Alternative Energy Predictions: Next 50 Years

  • Solar Power will be the most dominate type of renewable energy, even though it will only make up about 40% of the used energy on Earth
  • Scientists will discover how to use extraneous waste to create precious biofuels, and they can use things like human and animal waste
  • The Amazon Rainforest, which is the haven for renewable energy, may entirely disappear of all trees and plants

More on Alternative Energy

Advantages

  • It will last forever because it is renewable and unlimited
  • Produces little to no waste in the environment during production
  • Does not require a lot of hands to man the facilities
  • The fuel significantly decreases the cost of production

Disadvantages

  • Alternative energy does not give out as much energy then fossil fuels, which either require a method for more energy production, or build more facilities
  • Renewable energy depends a lot on the weather. For example, if there is no wind one day, and a city was powered by wind turbines, the city would be getting very little energy
  • The renewable technology is a lot more expensive, than current fossil fuel technology and facilities
