01.01.0001 - The Energy Source
We’re very passionate about alternative energy. It’s a resource that is widely available throughout the universe and relatively, we consume so little of it but yet we’re still challenged with how to use it properly and efficiently without any negative side effects.
Alternative energy is any energy source that is an alternative to fossil fuel. These alternatives are intended to address concerns about fossil fuels, such as its high carbon dioxide emissions, an important factor in global warming. Marine energy, hydroelectric, wind, geothermal and solar power are all alternative sources of energy.
The nature of what constitutes an alternative energy source has changed considerably over time, as have controversies regarding energy use. Because of the variety of energy choices and differing goals of their advocates, defining some energy types as “alternative” is considered very controversial.
