Electricity consumption is increasing on a global level. In 2017, non-renewable energy sources such as crude oil, natural gas and coal provided 76% of the required energy, while 24% came from renewable sources such as hydro, wind and solar. Non-renewable sources are finite because they do not replenish rapidly enough relative to the rate at which they are being used, and harvesting these resources is environmental costly. Since renewable energy sources replenish naturally in a relatively short period of time and are cleaner, they are suitable for the sustainable production of electricity...
