Slow isn't always steady
Why are we not embracing alternative energies faster?
People have burned fuel for heat and light since man discovered fire. Coal, oil and natural gas have since powered incredible industrialisation and development but at the expense of the environment.
Cleaner and more sustainable alternatives are available today, such as wind, solar, hydro and biomass. At a time when nations are looking to balance the Energy Trilemma (the triumvirate of energy security, energy equity and environmental sustainability), alternative energies should theoretically help them satisfy the third prong, environmental sustainability. But in practice, the uptake of alternative energies is slower than it could be. What is impeding the progress?
