Renewable Energy Products and Renewable Energy Content
Renewable energy (renewable energy or alternate energy) derived from renewable resources like wind, sun, rain, tides and geothermal energy can be naturally replenishing. This resource of energy is also more ecologically friendly than traditional energy. Most conventional energy today is derived from fossil fuels, which are not renewable energy but depletes over time. Another problem with this energy source is that it emits pollutants into the atmosphere which cause global warming. It can also contribute to air pollution.
There are a great deal of technological development for renewable energy products but very few companies are able to penetrate the highly competitive electricity markets in developed nations. Some countries have made a special effort to develop residential and small-commercial developments using green building technologies. But the market is too developed for most of these products to find a place in the established markets. They are not cost-effective or technically feasible.
In developing countries, governments have encouraged the use of renewable energy products. They have made special rules for the collection of green certificates when consumers buy these goods. The rules and regulations give the manufacturer’s assurance that the products they produce will have clean power. Green certificates are also a proof of responsibility on the part of the company producing the item.
The buyers must be confident about the quality and performance of the renewable energy products they purchase. They should check the product carefully to ensure that the technology is working properly. One of the easiest ways to check is to look at the company’s sales record. A company that has been in business for many years is likely to have achieved success because it has a number of satisfied customers. Companies with only a few sales may not have the financial resources to keep up with competition. Therefore the best way to ensure that customers are satisfied is to ask customers to make purchase intentions.
Many large corporations in the United States began offering this as a corporate incentive. They have done this to try to reduce their overall environmental concern footprint. In North America, our commercial electricity suppliers began offering this as a green product for companies that purchased excess power production. The excess power produced by companies produces harmful greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to global warming and a rise in climate change.
For several years our commercial electricity suppliers allowed wind farms to be constructed near transmission lines. Wind farms have reduced the production of green mountain energy by 80 percent over the last ten years. However, now that the Federal government has mandated the closure of all these farms the federal government is supporting the construction of even more solar and wind farms. This policy supports new advances in both solar and wind energy technologies helping the United States has become the world leader in renewable energy resources.
