ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the fossil fuels and the renewable energy sources. An assessment of the renewable sources of energy shows that none of them can be developed with power densities approaching those possible for the fossil fuels. Some of the concerns that are neglected repeatedly are extracting, processing, moving, and using energy, or the power densities of energy production and consumption. Researcher have pointed out that the power density of an energy system is one of the most crucial parameters that should be considered. The factors that should be considered are power densities, disposal of waste heat and its effect on climate.
