Abstract

This work proposes and analyzes methods to substitute traditional energy sources with new energy technologies that are less harmful to the environment. The state of California serves as the place to apply our ideas. Through a detailed analysis of alternative technologies developed and currently under research, we promote those with highest applicability to the state. Wind, solar and geothermal energy sources are most feasible for California but other technologies such as ocean and biomass have also been considered.
