More than 85% of the world’s current energy needs are met through fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. Demand for energy is projected to increase primarily in developing countries that are beginning to drive more cars and use more electricity. While there is enough fossil fuels supply for several more decades, what will happen when it starts running low? There are ways to reduce waste and use existing technologies to keep the air cleaner by reducing fossil fuels emissions. Expansion of all economic energy sources will be required: coal, nuclear, biomass, other Renewables, unconventional oil and natural gas. Options like these are part of a concept called energy sustainability.

Energy sustainability is about finding the balance between a growing economy, the need for environmental protection and social responsibilities in order to provide an improved quality of life for current and future generations. In short, it is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future.

Energy sustainability can inspire technical innovation with an environmentally conscious mindset. Renewable resources such as sunlight, wind and biomass provide a source of sustainable energy. This includes biofuels like ethanol, which is created from crops like corn or sugarcane.

Regulations designed to reduce air, water and waste emissions from energy-related activities such as coal mining and electricity generation also help with energy sustainability, as do people who conserve energy.

Energy investments are especially appealing to high end industry consumers as they can provide great savings by reducing drastically their electrical bills and providing a steady, free electricity supply for an elongated time period. In addition, energy investments contribute significantly in the environment friendly image of local industries something that is important in the new green world era.
