  Benefits of Using Green Power Conventional electricity can be a significant source of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Switching to green power can help improve the environmental profile of your electricity use, while also providing other valuable benefits. Using green power helps to:    Support renewable energy development (either directly or indirectly)    Reduce the carbon footprint associated with your purchased electricity    Hedge against future electricity price increases and volatility (certain products) For organizational users, green power can:    Serve as a brand differentiator    Generate customer, investor, or stakeholder loyalty and employee pride    Create positive publicity and enhance your organization's public image    Demonstrate civic leadership To learn more about different green power supply options, please visit the Green Power Supply Options Web page.    Below are some relevant webinars hosted by EPA on green power.

In a world where manufacturing plays a vital role in the growth of a   country’s economy, it is important to have sustainable energy sources. Energy gives   a system the ability to perform work, and without it, many industries cannot function.   What is Green Energy?     Green energy  is energy that can be harnessed without harming the environment in   a major way. It is environment-friendly and powers different systems while releasing   very little or no toxic substances into the atmosphere.   Green energy  can also be defined as renewable energy since it is not exhausted at   the source. It is sustainable energy that can be used by generations to come.   Green energy is referred to as clean energy due to the lack of negative impacts on   the environment. It is one of the alternative energy sources that has been given   special focus by governments and different international organizations in a bid to   keep the planet clean.   Green energy is also sometimes referred to the energy obtained from the processing   of waste materials in an attempt to make the environment cleaner . Such materials   pollute the environment by increasing the amount of waste matter and toxic   substances on the surface of the earth. Examples of waste matter used to produce   energy include sewage, animal waste, municipal solid waste, industrial wastes, and   sugar industry wastes. Most of these waste materials are used to produce biogas as   a form of green energy. By processing the waste matter and using them to provide   energy, the environment is made cleaner. Many countries and leading   environmental organizations have identified waste management as a significant step   towards cleaning the world and having sustainable energy.   Green energy can only be a primary source of energy for industries and homes   around the world when these key issues are taken into consideration:       A change in culture where very person strives to have a cleaner planet.      Crafting effective government policies to promote a green planet.     Collaborative efforts by different stakeholders to increase the use of green   energy and reduce environmental pollution.      Reducing the amount of energy consumed by industries and homes and   limiting adverse impacts of harnessing energy.      Using technology to compliment the green energy sources.    Also read: Renewable Energy Sources: Meaning, Advantages and Disadvantages   Examples of Green Energy: Examples of green energy include solar   energy, geothermal energy, biomass power, anaerobic digestion, wind energy, wave   power, and some types of  nuclear power. All these examples of green energy can   power different systems without polluting the environment or harming it significantly.   Most of them also occur through natural processes. For example, sunlight, when   harnessed will give us solar energy without damaging the planet because the   process is natural does not emit any toxic wastes that might harm the environment.   The same can be said about wind energy and wave power.   Importance of Green Energy     1. Renewable, sustainable, and dependable:  Green energy will not run out   because it naturally replenishes. Fossil fuels can get depleted but green energy, on   the other hand, is renewable and can be used for years to come without the fear of   having it exhausted. As long as the sun keeps shining, solar energy will be available.   It is a sustainable and almost infinite source of energy that also provides energy   security for nations.   2. Alternative form of energy:  Green energy reduces the dependence that   countries have on fossil fuels. Relying on fossil fuel to power industries can have   negative implications due to the absence of energy security. Wars and geopolitical   tensions can lead to the disruption of oil production and create a shortfall in supply.   Green energy provides consumers with alternative energy sources. It protects them   from exploitation by monopolies that supply power to citizens. In countries where   power interruptions are common, using green energy sources would provide a   steady supply of power and energy   3. Environmental-friendly:  Threats of global warming and climate change are real,   and their effects are adverse. Scientists have been able to prove that climate   change is not a myth but a reality. It is, therefore, important to prevent this   phenomenon and keep the planet safer. Green energy results in less pollution and   has minimal negative effects on the environment. It reduces the amount of   greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere and minimizes the greenhouse   effect. Going green would thus mitigate the effects of global warming and climate   change.
