Abstract

This report is on Alternative Energy Sources of Nuclear, Solar, Wind, and Hydroelectric energies. It is an exploration of why are they termed “non-renewable. “Additionally, I will address the questions for each of the four type’s nuclear, solar, wind, and hydroelectric, how is it generated and what technology is required. I will also explore the advantages and disadvantages to the use of alternative sources as energy sources. Finally, I will address the specific environmental impacts of the generation, distribution and use of alternative sources as energy sources as well as the specific social, economic, and political impacts of the generation, distribution and use of alternative sources as energy sources.

Alternative energy encompasses energy that does not consume fossil fuel. This form of energy is known as renewable energy. Renewable energy is friendly to our environment and available to us. Additionally, they cause little or no pollution. Nuclear, Solar, wind and hydroelectric energy are forms of alternative or renewable energy that will be discussed here. The more that we become aware of alternative energy projects, the more we may reduce our dependence on traditional fossil fuels.
The first form of alternative energy that will be explored is Nuclear energy. It is a very clean and efficient form of energy that is actually used by boing water to create steam. Using steam, power plants convert heat into electricity which drive turbine generators. “As the…
