Abstract

Fossil fuels are what primarily provide everyone with energy and power. Scientists and engineers have been searching for an alternative way to provide energy in a sustainable, renewable, and environmentally friendly way. Looking at the constant source of energy provided by the sun, this source could be harnessed in a way that could continually make energy. Using a Stirling engine, the solar energy from the sun could power the engine to produce enough mechanical engines to power a house. This newer technology would help make more of the energy used in the world more environmentally friendly and provide means for single houses to acquire economically feasible, sustainable, and renewable power.
