We live in a energy hungry world with rapidly growing energy requirements. While there are so many options for generating power, there are very few ways to do it in a way that is both sustainable in the long tern as well as having a low impact on the surrounding environment. This is why increasingly innovative approaches are needed to solve the many energy challenges that exist today.
Solar and wind which are two of the most common renewable energy sources on Earth, have only small percentages of their energy potential tapped into both because there are both social and some technological hurdles to overcome. Still scientists and new startups are investigating other means generating clean power that is scalable. Opposite to figuring out how to generate more power, a fair amount of work has also gone into figuring out how to make our existing technology and products more energy efficient–to make ourselves more lean energy consumers. Highrise residential buildings such as Turnberry Towers is a good example of this leaner energy paradigm.
Our energy woes will likely never go away, but the innovation to generate more and consume less will help soften the growing pains both on us and our surrounding environment. On this site we have a few articles on how you can do your part to become a part of the new energy world that we moving into.
