Alternative Energy
As concerns about pollution mount, and the price of and access to oil becomes less stable, many are looking toward new or alternative technologies to provide the energy resources we need. A variety of plausible alternative energy resources and innovations are currently being researched to increase their efficiency and suitability for widespread use, including nuclear, solar, wind, and hydrogen power. Take a look at the innovations and advancements that have been made in this field over the past few decades.
