An extraordinary challenge facing modern society is the implementation of energy production infrastructure that can satisfy total demand while minimizing pecuniary cost and pollutant byproducts. Researchers are developing parallel solutions to this quandary; investigating methods of pollutant capture and reduction while simultaneously developing passive methods of harvesting energy from natural phenomena. A plethora of alternative energy sources must be utilized in conjunction with improvements in device and lifestyle efficiency in order to extend the lifetime of fossil fuels.
