Eco Wave Power Alternative Energy Source

Hug a Tree with Me

The use of alternative energy is imperative if we wish to slow down and reverse the environmental damage caused by traditional fuel sources. Alternative energy refers to energy derived from sources other than petroleum and other such fossil fuels. The alternative sources needs to be as reliable and efficient as the predecessor without encouraging negative environmental issues. The solution is clean energy.

Alternative Energy Gets a Hand With a Microbe That Converts Electricity into Methane

Eco Friendly Daily

You might wonder that the reverse would have better for an energy starved world. But look at it this way – alternative energy sources like solar and wind have long struggled with feasible ways to store the energy they generate during the day for use at night. Does it defeat the purpose of using greenhouse reducing alternative energy in the first place? The use of microbes negates this and gives a low cost option for efficient transfer of energy.

The Dark Side of Alternative Energy

Eco Friendly Daily

Wind turbines are hailed as a environmentally friendly source of renewable energy. Many bird species migrate along traditional routes, known as flyways; birds expend less energy flying where winds updraft, making longer distances more manageable. If wind-energy projects are located in sensitive habitat, the damage is magnified. And while gales will continue to blow and generate power, there are hidden costs.
