Clean energy refers to any source of power that does not pollution or harm the environment.
can be distinguished from renewable power in that clean power is focused on carbon emission reduction as a method of counteracting “dirty”
energy as a primary goal whereas renewables would be, by definition, focused on the ability to reuse a resource as an ultimate goal
The United States gets 81% of its total energy from oil, coal, and natural gas, all of which are fossil fuels.
We depend on those fuels to heat our homes, run our vehicles, power industry and manufacturing, and provide us with electricity.
Eventually, the degree to which we depend on fossil fuels will have to decline as the planet’s known supplies diminish, the difficulty and cost of tapping remaining reserves increase, and the effect of their continued use on our planet grows more critical.
But shifting to new energy sources will take time. In the meantime, how do we use fossil fuels in the most efficient and environmentally responsible way possible?
State of Green
A paradigm shift is taking place on a global scale.
We are witnessing a historic conversion of energy systems that are based on fossil fuels to ones powered by clean energy.
Technological developments, growing political will and price decreases mean that the number of clean energy options are expanding.
