Abstract

Providing a self-sustaining, efficient, and cost-affordable source of energy is perhaps the greatest challenge posed in modern society. With supplies of common fossil fuels and many other non-renewable resources nearing depletion, humanity must soon find safe, dependable, and inexpensive fuel sources capable of adequately fulfilling our heat and electricity generation needs. In this report, unique solutions and regulatory policies are proposed after closely examining the advantages, disadvantages, and sociopolitical concerns of many different fuels in both qualitative and quantitative respects.
