A Brief Note On Solar And Wind Power

Solar and Wind Power Nowadays, environmental and health scientists are concerned largely because of the damages caused by conventional energy. In most cases, these damages are happening because people are more likely to use fossil energy instead of renewable energy. In 1991, the worst disaster happened in the Arabian Gulf, and it was closed to my hometown. It was an oil spill into the gulf sea. It’s estimated more than 250,000 seabirds died by oil spill (Laura Moss, 2010). This happened because the war beteween some Arabic Gulf countries. As well as this, more than 85% of the consumed around the world comes from fossil fuel. Unlike renewable energy, fossil energy notably pollutes our countries. Additionally, conventional energy leads to…show more content…
The primary important difference and similarity between solar and wind power is the amount of energy they produce. Both of them have different capacities to store and provide energy. Currently, the significant difference between solar and wind power is the amount of energy available. According to Ball (2012), in “ Tough Love for Renewable Energy,” solar energy currently produces approximately 0.1 of all energy in the world, whereas wind power provides about 1.4% of global electricity. This means that sunlight energy has a little contribution to give the world its need for electricity, while wind power is more popular than solar energy by providing much more energy. This shows the ability of producing renewable energy. In the article” Rooftop Power,” Priensitz, (2010) writes this amount of energy is provided by using solar panels and wind turbines. On the other hand, in the future, both solar and wind power have the same amount of producing energy. Studies show that both solar and wind power are able to produce about 10% of world electricity (Ball, 2012). These studies are predicated on the amount of renewable energy in 2035. In other words, renewable energy will increase steadily in the future. As shown in the studies, renewable power will not supplant the fossil fuels energy because conventional energy is cheaper. Accordingly,
