It’s the talk in town among environmentalists to ensure that we practice safe technologies that save the planet.
The recent climatic changes experienced across the globe are as a result of human activities and the industrial revolution.
Portland Clean Energy Initiative is one such platform that comes in handy to educate the public on the dos and don’ts to save the environment.
They support and advocate for renewable energy sources, which is a sure bet when it comes to matters of environmentally-friendly energy systems.
Any energy technology that doesn’t put pressure on natural resources is considered safe. Safety is viewed as a package from mining, installation, and emission of gases including disposal.
The only technology that fits this definition is the non-renewable source of energy. They include
- Solar energy
- Wind energy
- Fossil fuel
- Hydro energy
- Geothermal energy
Any time people talk about saving the planet, then a tree never misses in that speech. Trees play a significant role in completing the hydrological cycle.
This initiative comes in handy to advocate for alternative use of other energy sources to save our trees- a precious commodity in Portland.
The table saw you have at home is an enemy to the conservation and preservation of our planet.
What are the features of safe energy technology?
- It’s clean
Once you choose to install an energy source, have a look at the number of emissions it emits to the atmosphere.
How safe is it to both the human and physical environment? That is the definition of clean energy.
In case it has emissions, which is inevitable, then you need to have a safe disposal measure certified by the ministry of environment in Portland.
- Flexible in performance and functionality
A good and safe energy technology needs to be dynamic when it comes to performance. Static energy technology has a negative effect, especially when you need to make changes in the functions and protocols.
- Has a minimal environmental impact
The reason why most of the energy companies run an environmental impact assessment before the commencement of a project is to check on the negative and positive effects of the technology.
In case the negatives are more than the positives, the project will not pass all the environmental certifications.
If vice versa is the scenario; then that’s a project that’s worth the effort, money, and time.
That’s the oversight role of environmental initiatives in Portland.
4. Puts less pressure on the environment
Whatever the energy source, you need to check if it has pressure on the resource.
These are some of the questions that come in handy to give you the necessary guidance when running due diligence on the same include
Does the help have the capacity to sustain the project? What of the disposal systems have you put in place?
How will you manage the environmental impact in case of closure? When mining the energy resource, are there other challenges that affect the physical environment?
5. It’s renewable
Emissions are not issues to environmentalists. The big question is the amount and the type of gases you emit. Some gases have no impact on the ozone layer- What we strive to protect at all times. The energy of choice shouldn’t produce greenhouse energy sources at all costs. The environmental measures go a step further to look at any form of pollution and in specific air pollution. The leading cause of the emission of greenhouse gases is too much dependence on fossil fuels.
It puts pressure on it to an extent you have no option but to close down for lack of more raw materials to mind. Safe energy technology is a choice for both individuals and the government as long as they work in partnership.
Good collaboration prevents a tug of war kind of work relationship for the benefit of the environment.
