Most of the energy being consumed worldwide is produced from fossil fuels. Despite all the consequences we know, it increases the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere and contributes to global warming. Our planet cannot sustain the current rate at which this polluting energy is being consumed.
To reduce this dependency on fossil fuels, there are different solutions that are available. Reducing our consumption is one of them and turning to renewable energy solutions is another.
There are many ways to produce clean and renewable energy. Hydroelectricity is indispensable. Other energy sources, such as solar and wind power, are becoming more widespread despite their intermittency, and challenges with compatibility and storage.
In this technology era, innovations such as connected devices, intelligent distribution networks, digital exchange platforms, as well as data collection and processing capacity are key solutions to facilitate energy management. These various technological innovations are creating new possibilities.
Ultimately, the responsible use of energy, more energy-efficient buildings and the new age of electric transportation will help ensure sustainable energy solutions for future generations.
