ABSTRACT
The article reports on the future demands and challenges of creating a diverse, secure and affordable energy supply, and the role that technology innovation plays in fulfilling this demand through renewable energy production. It is estimated that by 2050 an additional twenty terawatts of energy will be required to meet the needs of the billions of people in the world. Some of the possible sources of energy being considered are solar energy, wind energy, and geothermal energy. The technical challenges to the development of renewable energy are also discussed.
