The cost of power generation is increasing and depletion of non-renewable sources is of great concern. We must continue efforts to improve technologies of renewable power to reduce the cost of infrastructure and delivery.
There is absolutely no doubt the entire world is dependent upon the generation and transmission of electricity. Those countries without electrical power are considered third world countries with no immediate hope of improving lives and living conditions and yet there just may be alternatives to generally held methods for generating electricity.
If we look at the definition for renewable energy, we see the following:
Renewable energy is derived from natural processes that are replenished constantly. In its various forms, it derives directly from the sun, or from heat generated deep within the earth. Included in the definition is electricity and heat generated from solar, wind, ocean, hydropower, biomass, geothermal resources, and biofuels and hydrogen derived from renewable resources.
We are all familiar with current methodologies for power generation. These are 1.) Hydroelectric, 2.) Nuclear, 3.) Coal-Powered, 4.) Oil-Fired, and 5.) Generation using Natural gas. The graphic below…
