Green Energy Mini MBA
Green energy is any energy type that is generated from natural resources, such as sunlight, wind or water.
It often comes from renewable energy sources and includes:
- Solar Power
- Wind Power
- Geothermal Energy
Green energy is important for the environment as it replaces the negative effects of fossil fuels with more environmentally-friendly alternatives. Derived from natural resources, green energy is also often renewable and clean, meaning that they emit no or few greenhouse gases and are often readily available.
Even when the full life cycle of a green energy source is taken into consideration, they release far less greenhouse gases than fossil fuels, as well as few or low levels of air pollutants. This is not just good for the planet but is also better for the health of people and animals that have to breathe the air.
Green energy also has considerable economic benefits.
Green energy leads to stable energy prices as these sources are often produced locally and are not as affected by geopolitical crisis, price spikes or supply chain disruptions. The economic benefits also include job creation in building the facilities that often serve the communities where the workers are employed.
Renewable energy continues to bring socio-economic benefits by creating numerous jobs worldwide, according to the latest figures released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). The seventh edition of Renewable Energy and Jobs – Annual Review shows that jobs in the sector reached 11.5 million globally last year, led by solar PV with some 3.8 million jobs, or a third of the total.
Predictions are that the solar industry will provide 22 million jobs by 2050.
Green energy leaders insist that adopting renewables creates jobs and boosts local income in both developed and developing energy markets. Each country can harness its renewable potential, take steps to leverage local capabilities for industrial development, and train its workers.
Renewable energy has a diverse variety of benefits for business owners. Beyond its environmental value, it can also help a company reduce their energy costs by a significant margin. A business owner can save a substantial amount of money through these systems, regardless of their motivation.
Furthermore, the declining cost of solar systems has made them increasingly accessible. Tax rebates from the federal government also provide incentive, offering a discount on installation for a range of renewable systems. In addition to solar power, the government has included geothermal and wind power in their program as well.
