Clean power and energy sources like solar and wind can help us decrease weather change. More than ever, our lands are threatened by the nation’s addiction to fossil energy, especially oil and coal. No single clean energy solution exists. But together, we can cultivate solutions to create an ecological friendly and renewable energy future and reduce climate change.
What is renewable energy?
In this world heavily relies on polluting fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas for energy. Whereas fossil fuels will eventually run out or become very expensive to retrieve, renewable energy resources— mainly solar and wind energy— are continually reused.
The Wilderness Society works to find explanations to help touch a future in which the nation relies on a more renewable energy method. This contains hard work to decrease our demand for power, as well as increase power generation near where people live and work. Moreover, large-scale sustainable energy schemes proficient of substituting fossil power generation will play a role.
Why do we need it?
Making Saudi Arabia more economically and environmentally secure requires adopting cleaner forms of energy to power our daily lives. Sustainable energy offers wild lands better protections by delivering replacements to expanding oil and gas drilling and coal mining. Substituting fossil energy with sustainable energy can decrease carbon releases and limit the worst effects of weather change.
Where does it come from?
The most common sources of sustainable energy come from the sun, the wind, and the earth’s geothermal heat. Other forms of power, like biomass and hydropower, can be considered renewable if they are done sustainably.
How much will be built?
Study after study makes it clear: Saudi Arabia needs to transform its energy system with less-polluting options. We want to make tremendous reserves in the full range of clean energy choices, from renewable energy to building-efficiency programs. If we don’t follow cleaner technologies, we will just further cement the role of polluting fossil fuels.
What is the role of public lands in renewable energy?
Along with state and private lands, our public lands harbor considerable wind, solar and geothermal assets. Development isn’t suitable everywhere on public lands. Where it does happen on public lands, it needs to be done in a responsible manner.
