  1. 1. The energy- saving ideas for a new world<br />By: Yes Mag<br /><ul><li>The sun shines on Canada:</li></ul>The power of sun is beaming down on Canada’s nearly 20 000 lighthouses, beacons, and buoys, 5000 use solar power to guide boats on their way.<br /><ul><li>Cuba’s sweet idea:</li></ul>Cuba grows sugar cane and exports it to countries around the world. It also burns sugar to supply almost 30% of the county’s energy.<br /><ul><li>Iceland freezes out fossil fuels:</li></ul>Ice land plans to stop using fossil fuels by the year 2020; it is turning to cleaner, more efficient hydrogen as a fuel.<br /><ul><li>Scotland harvest wave:</li></ul>On the island of Islay, the energy created by sea waves is used to power about 400 Scottish homes.<br /><ul><li>Sweden goes to grains:</li></ul>In Sweden, people filling up small cars and trucks with Canolia oil rather than gas. This alternative fuel is also available in other countries.<br /><ul><li>Denmark wins with wind:</li></ul>Denmark uses the energy of the wind to produce almost 10% of its electricity. By the year of 2030, the country hopes that 50% of its energy will come from wind turbines (an engine driven by wind). <br /><ul><li>France turns the tide:</li></ul>A region in France called Brittney is using ocean tides for 90% of its power needs. China, Canada, and Russia also have tidal power plants.<br /><ul><li>South Africa turns on the sun:</li></ul> Switching from a heavy use of coal, South Africa is exploring the use of more solar power. Beginning in November 1998, one multimillion-dollar project hoped to supply 50 000 rural homes with electricity produced using solar power.<br /><ul><li>Japan does the wave:
  2. 2. Japan has an $8 million floating experiment called the “Mighty Whale”. This power plant uses sea waves to produce enough electricity to power about 15 homes.
