Other Alternatives


  
Other sources of alternative energy are hydroelectric energy, nuclear energy, geothermal energy, biomass and tidal/ocean energy.
     
   Hydroelectric energy is the electric power generated by using the kinetic energy of flowing water. Hydroelectric power stations employ huge water turbines to drive electric generators8.

   Geothermal energy is the heat stored inside the earth and the energy is derived from the transfer of heat from the core to the surface of the Earth. Geothermal energy is relatively economic, but not readily available or obtainable8.

   Tidal/Ocean energy involves the process in which, the regular rise and fall of the water level in the earth's oceans, is capable of producing energy. The rise and the fall is a result of the gravitational forces between the earth, moon, and sun8.

   Biomass energy is the energy obtained from the methane gas generated by sewage or farm, industrial, and household organic waste, from specially cultivated organisms and trees8.
