the future of energy
Renewable energy capacity is set to expand 50% between 2019 and 2024, led by solar energy. This is according to The International Energy Agency (IEA)’s ‘Renewable 2019’ report, which found that solar, wind and hydro-power projects are rolling out at their fastest rate in four years. The resurgence follows a global slowdown last year, due to falling technology costs and rising environmental concerns (Folk 2020).

Notes from Contributor
I believe The Future of Energy relies solely on our ability to realize the global Climate Crisis. Climate-warming trends are due to the human-expansion of the Greenhouse Effect. With this understanding, we can then combat our errors and adjust our daily- routine. There will always be an uncertainty in understanding this complex system. However, we must cohesively overcome this barrier and realize that our resources are finite. Making eco-friendly changes to our homes, such as solar panels or windmills, can greatly reduce this greenhouse effect. My hope is for everyone to come together and understand that this issue is global.
