Sustainable energy is a form of energy that meet our today’s demand of energy without putting them in danger of getting expired or depleted and can be used over and over again. Sustainable energy should be widely encouraged as it do not cause any harm to the environment and is available widely free of cost. All renewable energy sources like solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower and ocean energy are sustainable as they are stable and available in plenty.
Sun will continue to provide sunlight till we all are here on earth, heat caused by sun will continue to produce winds, earth will continue to produce heat from inside and will not cool down anytime soon, movement of earth, sun and moon will not stop and this will keep on producing tides and the process of evaporation will cause water to evaporate that will fall down in the form of rain or ice which will go through rivers or streams and merge in the oceans and can be used to produce energy through hydropower. This clearly states that all these renewable energy sources are sustainable and will continue to provide energy to the coming generations. Douglas Healy, an attorney at Healy Law offices shares his thoughts on sustainable energy and its management.
Sustainable energy management is designed to provide a management model that can be accepted not only by individual companies but by countries or regions that create a geographical, natural, and economic unit. The sustainable energy management model is based solely on determining the most appropriate form of management of the system of future energy production and consumption, indicating the most important objectives in the field of sustainable energy development, pointing out how these goals can be achieved, and controlling the complex process by applying the methodology of assessment of the achieved degree of sustainable development. Only in this way is it possible to plan, organize, monitor, and control the complex and complicated process of energy management in the modern world.
Sustainable energy can be defined as energy sources that are not expected to be depleted in a time frame relevant to the human race; therefore they contribute to the sustainability of all species.
Even though sustainable energy sources are most often considered to include all renewable sources, some renewable energy sources do not necessarily fulfill the requirements of sustainability. For instance, the production of biofuels such as ethanol from fermentation has in some life cycle analyses proven to be non-sustainable. Again, this is a controversy that has not yet found a consensus.
Sustainable energy management is most conveniently conducted in practice by using tools and techniques that arrange and observe the process, in its essence complex, as a sum of operations that are to be performed at certain time and in a specific way. Analyzing, planning, directing, implementing, and control phases of sustainable energy management implementation are performed according to goals that are above all focused on providing sustainability as well as preserving positive economic business effects. A combination of reduced energy consumption from non-renewable resources, increased energy consumption from renewable resources, and increased energy efficiency on one side and creating positive economic and non-economic effects on the other, create the definition of modern sustainable energy management.
