Abstract

Energy, in its current state, is a finite resource that will not last for generations to come. This project investigates existing research on several renewable energy alternatives, including nuclear, hydroelectric, natural gas, biofuels, and more, as well as providing a potential method of combining solar and wind energy harvesting techniques for increased efficiency. Finally, the social effects of renewable energy on health, the environment, and politics are considered, and an outlook for the future is included.
