Alternative energy sources in the future (Part 2)

On the surface of the earth there is a huge source of heat that humans have not exploited and utilized, one of which is heat from volcanoes.

The researchers believe that people can use this abundant source of heat to generate electricity for activities in public places, such as lights on the streets. This is a source of clean, abundant energy and promises to be exploited in the near future.

Energy from wind

Compared with large-scale “windmill” fields, a small-scale wind power generation system can provide enough electricity for each household. The average mini windmill system can produce 1-10kw of electricity, enough to provide the amount of electricity for lighting and other electric devices in a house.

America is one of the countries using wind energy the largest in the world today. Windmills in the US provide about 18,000 megawatts of electricity to at least 5.4 million households living in the country. According to estimates of the US energy agency, by 2030, the windmills will provide an amount of electricity accounting for about a fifth of the electricity that the country uses. Currently in the world, many countries are focusing on exploiting this energy source. In addition to the US, Denmark is also a country that uses a large amount of wind power with 20% of the energy that its people currently use is supplied by windmill fields.

Solar

There are two ways in the world to collect solar energy: mirror systems that focus sunlight to heat water to create steam that drives generating turbines, and a second way to use solar panels is to convert heat energy into electricity. Both methods are currently being used and are very effective.

Nuclear energy

The developed countries in the world are currently using this type of energy mainly and in the future, nuclear energy will still be the number one priority for many countries in the world. In the US alone, this country is currently planning to build 100 new nuclear reactors to power one-fifth of the nation’s population.
