Abstract

Our project examines current alternatives to fossil fuels and evaluates their drawbacks and benefits in relation to specific applications in 21st Century society. It provides information concerning future research and development for each respective technology. Due to the limitations of fossil fuels, the authors believe further research should be conducted in solar, wind, nuclear, and emerging energy sources as these have the most potential for improvement and utilization in a world with ever increasing demand for sustainable energy resources.
