In Space, Use of Alternative Energy Sources Is Very Useful

Alternative Energy

Is Alternative Energy is the same as Renewable Energy? This may change depending on who you talk to? In our opinion, we decided to say that alternative energy is another type of energy that is not fossil fuel and burns clean, but may not be a renewable source. This means that we may not have unlimited fuel for the future.

Electricity With Lightning Including Other Light Sources and Energy Sources

Renewable Energy

So what is renewable energy anyway? Renewable Energy is an energy source that can never run out or nearly never run out. Unlike some of the fossil fuels that we will eventually mine out of the Earth, Renewable energy sources, such as Solar Energy or Wind Energy, can always be harnessed as long as we still have sunlight and wind.

Fossil Fuel Burning Power Plant From A Far

Fossil Fuels

Fossil Fuels come in many forms including some of the popular fuel sources such as coal, natural gas, and petroleum (crude oil). Most of the power from the United States and most of the world is based on Fossil Fuels. It is a cheap fuel compared to renewable and alternative energy sources, but with new technologies, we are moving towards cleaner and healthier forms of energy and power.

An Underwater Drill Platform for Hunting Down Oil in the Ocean or Sea

Oil-Based Energy

This natural occurring yellow-to-black liquid is found underneath the surface of the Earth in both land and sea. Usually drilled down to, we mine oil in order to refine it into other fuel sources. Starting in the crude oil form, we produce gasoline, diesel, butane, kerosene, fuel oil, jet fuel, and more.

Drill That Hunts for Natural Gas In the Ground to Later Produce Heat and Electricity

Natural Gas Energy

Natural Gas is a much cleaner source of energy than coal, but is still considered a fossil fuel because there is a limited supply. Even though it does produce less carbon emissions than coal, we will not be able to depend on this fuel in the long term. With the increase in recent supply, more natural gas plants have been created to replace coal power plants.

Coal, being a Fossil Fuel, is Used to Produce Energy or Electricity

Coal Energy

Coal is a form of carbon much like a diamond. Even though they are both made of carbon, their structures differ. Coal is a black substance that can be easily found in different parts of the world. Usually mined from the ground, this fossil fuel is one of the cheapest form of energy on the market. Because coal is a fossil fuel, the supply will run out eventually and we will have to depend on another source of energy.

BioMass That is Used to Produce Electricity at a Power Plant

BioMass Energy

Biomass is organic material that comes from plants and animals, therefore, it is considered a renewable source of energy. This source of energy will not run out unless all life on Earth ceases to exist. This biomass is stored energy that was converted from sunlight from our Sun. Usually this is done by Photosynthesis. This Biomass is then burned for its energy.

Plant Using Geothermal Heat to Produce Energy or Electricity

Geothermal Energy

What is Geothermal Energy? Geothermal Energy is heat energy that is stored by the Earth. With the core of the Earth loaded with thermal energy and using conduction, the energy is transferred from the inner parts of the Earth towards the surface. We see this in the form of hot springs and volcanos. Within certain regions that have a constant source of heat and is stable, we can harness this energy to provide heat and power.

Hoover Dam Generating Electricity through Hydropower from Moving River

Hydro/Water Energy

Water Energy or Hydropower is power harnessed from the energy of fast moving water or falling water. The first major use of this hydropower was the watermill, which was used for a variety of reasons. The most common form of Hydroelectric power generation today is the Hydroelectric Dam. There are also other applications on the smaller scale such as for businesses or isolated homes.

Solar Panels are Using Sunlight to Produce Electricity

Solar Energy

Solar Energy comes from the Sun. This is a free source of energy that all life on the planet depends on. Depending on the location, we can harness a certain amount of the solar rays that come from our Sun that natural heats up the Earth.

Wind Farm with Windmills using Wind Turbines to Produce Electricity

Wind Energy

You can enjoy it or you can fear it. It is the wind outside. Around the globe, you will find various wind speeds at different altitudes. If you have an area with enough wind, you can capture that energy and turn it into power. Usually done with a type of turbine, this is a great source of alternative and green energy.

Nuclear Fission Power Plant Producing Energy in the Form of Electricity

Nuclear Energy

Nuclear Energy is considered an alternative form of energy because the amount of fuel available on Earth can last many generations compared to fossil fuels. Nuclear Power does produce a small amount of nuclear waste, but can be safely contained. There are no other emissions other than thermal waste making it a wise choice as an energy source.
