Clean Technology Verticals
Clean technology is the process of using natural resources/ tools, technology and processes in a more sustainable way.
Sustainability is a process, a journey which has to be cultivated earnestly involving a lot of lifestyle changes. Basically, sustainable energy is the provision of energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainable energy sources are most often regarded as including all renewable sources, such as plant matter, solar power, wind power, wave power, geothermal power and tidal power. It usually also includes technologies that improve energy efficiency.
The four nonrenewable energy sources used most often are: 1) Oil and petroleum products — including gasoline, diesel fuel, and propane 2) Natural gas 3) Coal 4) Uranium (nuclear energy)
Because fossil fuel combustion represent a global environmental problem, the choice is to:
- Invest in discovery of new oil reserves (e.g. offshore, shale oil)
- Invest in clean coal technology
- Invest in alternative energies
Much emphasis is on alternative/ renewable energy these days because they are often described as clean and green forms of energy as they have minimal environmental impact compared to fossil fuels. We can also use it repeatedly without depleting it.
- Renewable energy is any energy source that is naturally replenished, like that derived from solar, wind, geothermal or hydroelectric action.
- Energy produced from the refining of biomass is also often classified as renewable.
- Renewable energy is also more sustainable use of finite sources of energy. Coal, oil or natural gas is finite energy sources.
The alternative energy revolution is not happening in isolation. It is part of a much bigger movement – the sustainability movement.
