While solar power will be an important component of the energy sector, the future will be much more complex than most imagine. Greener Ideal presents five technologies that could play significant roles in generating energy during the next five decades.
One of them being Thorium, on which they write”Thorium has been shown to be a viable tool for nuclear plants, but no commercial plants are currently operating. The abundance of thorium, however, may encourage companies to begin testing thorium plants in the coming decades.”
The future of energy generation is inherently difficult to predict as it is impossible to fully determine what new technologies will become available. Despite this, experts are fairly certain that solar, wind and geothermal energy will be used to supplement more traditional methods of energy generation. While people will use more energy in 50 years, the total output of carbon dioxide may drop significantly.
