Green Energy 101

  1. 1. ==== ====Green Energy ====Green energy is a classification which covers all forms and sources that are are known as non-polluting and therefore environment friendly. Common examples of eco-friendly power sources aregeothermal, wind, solar, and hydro sources. Nuclear power can also be classified as green energybecause of the amount of energy it can produce with very minimal costs. Nuclear powerpossesses the two main requirements from an energy source to be considered green, and thoseare low carbon emissions and little pollution. Many though argue that nuclear energy should not belabeled green because of the dangers it poses like radiation, radioactive wastes and possiblereactor meltdowns.Green energy is mostly considered when it comes to the production of electrical power. TheUnited Nations is the worlds leader in the campaign to promote widespread use of green energy.The UN urges consumers, businesses, and organizations to purchase green power to help fundthe continuous research and development for such resources as well as to reduce the harmfuleffects of current energy generation processes and also aid lead to their nations energyindependence. Renewable energy certificates such as green certificates and green tags are alsobeing distributed to allow consumers and business to support green energy and its informationcampaign.Other NamesThere are other terms that can be used interchangeably with green energy such as renewableenergy, alternative energy, clean energy,clean technologies, non-polluting energy and non-fossil-fuel source. Green energy and green power are also used to refer to electricity generated fromgreen sources. Brown energy, on the other hand, is often used to denote non-green sources.Green SourcesGreen energy covers all natural energy generating process that can produce energy with littlepollution such as anaerobic digestion, geothermal power, wind power, small-scale hydropower,solar energy, biomass power, tidal power, and wave power fall. Incineration can also beconsidered green though many protest of the acidic emissions it produces. There is no energysource that is completely pollution free but green energy generation has reduced its pollutant by-products to very minimal amounts.Comparison to Brown SourcesStudies show that Nuclear, Hydro, and Wind lead by Biosphere Technology produce far lessgreenhouse emissions that all other sources of energy. It is therefore believed that continues useof the said green sources can stop further worsening of global warming and might even provideroom for atmospheric healing. The World Health Organization claims that out air pollution killsmore than 3 million people annually. More deaths are added by hurricanes, flooding, and otherweather abnormalities caused by global warming.
  2. 2. PotentialsGreen sources generally produce less energy compared to brown sources, but a new gasificationprocessed termed as biosphere technology has been discovered which is believed to have thepotential to surpass brown technologies in terms of energy efficiency. Moreover, biospheregasification generates green electricity through the very efficient and controlled combustion ofsolid wastes, thus solving both power generation and waste disposal problems.Darewin Amio Ocampo is a technical writer for the Search Engine Optimization Department ofTrue Bio Electric - a company belonging to the True Green Energy Group.
