Renewable Energy: A Greener Solution for Global Energy Production
Renewable energy sources are delivering new solutions for global energy productions while raising the utility-scale than ever.
FREMONT, CA: Based on the present efforts by the renewable energy industries, the relevant projects are on the verge to dominate the global electricity production. The power projects resource their energies from nature, causing less harmful impacts on our environment. The initiative varies on the specific technologies, the geographic location, and many more. By minimizing the potential environmental hazards, renewable energy sources become a more significant portion of the utility landscape.
Sustainable projects such as hydropower, solar power, geothermal power, biopower, and wind power are always in highlight. The most widely-used renewable power source, the hydropower accounts more than 1000GW, which is over 16% of the world’s net electricity production. A conventional method, like building dams to drive turbines from the water release represents the efforts for the hydroelectricity generation. The second most widely generated renewable source is the wind with the potential to trend shortly. With the global capacity more than 100GW, solar power effectively dominates various sectors form both the large and small scale electricity generation. Following the hydro, wind, and solar, the bio-mass plants fuel the power plants to generate both electricity and biogas. Bio-mass products, especially bio-fuels, wood pellets, and agricultural by-products, help to produce heat and power generation. Likewise, the geothermal sources contribute to generating electricity and direct heat, making it the fifth-biggest renewable source.

The significant adoptions of the renewable sources for the energy generation are due to the elimination of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases or the contribution to global warming. Clean energy is more than just green. The renewable sector offers new jobs, helps in the development of resilient electric grids, creating easy energy access to various countries and surprisingly reduces the electricity bills. Setting the new records in electrical generation, the renewable sources grabbing a lot of attention across the globe.
The global investment market for renewable resources experiences variations by regions, technology, and innovations. The regional investments typically depend on the income and economies of the countries. The investment in renewable energy brings a higher percentage of GDP. In the subject of technology, the dominating sources are solar and wind. The techniques for both the segments mostly get global investments, excluding the hydropower from the top list. Since the investors see immense potential in the renewable energy source industry, the funds and investments fuel the development of innovations in the present and coming days.
The smart energy brings practical and affordable solutions to global energy needs. Today, the utilities are deeply involved in the planning, operations and business models to access significant effects and growing opportunity. The renewable energy ramps up advantages like air pollution reduction, cutting the global warming emissions, creating job opportunities and new industries, diversifying power supply with limitless source, eliminating the dependency on fossil fuels and most importantly, building a cleaner, healthier and protected environment.
