Abstract
The energy needs of the world are increasing every day, and the state in which we rely on the energy potential of fossil fuels such as coal, oil or gas is completely unsustainable. The rate at which oil is consumed is absurd. It makes a large part of fossil fuel cakes, but for each barrel of oil which is found to be consumed eight barrel. In the era of industrial revolution, the use of fossil fuels has increased rapidly as a initiator of changes. Considering that we live in a modern society where one of the imperatives represents new ways of obtaining energy, it is time to take responsibility for own actions and explore alternate ways of obtaining energy which can be collectively referred to call a Green energy. The term Green energy refers to all renewable energy sources. These are sources that can not be exhausted and give pure energy without the harmful consequences on the environment and our health. The aim of this paper is to briefly explain to readers what the production of new forms of energy means for the whole economy and what will happen if any form of environmental pollution occurs.
