Energy Efficiencies, Improve Energy Efficiencies, Renewable Energy Sources

We live in the Energy Age – imagine life in the 21st Century in most developed nations without the benefits of abundant and economical energy.  But no resource on this Earth is really inexhaustible – and our traditional fossil fuel sources are not without limits.  The world’s oil supplies are being depleted at a rapid rate.  And more expensive (to extract, process, transport and distribute).  There are still many nations without abundant and affordable energy.  As more nations industrialize and modernize their systems, the demands made on the world’s fossil fuel supplies will place stress on things energy-related and on global supplies.

The hot topics today in energy include reduction of use, conservation of existing supplies, energy efficiencies, and especially alternative sources of energy.  While the world goes on using traditional fossil fuels, the race is on to harness natural and renewable energy sources – solar, geo-thermal, wind, tidal, and other “clean” technologies.  This section of Accountability Central brings you news and updates, research and insights, commentary and opinion, and more information you can use on Energy topics.
