What is YOUR Favorite Alternative Energy?

Our Mission is to give you up to date, valuable information on Renewable Energy.

We dream of a future that is dominated by renewable energy!

As fossil fuel supplies dwindle and people continue to damage the environment with harmful greenhouse gas emissions, alternative  solutions are becoming more important than ever.

MyAlternative Energy strives to bring you all the latest and most exciting news related to solar, wind, biomass and geothermal energy.

In addition, we are here to provide the facts about environmentally friendly forms of technology, including the newest electric car models.


Solar Energy

Solar panels are made from silicon wafers, and electrons in the silicon flow through wires inside the panels when they are exposed to sunlight.
 
This process turns sunlight into usable energy that can power everything from household appliances to satellites in space.

Since solar technology is both effective and environmentally friendly, researchers are constantly working towards boosting its efficiency so that use of solar panels will become more commonplace.

Wind Energy

The two main types of wind machines are horizontal-axis and vertical-axis machines, with the former being more popular due to their ability to continuously produce more consistent energy while using less material.

Wind machines generate clean, alternative energy, and the largest can generate enough energy to provide power to over a hundred homes.

The potential of wind machines grows as they become more widely used.

We will bring you the latest news as more money is invested in boosting the efficiency and public awareness of wind energy technologies.

Biomass Energy

Biomass energy technology utilizes natural materials (such as woodchips, leftover paper and agricultural waste) in order to produce energy.

Although biomass technologies produce the same level of carbon dioxide as we expect from fossil fuels, carbon dioxide is removed from our atmosphere each time a new plant grows.

As a result, biomass technology has a net emission of zero carbon dioxide.

Given this fact, biomass energy is viewed as another promising solution to our environmental woes.

Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is thermal alternative energy that is generated in the earth.

Hot rocks are saturated with water in underground reservoirs, and deep holes are drilled into these reservoirs in order to allow the hot water and steam to be piped to a geothermal energy plant (where they can then power electric generators).

Although geothermal energy is a clean source of energy that is also highly cost-effective, it is still a relatively unpopular way of generating electricity.

However, improvements in geothermal technology may change this fact in the near future.

We will communicate the latest results of this groundbreaking research program as they are released.

Electric Cars

Electric cars reduce greenhouse gas emissions by using electrical energy (usually stored in batteries) to propel one or more electric motors.

These vehicles are quiet, fast, and constantly evolving.

Come back soon to learn everything you need to know about all the latest makes and models of electric cars, including which are most cost-effective.
