Alternative energy means energy that is produced from other sources than . Fossil fuels vs renewable energy.
Alternative energy means energy that is produced from other sources than fossil fuels. Currently, fossil fuels represent the primary energy supply. Around 500 million years ago was when the major groups of animals appeared on Earth. The latest fossil fuels, like lignite coal and peat, started forming about 5 million years ago, during the Pliocene Period. The US Department of Energy indicates that the total world energy demand amounts to approximately 400 quadrillion British Thermal Units on an annual basis. This means that fossil fuels amount to 88% of the world’s energy needs, namely 350 quadrillions BTUs.

Lower emissions, lower fuel prices and the reduction of pollution are all advantages that the use of alternative fuels can often provide. Here we examine eleven of the most prominent alternative fuel sources and look at the benefits they offer and potential for increased uptake in the coming years. The Best Examples of Alternative Energy Sources. 11. Hydrogen Gas. Unlike other forms of natural gas, hydrogen is a completely clean burning fuel. The major issue with this form of alternative energy is that it is mostly derived from the use of natural gas and fossil fuels. As such, it could be argued that the emissions created to extract it counteract the benefits of its use.
The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy will not occur overnight, and it will not . Alternative sources of energy can become a satisfactory substitute for fossil fuels if we put as much effort and genius in the effort as we did in producing the first atomic bomb.
The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy will not occur overnight, and it will not escape recurring setbacks. Nevertheless, renewables are likely to replace fossil fuels as the dominant source of electrical power well before mid-century as well as make giant strides in other areas such as transportation. The most satisfactory single alternative would be hydrogen fusion but that quasi-miracle may be beyond our capability.
CALGARY - One of the United Conservative Party’s first acts is to create a brand new task force to find a replacement for the oil sands as the erratic, short term linchpin of Alberta’s economy. We have too many fossil-fuel power plants to meet climate goals.
