Energy has powered the advancement of civilizations and the growth of technology throughout history -- from the nonrenewable energy sources that helped to power the Industrial Revolution to the utilization of renewable energy sources. Discover what green energy is, and learn about its potential to meet our energy needs in an ongoing, sustainable way. Green energy includes solar power, wind turbines, biomass fuels and much more. Some forms of green energy are more suited to certain locations than others. Observe how geothermal energy helps to power much of Reykjavik, Iceland, and see elements of green energy, sustainable design and conservation in action at the headquarters of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in Maryland. From the choices and efforts of an individual to that of an entire city, rethinking where we get our energy and how we use it is important in ensuring that energy needs of future generations will be met.
