Alternative Energy Sources

There are a number of energy sources being developed as alternatives to the burning of fossil fuels like coal, natural gas and oil but some of their production processes can generate carbon dioxide (CO2) as a by-product, which means natural or man-made carbon capture and storage (CCS) processes would need to be employed to make them carbon neutral - which is not ideal.

Because huge R&D resources around the world are being applied to the development of renewable fuel production we can expect to see a steadily changing scene, which means in 10-years’ time the cost effectiveness and environmental impact of alternative energy may be different from what we see today.

A series of very watchable videos from 'Just Have A Think', featured below, help to explain some of the options being explored.
