ICT to Renovate the Present Life Line Systems from Fossil Fuels to Green Energy

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 249)

Abstract

Most of our present life-line systems such as cooking, Domestic electricity supply, fuels for transportation etc. are based on the fossil fuels. Coal, oil and natural gas are the three different forms of fossil fuels that are widely used. Large-scale use of fossil fuels started since the Industrial Revolution. Today, these are the most cheap sources of energy available for the use of both personal as well as commercial purposes.

  • Petroleum & Natural Gas are used to fuel our vehicles.

  • Natural gas & Fire-wood are used for cooking

  • Coal & Natural Gas are used to produce Electricity

In today’s climate of growing energy needs and increasing environmental concern, alternatives to the use of non-renewable and polluting fossil fuels have to be investigated. Increase in usage of solar power based technologies results in....

  • Rreducing green house gas emissions

  • Reducing dependency on exhaustible natural resources

  • Eenergy saving

  • Better bright lighting at low prices.
