  • 34 Page(s)

The paper identifies and provides an overview of the common energy sources generally available to us that are capable of meeting a substantial fraction of our energy and electricity requirements. Perspective on energy sources is provided by a detailed comparison of the major sources of energy as well as some minor potential sources of energy. The detailed comparisons - assuming that there is equal access to all of the energy sources - show their relative advantages, disadvantages, strengths, weaknesses, environmental impacts, costs and safety, as well as estimated reserves, energy densities and resource lives.
