By the time you finish reading this, you will have learnt why we need to embrace green energy. Green energy mean electricity we generate and get from the sun, sea and wind. The gas from food remains is also included in this category. These are renewable sources of energy hence the increased impetus in their use to produce energy. Away from being environmental friendly, these sources of energy are also known for their affordability, their ability to create jobs in their respective industries and their ability to ensure independence of energy in any country that embraces them.
In green energy industries, there has been massive recruitment and creation of jobs ranging from the professional jobs, technical and manual jobs. Unemployment being the worst problem that many economies are facing across the world is a source of so many other social evils. To minimize this problem the respective government have come up with policies on green energy and implemented them in their quest to achieve just the natural rate of employment as it is enumerated by Philip’s curve. Many unemployed people have found resting place in these industries in their quest to earn a living and place a meal on the table for their families.
The other merit associated with green energy is the attainment of independence in the energy sector. All countries that have embraced production of green energy have achieved a great extent of independent as far as production and provision of electricity to their citizenry is concerned. They have been able to connected majority of the population to their respective national grid. Such countries include Britain. This independence is very essential for any economy to achieve its general economic growth. A country without the right sources of energy always rags behind in terms of development.
Green energy is also meritorious in that it does not have negative side effects on the environment. Wind is known to be very natural and it is defined as energy in motion. Sun also has tremendous positive impact on living things and it has not been associated with any major side effects hence an important source of energy. Food remains are known to be a source of fertilizer. This means that it is also appropriate to have it as a source of energy. Its side effects are not dire. The sea has also immense potential when it comes to the production of green energy. All these are very natural hence their preference and appetite from the energy producers.
So there you have it. You now know why it is imperative for any country to go green and embrace the green energy. It will minimize the repercussions of global warming and reduce wastage of our otherwise important and renewable resources. Our economies will also be catapulted to greater height of independence in terms of energy since energy forms a core and integral requirement for any country to move forward and achieve its economic prosperity. There have been increased campaigns by various economic forums held worldwide to try and preach the gospel of green energy the recent being the one held in Durban South Africa and attended by all the energy representatives from across the globe.
