ALTERNATE ENERGY RESOURCES

Energy conservation is the foundation of energy independence

4.1 INTRODUCTION

Every day, a lot of carbon dioxide is being released due to different developmental activities that accumulates around the atmosphere. Such release of carbon dioxide is one of the causes of global warming. One answer to reduce the global warming effect is to replace and retrofit current traditional energy resources with alternative energy sources which perform comparably better without emitting carbon dioxide.

At the same time, with increasing demand for energy and with fast depleting conventional sources of energy such as coal, petroleum, natural gas and so on, the non-conventional sources of energy such as energy the sun, wind, biomass, ...
