the benefits that it derives, there are also severe disadvantages that come along. The cost of nuclear power is competitive and stable. The cost of nuclear fuel is a small part of the price of a nuclear kilowatt-hour, whereas fossil fueled power, especially oil and gas, depend on the market prices which go up and down every month.
Less Dependency on Foreign fuel: Reliance on overseas companies for non renewable energy sources like fossil fuels can be decreased, if electricity from wave energy can be unsheathed to its highest level. Not only it will assist to make the air free from pollution but can also create an opportunities to employ millions of people in this sector. 3.
Nature’s Home Organisation also recommended wind energy as a replacement for coal. Wind energy, similar to solar energy, is renewable, causes no pollution and cannot be over-consumed. (Maehlium, 2015) This means the duration of the usage wind energy is very long. However, the wind is an irregular source of energy as there isn’t wind blowing at one certain area 24/7, but then again the price of wind energy have decreased over 80% since 1980 and they keep decreasing. (Maehlium, 2015) This means although the certainty of power produced by wind energy is not constant, the certainty that it will be cheaper to operate and manage than coal in the future is high.
