The Future Of Green Energy

Existing type of renewable energy
The sun is the most powerful natural energy source on the planet. Every day, 365 days per year The sun gives us energy in the form of light and heat all year long. A major part of this energy remain unused, while instead we burn carbon fuels, which in trun is become scarce and therefore more expensive to provide. The matter will only worsen for those who carry on to rely on fossil fuels, we cannot wait any longer and must use as much as possible this renewable energy.

Solar Heating
Typically you will get about 80% saving of that electricity that your electric geyser will use from your solar water heater. Those consumers that can afford it are turning to solar systems
Not many people have heard of the heat pump, a reliable and exciting renewable. Its biggest selling point is that it costs you much less upfront. With the heat pump you have a payback period of less than two years. With the solar panel you get a payback of in the zone of about four years and with the cheap solar panel in the region of about six years.

Buying a solar system may take about 5-8 years to pay itself, but taking advantage of federal tax credits and state, it may be paid much quicker. Solar water heaters also last much longer than gas or electric water heaters. Until your have fully paid your system, you are also investing in your environment and the planet.

Wind Turbine
Probably the second most fashionable residential source of energy efficient is the home wind turbine. Wind energy, like solar, takes advantage of a natural phenomenon to produce green energy, with few costs after the first installation.

Green Energy Lighting
To some, the phase out of the standard light bulb that has served us so well since almost the dawn of the electrical age is nothing but an inconvenience. To others, it is a long overdue and essential step in reducing carbon emissions and slowing the pace of climate change. To the electrical supplier it could be either of the above.
But one thing is certain, whatever your personal standpoint it is also a sales opportunity.

The commonly used metric for comparing green energy lighting is lumens of output per watt of electrical input. This method is appropriate for omni-directional bulbs such as traditional A-shape lamps and spiral CFLs.

What will happen. I think energy efficient may create some jobs in the short term. However, I understand that these jobs would be temporary, that once the windmills or solar panels or whatever they come up with are installed, theres little or no maintenance on them, there will be no reason to retain all employees. I do think we should develop energy efficient in more efficient ways than we have, and for that, a profit will need to be ensured after project completion in order to secure major investment.
Energy saving is probably looking at making up 10 per cent or so, maybe a little less than that, of our energy mix over time.
