  • Types of Renewable Energy
    The United States currently relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy. Fossil fuels are non-renewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, the many types of renewable energy resources-such as wind and solar energy-are constantly replenished and will never run out.
  • Renewable Energy
    A clean energy revolution is taking place across America, underscored by the steady expansion of the U.S. renewable energy sector.
  • Alternative Energy Sources – What is Alternative Energy?
    The common definition for this tern is that it is an overall term used to refer to any source of usable energy intended to replace fuel sources, and in modern times, without the consequences of pollution or greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Alternative Energy Pros and Cons
    Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?
    Whether alternative energy sources such as biofuels, hydrogen, solar, geothermal, or nuclear energy can meet energy demands better than finite fossil fuels such as oil and coal remains hotly debated.
  • ND Farmers Buy In To Growing Jet Fuel
    Canadian seed producer Agrisoma Biosciences sought farmers this winter to plant carinata, a variety of mustard seed that can be made into a biofuel indistinguishable from petroleum products. One potential consumer, the U.S. Navy, is targeting carinata to help reach its goal of serving half of its energy needs with non-oil sources by 2020.
