We rely heavily on electricity and gas as forms of energy to power our
world. As our consumption of energy in these forms intersects with
rising costs and a dwindling supply, businesses and governments are faced
with the task of finding ways to cut expenditure, as well as harness
alternative means of energy production. The need for "green energy"
which can be extracted, generated, or consumed without negatively
impacting the environment is an important current issue. Promising
sustainable energy solutions include wind power, hydroelectricity, solar
energy, and geothermal energy.
