Currently, the world is concerningly reliant on fossil fuels to meet energy needs. This is an increasingly detrimental situation, as these fossil fuels are nearing depletion, and once we get to that unfortunate stage, we will have no option but to turn to renewable energy sources. 

Considering this future scenario, we need to begin harvesting and using renewable energy sources now rather than continue senseless and extravagant consumption of fossil fuels.

We brought in the experts to discuss why renewable energy is important.

According to Janet Coleman from

Renewable energy is important because it does not produce any greenhouse gasses. We are currently destroying our ozone layer, which protects us from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. If we continue to use non-renewable energy sources, then there will be nothing that protects us from the harmful rays of the sun.

The demand for energy has increased over the years and will continue to increase because renewable energy reduces dependence on fossil fuels and improves the environment. Renewable energy includes solar, wind, and hydroelectric power. These sources of energy do not pollute the environment, and they are very clean compared to conventional energy. Renewable energy will help save our planet because it is a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear reactors.

Renewable energy is important for many reasons. One of the most important is that it helps reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Oil is a limited resource, and using more of it causes air pollution and depletes fossil fuels. Another reason renewable energy is important is that it reduces greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which causes global warming. 

Renewable energy is the future, and the world is moving towards it. The option of renewable energy is quite popular all across the globe. Most people are taking an interest in solar panels and wind farms to reduce their carbon footprints. Renewable energy systems are undoubtedly cheaper than fossil fuels in the long run, but they are more expensive in the short term.

It helps the environment. Using renewable energy in our daily lives—making use of solar panels, windmills, and geothermal plants—reduces our carbon footprint. In addition, we can be able to live sustainably without having to rely on fossil fuels. Imagine breathing fresh, clean air wherever you go with no black smoke from factories in sight. 

Too good to be true, right? But make no mistake that it is fast becoming possible, especially now that the International Energy Agency reported that the world’s renewable energy capacity jumped 45% in 2020.

Non-renewable energy is a substantial source of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere, which is bad for the climate and the atmosphere in general. Renewable sources of energy have little to no carbon footprint when put to use, keeping Earth from harm. 

Non-renewable energy sources also emit high amounts of air pollutants. Research has shown that in urban cities, this asphyxiation by toxic pollutants in the atmosphere is the reason behind millions of premature deaths. Renewable sources must be used to minimize the damage dealt by the use of fossil fuels.

Renewable energy will never run out. The fact of the matter is that eventually, non-renewable energy sources are bound to run out one day. Before that happens, it’s important to make the shift to renewable sources so that the need never arises to deplete the Earth’s resources like that.

Renewable energy is also super affordable. In fact, there are cases when installing solar panels on your roof can actually generate enough electricity to cover your monthly bill and still manage to save you some money on the side. It’s a slightly expensive initial expense that leads to a world of saving afterward.

Renewable energy is a form of clean, inexhaustible, and more competitive source of energy. Crucial contributors to the renewable source of energy are Wind, Solar, Hydroelectricity, Biomass, Geothermal, Tidal, Biodiesel, Etc.

The importance of Renewable Energy (RE);

In the US, RE plays a principal role in controlling the energy crises and reducing the greenhouse effect. The development of clean energy is necessary for combating significant issues like climate change and limited fossil fuel use. With the high use of RE, there is a decrease in air and water pollution. It is beneficial for the environment and us.

RE promotes the development of the economy by creating jobs in the field of mechanical, electrical, manufacturing, installation, and more.  RE comes at low and affordable prices. With this, everyone can avail it.

Renewable energy is important because it will play a vital role in the future of the US and international energy portfolios. As nonrenewable energy sources become less and less reliable (and scarcer and scarcer), renewables will fill in those gaps and reliably provide vital energy supply long into the future.

Renewables will also have a huge positive impact on the future of the planet’s environmental health. Renewables produce far less carbon and other pollution than fossil fuels. This will reduce air and water pollution, as well as slow or reverse the catastrophic impacts of climate change. 

Also, renewables provide an opportunity to diversify and disperse the energy production of communities and nations. 

By producing energy through diverse means, it essentially prevents us from putting all our eggs in one basket (fossil fuels). It also allows energy to be produced where it is needed (solar panels placed on buildings or near/in communities that need it), which also has the added benefit of being more secure and less vulnerable to targeted attacks.
