LONDON, June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
The events of the past year have seen a remarkable transition in mindset towards our future energy use. All over the globe, renewable and sustainable energy sources are now being considered an essential acquisition as opposed to merely desirable as previously considered.
Already there have been some encouraging examples of how new technology can be utilised to best effect. The Itaipu hydroelectric damn on the border of Paraguay and Brazil contributes to almost 20 percent of Brazil's electricity needs and around 90 percent of Paraguay's. Elsewhere countries are equally making use of their available resources; wind power is gaining popularity across Europe, while the US and the Middle East are starting to adopt large-scale solar projects to make use of their sunny climates.
While a change of mindset partly explains the rise in adoption of renewable energy sources, much more can be attributed to the companies developing and improving the technologies that ensure a more carbon-friendly future for energy production. Through the Clean Tech & New Energy Awards 2011, The New Economy recognises the companies that are guiding the energy future in the right direction.
