The New Energy Transition

energydata The New Energy Transition

Green energy may have finally gotten the push it needed to get enough support to go from an interesting idea, to how we live our daily lives. But this kind of change won’t happen overnight, and some key industries look to benefit from the long awaited fall of fossil fuels.

What better way to visibly reduce our consumption of fossil fuelsthan by driving electric cars, which would obviously become the car ofchoice under a reduction, or high price, of gasoline to power ourtraditional vehicles.

Solar power has already been on the fast track in many statesrecently, and by many nations around the world. Right behind solar power has been wind, which saw its strongest year of growth last yearaccording to AWEA.Although still in their infancies, both solar and wind power should be a reliable way to repower America, given the proper power grid toincorporate these kinds of energy sources.

Biofuels are quite green in the sense that they are very renewable.We grow the fuel, so the carbon we burn already came from theenvironment, which basically equals a net 0 carbon emission fuel source.

The last 2 energies aren’t exactly green, but they are far less worse than traditional fossil fuels. Natural gas power is the cleanest fossil fuel to burn, so chances are natural gas will become more widespread,and its known reserves tapped. And the final unlikely benefactor of thenew energy revolution is nuclear energy. Which despite its traditionalskepticism is still a very low emission energy source, and will likelybe expanded alongside other energies.

Yet it is with wind, solar and natural gas that the first step intoour new energy economy can be seen. And it’s up to the growth of solarand wind to bring about the energy production to finally ween ourselvesoff of fossil fuels. So do your part to encourage the growth of theseindustries, it’s a good solution for us all.
