• Our energy consumption is exorbitantly high. Most of this energy is sourced from fossil fuels that are at risk of running dry.
  • The rise in industrialization and population expansion will trigger larger demands for energy.
  • The over reliance on fossil fuels is increasing carbon footprints and resulting in climate changes all over the world.
  • Some countries still face enormous energy bills that take  larger percentage of household incomes during extreme seasons of the year such as winter and summer.

  • Overconsumption and over reliance on fossil fuels has increased the cost of energy production and our dependence on it.
  • Aging infrastructure of power-generating equipment results in weaker energy outputs and rising costs.
  • Unexplained higher fees charged on the use of renewable forms of energy compared with fossil fuels.
  • Lack of energy conservation exercises and penalties on over consuming energy practices.
  • Unstable pricing of fossil fuels, in times of uncertainty such as wars, tax hikes, strikes, political events, weather turmoil and financial crisis.

  • A significant proportion of rural populations still have no electricity in many parts of the globe, while those with access to it are still struggling towards global sustainability.
  • The reliance on fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas have been directly linked to rising levels of greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere, a key contributor to climate change.
  • Electricity generation is one of the leading sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the US.
  • Unless alternative natural and reliable energy sources are used, the world runs the risk of high financial costs on its energy production.
  • Although renewable energy is a better alternative to fossil fuels that are at the brink of exhaustion, it still needs to be made sustainable.

  • Initiate the shift towards renewable and natural energy sources such as solar energy, geothermal energy, hydropower and the wind.
  • Shift the primary source of power for manufacturing to other energy sources and redesign manufacturing processes to utilize or recycle their waste energies.
  • Identify innovative solutions to enable households to store the energy tapped from renewable energy sources, such through the use of affordable batteries.
  • Engage in energy-efficient practices such as walking instead of driving.
  • Incentivize the shift towards renewable energy by issuing credits to energy users for selling unused surplus energy back to the grid.
  • Ensure solar panels are made affordable for all households.
  • Engage in energy audits to identify ways to improve energy efficiency around the house and save on unnecessary expenses of energy wastage.
  • Adopt global initiatives to focus on the reduction of greenhouse gases by cutting on emission levels and establishing quick and ambitious targets to achieve them.
  • Harness wind energy through the use of windmills to power energy needs of households or for industrial purposes.
  • Utilize geothermal energy to generate steam that can be used to activate turbines and their generators.
