4 Technologies That Could Revolutionize Renewable Energy
The future of renewable energy is looking bright as there is an increased demand for greener solutions to our energy problems. The possibility of renewable energy sources will completely change how we look at energy and the environment. Research into new clean energy areas has increased exponentially, and awareness of the global climate change problem has motivated companies to find some solutions. Some of these technologies are already in place while others are still being researched, but here are four technologies that may revolutionize renewable energy.
1. Wind and Solar Technology
Wind and solar technologies are at the forefront of sustainable energies. According to the International Energy Agency, 30% of the world's electricity will be from renewable energy sources by 2024, and solar panels and wind turbines are driving this growth.
Power-to-X is a blanket term for a variety of processes that turn electricity into heat, hydrogen, or synthetic fuels. With power-to-X, heating, transport, and other industrial processes could run on this synthetic fuel, allowing more of our energy system to say goodbye to coal, oil, and natural gas.
3. Enhanced Geothermal Energy
Scandinavian countries have been using geothermal power for years. Still, as technology increases, we are finding ways to tap into the natural heat of the mantle and the core to power systems in an energy-efficient and sustainable way.
4. Wave Generation
Ocean waves produce a tremendous amount of energy. Scientists are studying ways to harness this power and create sustainable energy sources powered by the ocean.
