Green Energy Mini MBA

Changing over to green energy is no longer just a nice thing to do for the planet.

Businesses stand to benefit greatly from a green energy approach. According to the EPA and other sources, the business benefits of green energy and renewable energy are considerable, and include:

  • Cost savings
  • Risk management and resilience
  • Corporate social responsibility and positive public relations
  • Improved employee engagement

Regarding cost savings, a report by Bain & Company, energy accounts for about 5% of costs for an average manufacturing company. Such an enterprise can follow an energy-efficiency program and save between 10% and 30% of these costs within three years.

And since 2002, software solutions company Adobe has completed more than 180 energy efficiency projects – reducing electricity usage by 50% and achieving savings in natural gas plus domestic and irrigation water usage too.

The 2016 CSR Report from retail group Boots claims “LED lighting replacements in stores in the UK… accounted for a consumption reduction of around 7.9 million kilowatt hours, enough to power over 1,700 UK households for a year.

Green energy is any energy type that is generated from natural resources, such as sunlight, wind or water. As a source of energy, green energy often comes from renewable energy technologies such as solar energy, wind power, geothermal energy, biomass and hydroelectric power.

In order to be deemed green energy, a resource cannot produce pollution, such as is found with fossil fuels. This means that not all sources used by the renewable energy industry are green. For example, power generation that burns organic material from sustainable forests may be renewable, but it is not necessarily green, due to the CO2 produced by the burning process itself.

Green energy sources are usually naturally replenished, as opposed to fossil fuel sources like natural gas or coal, which can take millions of years to develop. Green sources also often avoid mining or drilling operations that can be damaging to eco-systems.

Hydropower is the most widely-used renewable power source, with the global hydroelectric installed capacity exceeding 1,295GW, accounting for more than 18% of the world’s total installed power generation capacity and more than 54% of the global renewable power generation capacity.

Wind is the second most widely used renewable energy source, as global installed wind power capacity is expected to grow to around 840.9 gigawatts In 2022, accounting for approximately 25% of the world’s total renewable energy generation capacity.

More than 486GW of installed capacity makes solar the third biggest renewable power source in the world, with photovoltaic (PV) technology being dominant. The use of concentrating solar power (CSP) technology is also on the rise.

China, US, Germany, Japan, Italy, and India possess the biggest solar PV capacity in the world, while Spain has 42% of the global CSP capacity.
