The Future of Renewable Energy

What really is the future of renewable energy?

Many people ask theses day what really is renewable energy?,and what is the future of renewable energy? Renewable energy sources are those that, after being used, can be regenerated in a natural or artificial way. These cycles are maintained in a more or less constant way in nature. Renewable energies make use of natural resources such as wind, sunlight, water flow or vegetable oils. They can be used to generate enough power for human consumption without harming the planet.

As they do not produce pollutant emissions, they are the cleanest and most viable solution in the midst of a very harsh environmental reality. According to IEA (International Energy Agency), renewable energies represent a radical change in the forms of energy production compared to traditional ones (such as oil or mineral exploitation). Not only will this benefit the environment, but will most definitely boost the market with the generation of jobs and competitiveness in economies of scale.

Renewable energy and its proximity to us

The future of renewable energy looks quite promising. Many people can not see it ever changing or realise the movements that are currently being made. However if we look at the constant activist movements, proposals of environmental, political organisations and the small-scale collaboration of citizens we are sure to see a huge difference in the future for our environment.

By 2020, renewable energy through photovoltaic solar panels, thermoelectric or wind power systems is expected to reach 30%, which is a 7% increase to 2015 at 23%.

Some proposals distributed by the Clean Energy Ministerial are already being implemented. They all come from different countries and aim to significantly improve their local environment. They also demonstrate that, if implemented, it is possible to help the planet through global renewable policies.

In addition, thanks to the Paris Agreement of the World Climate Summit, it is expected that by 2020 all signatory countries will reduce their emissions of carbon and other pollutants to the limit of negatively impacting the environment.

Can we help make this a reality?

Of course, it’s possible!

By 2016, the worldwide production of renewable energy equalled fuel production, which is a major step forward for the future. Maybe in 2022, we’ll be able to double it. This means that biofuels will have a 93% boom.

On a large scale, In 2016 the UK has joined renewable energy policies by increasing the use of solar plants by 26%. Wind systems have increased also by 11%. By 2020 this is expected to increase by 11%, so we can all work together to unite for the planet.

Laws in the UK have supported renewable energy policies to get more people to join in the change. This will not only benefit the planet but also our budgets. The Renewable Obligation (RO) was designed to promote the generation of electricity in an ecological and massive way, rewarding entrepreneurs for life. In addition, the Feed-in-Tariff also seeks to encourage ordinary citizens to generate enough energy to feed themselves and, at the same time, return it to the electricity company (which also makes you a monthly sum of money). Although the government feed-in-tariffs were stopped in April 2019 they are set to return through suppliers by early 2020. Keep and eye out for that!

Renewable energy has gradually become a secure future for all of us. It all depends on the course of history whether or not we want to save our planet!
