Alternative energy or Altered Energy is any energy source that is an alternative to fossil fuel. These alternatives are intended to address concerns about such fossil fuels, such as its high carbon dioxide emissions, an important factor in global warming. Marine energy, hydroelectric, wind, geothermal and solar power are all alternative sources of energy.

The nature of what constitutes an alternative energy source has changed considerably over time, as have controversies regarding energy use. Because of the variety of energy choices and differing goals of their advocates, defining some energy types as “alternative” is considered very controversial.

Common types of alternative energy

    • Hydro electricity captures energy from falling water.
    • Nuclear energy uses nuclear fission to release energy stored in the atomic bonds of heavy elements.
    • Wind energy is the generation of electricity from wind, commonly by using propeller-like turbines.
    • Solar energy is the use of sunlight. Light can be changed into thermal (heat) energy or directly into electricity via photovoltaic devices.
    • Geothermal energy is the use of the earth’s internal heat to boil water for heating buildings or generating electricity.
    • Biofuel and ethanol are plant-derived gasoline substitutes for powering vehicles.
    • Hydrogen can be used as a carrier of energy, produced by various technologies such as cracking of hydrocarbons or water electrolysis.
