ENERGY

The use of natural energy sources to provide heating and electricity is rapidly increasing in popularity among homeowners.

The increasing use of natural and renewable energy sources is needed to help take the burden off our current dependency on fossil fuels. The significantly high level of fossil fuel products burnt each and every day is polluting of the air and surrounding environments and may also be contributing to climate change.

 By making the switch to natural and renewable energy sources, you will be doing your part in helping to improve the quality of the environment and the air we breathe. Although many other issues need to be addressed, making the switch is a large step forward in the fight for a cleaner environment.

With increasing evidence suggesting the burning of fossil fuels is contributing towards climate change, now is the time to switch to alternative means of generating energy.

Clean Energy Ideas was launched in 2007 in an attempt to try and educate visitors to the importance of the use of renewable energy sources. You will find lots of educational material throughout the website, and much of this information relates to how you can get involved in energy conservation and producing your very own natural energy.

The many different natural and renewable energy technologies highlighted throughout the website are by no means breakthrough. Many of these renewable energy technologies have been around for years and as time goes by are increasing in efficiency and benefiting from technological innovation.

Some Advantages of Natural Energy Sources

Below are just a handful of the many advantages relating to the use of natural and renewable energy sources:

  • The sun, wind, tides, and geothermal activity are all renewable.
  • After the initial cost of; solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal energy systems, the only cost to the consumer relates to any required maintenance. You could even sell excess electricity back to your national grid.
  • No more price rises from gas, energy or electricity companies. You could be fully carbon neutral, eliminating your dependency on the remaining reserves of fossil fuels.
  • Use as much or as little of the renewable electricity you're able to generate without feeling guilty for any wastage.
  • By switching to the use of renewable energy sources we're able to make the remaining oil, gas and coal supplies last longer.
  • Government grants may be available for some natural energy projects depending on your location.

Reducing the Effects OF Global Warming

There are many other steps you can take to reduce the effects of global warming which are unrelated to the use of natural energy sources. Many of these steps are easy, affordable and can start at home.

 Something as basic as regular recycling can have a significant impact on the environment whilst saving energy during the manufacture of new products.

Carbon emissions are a direct result of not only heavy industry and transport but also the average household. Energy efficiency and conservation is a key aspect in reducing the effects of global warming, and there are steps that can be taken around the home to achieve this.
