It is familiar that green energy refers to the use of power that is not only more efficient than fossil fuel but that is friendly to the environment as well. The general definition of Green Energy is energy sources that don’t pollute and are renewable.
There are several categories of green energy. They are anaerobic digestion, wind power, geothermal power, and hydropower on a small scale, biomass power, solar power and wave power. Waste incineration can even be a source of green energy.
Nuclear power plants claim that they produce green energy as well, though this source is fraught with controversy, as we all know. Its waste does pollute the biosphere as it is released while nuclear energy may be sustainable, may be considered renewable and does not pollute the atmosphere while it is producing energy
The transport, mining and phases before and after production of nuclear energy does produce and release carbon dioxide and similar destructive greenhouse gases. we rarely see nuclear power included when we read of green energy, therefore.
Those who support nuclear energy say that nuclear waste is not, in fact, released into our earth’s biosphere during its normal production cycle. They stress as well that the carbon dioxide that nuclear energy production releases is comparable, in terms of each kilowatt hour of electricity, to such sources of green energy as wind power.
As an example of the green energy production the middling wind turbine, such as the one in Reading England, can produce enough energy daily to be the only energy source for 1000 households.
Many countries now offer household and commercial consumers to opt for aggregate use of green energy. They do this one of two ways. Consumers can buy their electricity from a company that only uses renewable green energy technology, or they can buy from their general supplies such as the local utility company who then buys from green energy resources only as much of a supply as consumers pay for.
