Alternative Energy & Energy Efficiency Not an Option Anymore
With the Increased Effects of Global Warming it's Become Crucial that Commercial and Industrial Energy Users and Governments Enact Immediate Measures to Curb Global Greenhouse Gas Pollution.

Now, a paradigm shift has taken place where we realize some of the negative effects of a carbon fuel based economy can bring in terms of global weather pattern change, product drilling and mining effects on the environment, and other negative results of reilance upon carbon fuels has made us realize that a change in the way we utilize our resources is mandatory.
According to the Human Development Index, more than 80% of the world’s population live in developing countries. As these emerging economies require more and more energy for things such as further electrification of rural areas and increased fuel needs for a growing agricultural and manufacturing base the demands upon our traditional energy resources, and their associated carbon emissions into our atmosphere will only become greater.
The growing need for energy and the increased consumption of these country’s population will only be compounded by the simultaneous increase of energy use by the developed world and will place a tremendous strain upon the infrastructures that deliver this energy and upon ability of all parties to meet their energy needs.
However, we are in an era of modern transformation in how we think about how we manage and how we utilize our finite carbon resources. Advances in energy efficiency technologies have made exponential strides in how we manage and use energy on both a micro and a macro level.
Advances in renewable and alternative fuels have made it possible to envision our roadways being traveled by primarily electric vehicles with that electricity being produced by renewable sources such as wind and solar power generation. The Industrial and manufacturing use of alternative energy sources has also begun to take hold as our citizen’s begin to demand responsible energy practices.
As renewable sources become more and more economically viable, these technologiesand the infrastructure to support these technologies will emerge much as “Big Oil” infrastructure launched our economic development into the 20th Century. A shift to alternate energy resources and energy efficiency is not an option anymore; but rather a necessity. This new energy transformation is of a magnitude that has never been witnessed before-and the wave has just begun!
