hydroelectric energy
Around 77% of the United States energy in 2017 came from fossil fuels. Because relying on coal, petroleum, and gas has negative consequences, renewable energy has become more appealing. One option to get away from fossil fuels is harnessing the natural power of water. Still wondering if renewable energy is worth it? Check out seven advantages of using hydroelectric energy below. We bet we...
Green Business Practices: 5 Ways Telecommuting Contributes to Sustainability
Nearly 30% of all greenhouses gasses produced on the planet comes from the use of electricity. That's in addition to the extra 11% of greenhouses gasses produced by other commercial and residential enterprises.

How Big Data Is Being Used to Reduce Waste
Our society produces a lot of waste. We throw away huge amounts of electronics, packaging, food, clothing and other items every year. We also tend not to use our resources in the most efficient ways possible. Both of these forms of waste take a big toll on our environment. However, big data can play a role in solving these...
Barriers to the Development of Next Generation Biofuels
The current growth in electric vehicles has been driven by the concern over the depletion of fossil fuels and the need to support the planet and our environment. Many of these discussions neatly side-step the point that the power needed for electric vehicles comes from the power grid, typically powered by fossil-fuelled or nuclear power stations. Instead of being...
How Is Smart Home Technology Impacting the Energy Industry
While many consumers view smart home tech as a recent innovation, it's just the latest development in a long line of home-oriented breakthroughs. Inventions like dishwashers and microwaves brought increased automation to the home, while the dawn of the internet introduced brand new networking infrastructure and interconnected functionality. Smart home technology is a trend that's been developing and fermenting for...
Following the first ever International Solar Alliance (ISA) summit in March, the year 2018 has seen India become an unlikely leader in the green revolution. The country, home to 1.3 billion people, played host to the inaugural summit, setting a lofty goal of drawing 40 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2030, according to Global Citizen. Within...
Who’s Succeeding in Harnessing Geothermal Energy?
What Is Geothermal Energy? Earth’s inner core is incredibly hot, and therefore releases a certain amount of heat — and this heat can be collected and converted into an energy resource called geothermal energy, which is clean, safe, and renewable. The process of collecting geothermal energy is pretty straightforward: It consists of placing pipes or digging wells underground in hot...
What Is Carbon Capture, and How Does It Help Planet Earth?
A buildup of carbon monoxide, or CO, in the Earth’s atmosphere can cause many problems, the most infamous of which is global warming. Increased levels of CO can also increase tropospheric O3 and many other trace gases. Such a buildup results in issues like severe climate change, global warming and altered atmospheric chemistry or composition. Related: The Devastating Impact Of Climate...
The 10 Best Solar Ovens For An Efficient Cooking
Today, homesteads and commercial platforms are adopting solar cooking either as a cooking alternative, way to cut cost or as fun. The cooking technique is sufficient since it works on a set-up which requires only the ovens which are locally available and the sun which is inexhaustible. The solar ovens have reflectors which trap light particles (photons) then convert...
