During the industrial revolution, energy consumption boomed as savvy inventors and engineers developed new ways of doing things – ways of doing things that advanced societies and shaped the world we live in.
Since the industrial revolution, both engineering prowess and energy usage have continued to grow rapidly.
Understanding of our interactions with the environment has also grown. Issues such as climate change and the finite nature of raw materials has forced a rethink of energy production and consumption.
This website explores that new design.
The ultimate goal of ExploringGreenTechnology.com is to provide useful, accurate, and thought provoking information about different alternative energy and green technologies.
Part of making useful information clear and accessible is relying on good sources. We strive to find and present only useful and accurate information.
Instead of bombarding you with technical data, we attempt to limit our use of statistics to those that are actually valuable in presenting a comprehendible and accurate picture of various green technologies.
What is Green Technology?
The main definitions we work to here are that green technology:
- is sustainable
- avoids or reduces waste and toxic by products
- reuses materials
- works in harmony with the environment and eco-systems
Green Energy Technology
A major focus of this website is green energy technology, particularly solar and wind energy production.
We do explore other green energy technology methods such as hydroelectric and geothermal, however we tend to focus on solar and wind technologies as they require more attention.
Reasons for this include the dramatic developments of these technologies over the past few years; the wide range of different applications and methods with solar and wind; and that these two are relevant on a private, public, commercial, and political level.
