      Instead, the energy of the future will need to be generated by a patchwork of renewable sources: wind, solar, geothermal, hydro, and yes, nuclear power, will probably all play a role in generating the electricity of tomorrow. (And yes, I say electricity, because the internal combustion engine and other gas-powered motors will be phased out.

Importance of Rural Bio-EnergyAuthor: Alan Owen, Leuserina Garniati. (Inside Science) -- The United States, along with 34 other nations, is making a massive investment in time and money to help to build a huge experimental nuclear fusion reactor in the south of France that bills itself as one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world y more than a decade in the making, critics have questioned its large budget, its ability.

Figueres, who helped facilitate the passage of the Paris Agreement on climate change, and Rivett-Carnac, a lobbyist for the United Nations, position their book as presenting options for what.

The Future of Solar Energy considers only the two widely recognized classes of technologies for converting solar energy into electricity — photovoltaics (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP), sometimes called solar thermal) — in their current and plausible future forms. Because energy supply facilities typically last several decades, technologies in these classes will dominate solar.

The fascinating new book, Our Renewable Future, gathers and assesses the viability of those plans. Join the book's authors leading scientists and thinkers in their own right, to explore the future of clean energy and how a fully renewable energy supply will shape our lives and economy.
