Fossil fuels are the world's primary source of all energy produced. According to the most optimistic projections our supply of fossil fuels will be exhausted in as little as three hundred years. Alternative renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy have the potential to lead the way in aiding our energy needs. The ulimate goal of our project was to formulate the best possible energy policy to counteract the depletion of fossil fuels. To achieve the best combination of renewable sources and fossils fuels, we evaluated social, economic, and environmental impacts the policy will have on modern society.
