Use of renewable energies, its challenges and solutions

The stakes for sustainable development are enormous and the energy transition is a global objective. Today, the reduction of energy consumption is in good momentum and most countries are making efforts to move from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy sources.

The challenges of the energy transition

In all countries of the world, it has become urgent to transform energy production and consumption systems. In concrete terms, this means the use of renewable energies and the gradual abandonment of fossil fuels to reduce environmental impact. The least inexhaustible source of energy in nature is the sun, a renewable and free source of energy. The planet and humanity owe it the development of life on earth, water in all its forms, wind, gas, plants… Solar energy is booming and is the subject of massive investments because many actors are relying on this promising source of energy. The regulations are encouraging and encourage the development of this energy source at all levels.

For a greener and more inclusive growth

Abandoning carbonaceous and polluting energies in favour of renewable energies that respect the environment and human health, such as geothermal energy, hydropower, solar energy, wind energy, the use of biomass, etc; it is urgent to act for the planet and the climate. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, abandoning nuclear power, reducing energy consumption, protecting health… must be at the heart of the priorities of all countries in the world. Humanity must achieve greener and more inclusive growth to eliminate the overexploitation of the planet’s natural resources.

Renewable energies in response to the ecological emergency

All over the world, the role of renewable energies is growing. The use of solar photovoltaic energy, solar thermal energy and wind energy production are constantly increasing. Hydropower production, geothermal energy, bioenergy, biomass, is also developing. Each year “The world adds more renewable capacity than it adds capacity in the various fossil resources” which should lead to a gradual improvement in the planet’s health status. In a positive approach to environmental problems, there should be a gradual decrease in the price of existing renewable energy technologies to encourage their development and provide more capacity at lower costs.
