How to Make the Energy Transition Sustainable

One of the main goals we have as a society nationally as well as globally, is finding a source of clean and renewable energy. In order to achieve these goals, there must be access to sufficient resources and materials. New technologies such as wind turbines, solar panels, and electric car batteries must be efficient as well as recyclable, otherwise they will impose the same issues as fossil fuels. In order to make these new green technologies truly sustainable, they must become recyclable. It is important to ensure that after these materials served their purpose and met the life expectancy, that they do not cause environmental issues or problems.

Wind turbines and solar panels also have waste products. It is important to effectively manage the technology’s full life cycle. Transitioning from using fossil fuels to a lower carbon emissions rate requires a large amount of resources. Countries and nations that are looking to shift into a greener and more environmental friendly energy, must increase the materials which they use to manufacture said technologies.

Recycling Revolution

The recycling revolution is the last step in finding and maintaining the energy transition. It is important to take into account this aspect. Waste to energy is an important concept in the sustainability of energy. Non-recyclable materials must be properly disposed and treated accordingly. Creating a circular economy and making sure no raw materials are wasted is the most important aspect in sustainability.

In order to achieve the goal of obtaining and creating an environmental friendly energy, proper recycling and waste management must be achieved. In order to have sustainable energy there also must be an appropriate amount of materials available. Obtaining a clean and renewable energy is possible, but many steps and actions must be taken to accomplish this goal. Having a world with more efficient energy would go a long way in eliminating environmental issues.
