British Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell have declared that by 2050, most of the world’s energy needs will be met using alternative or clean energy. Renewable sources like natural gas, wind power and geothermal hot spots are valued for their clean properties.
Wind energy is fast growing in popularity and thanks to recent developments has experienced a surge in production volume, accompanied by a dip in the cost of set-up and expansion. And geothermal energy harvested from the heat of the Earth’s core is ever abundant and produces steam which in turn can drive turbine based devices to generate electricity.
Sustainable energy providers work to supply cities and operational activities like manufacturing with adequate clean power. To further accelerate the process of going green, vendors can use responsibly sourced or ‘sustainable’ materials to update infrastructure. This may include lead free bearings or items like reclaimed wood to replace traditional provisioning.
