Alternative Energy for Homes

Alternative Energy for Homes


The trend towards homes powered by alternative energy sources, from wind turbines and solar collecting cells to hydrogen fuel cells and biomass gas, is one that needs to be continued into the 21st century and beyond. We have a great need to become more energy independent, and not have to depend on supplying fossil fuels from unstable countries that often antagonize us and our interests. But even outside this factor, we as individuals need to "get out of control" and also stop having to be so dependent on giant oil companies lobbying the government, who, even though they are not really involved in secret conspiracies, still have a grip on people when it comes to heating their homes (and if not through oil, then heat is usually supplied by electricity driven by tissue, another grip).

As Remi Wilkinson, Senior Analyst with Carbon Free, said the growth of distributed generation will lead to the restructuring of the retail electricity market and the generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure. Power providers may have to diversify their businesses to make up for lost income through household micro energy generation. He was referring to the conclusion by a group of British analysts, himself among them, who called themselves Carbon Free. Carbon Free has studied the growing trend towards homes using alternative energy in the UK and the West. This trend is driven by a growing number of government recommendations and is sometimes supported by alternative energy research and development, rising costs of oil and other fossil fuels, concerns about environmental degradation, and the desire for energy independence. Carbon Free concludes that, assuming traditional energy prices remain at current levels or increases, micro-generation (meeting all the energy needs of one's home by installing alternative energy technologies such as solar panels or wind turbines) will be a source of home energy such as what the internet will be. home communication and data collection, and ultimately this will have a profound effect on the business of existing energy supply companies.

The Carbon Free analysis also shows that energy companies themselves have participated in the game and are trying to exploit the micro generation for their own benefit in opening up new markets for themselves. Carbon Free cites the example of an electricity company (in the UK) reporting that they are seriously researching and developing ideas for new geothermal energy facilities, because these companies see geothermal energy production as a very profitable wave in the future. Another conclusion from Carbon Free is that solar thermal water heating technology is an efficient technology to reduce the cost of heating home water in the long run, even though it was initially quite expensive to install. However, solar power has not been cost-effective for companies, because they need too many special pipe ways to implement solar hot water heaters. Finally, Carbon Free tells us that installing a wind turbine is an efficient way to reduce home electricity costs, while becoming more independent. However, once again this was initially a very expensive thing to install, and companies should start cutting their prices on these devices or they could lose market share.
