Renewable energy: a term most of us have heard of at least once and maybe are in the process of implementing into our homes and businesses through domestic solar panels and electric vehicles. Renewable energy was first introduced through hydroelectric power in the 1800s, followed by solar power near the end of the century. Countries leading the way in the development and implementation of renewable energy are the United States, Kenya, Island Nations, Portugal, and Spain.
Renewable energy is inexhaustible, meaning that it can continuously renew so long as the sources such as the sun, wind, and tides are still in existence. If renewable energy is not implemented and the human population continues to rely on fossil-fuel-burning energy sources, dystopian novels could become a reality as climate change worsens.
Renewable energy produces electricity without producing greenhouse gasses, unlike energy sourced from coal and oil, which not only produce greenhouse gasses in their manufacturing and use, but can have devastating environmental consequences in their extraction and distribution processes, such as ocean spills and gas explosions.
Enter Blue Planet Alliance, based in Hawaii, which is leading the way in the global development of the energy transition, placing the focus on the future and not the past. And they are achieving this through the individuals who will inherit the future, our youth, and the systems that create change, such as the United Nations. The organization is active in international development, has its headquarters in New York, across the street from the United Nations, and works toward the main mission in supporting the implementation and development of renewable energy.
Blue Planet Alliance is setting the global standard in renewable-energy development and is preparing to launch the first-ever renewable-energy fellowship program, which will bring select leaders and ambassadors from around the world in a formal fellowship training session to continue the global implementation process to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2045.
The organization is a nonprofit and has developed over 100 partnerships around the world in a collection of MOUs pledging commitments to the common goal of a world that uses 100% renewable energy by 2045. If environmentalists and scientists have spent the last 200 years forcing the hand for a change we all knew was needed, the tactic of Blue Planet Alliance has been to shift the focus to the ones who naturally understand the reason and importance of why we need renewable energy, and who will ultimately be in control of the global structure, decision making, and human population.
Blue Plant Alliance focuses on the development of renewable-energy sources and implementation in island nations, as islands are otherwise almost entirely dependent on imported energy sources such as oil and gas. Renewable energy gives island nations freedom, cleaner air quality, and overall improved quality of life. Renewable energy is also a very practical solution for islands with many of them having access to high-wind zones, tides, and other natural sources of energy.
Many of the most populated island nations are located south of the equator, making it possible to maximize the use of solar and geothermal energy. The list of benefits goes on and it is not stopping anytime soon. In fact, the race toward the total implementation of renewable energy is stronger than ever after a period of relative quietness in the sector over the past 30 years during the height of fossil-fuel development.
We can assume the reemergence of the electric vehicle to be one of the biggest hallmarks that renewable energy has returned in full force and on the mainstream market almost 200 years after the first bio-ethanol-powered engine was created in 1826 by German inventor Nicolaus Otto, followed by the first electric diesel engine in 1890 by William Marrison of Des Moines, Iowa, USA.
To date, Blue Planet Alliance has made dozens of presentations at UN events, and is preparing for the next major global event on climate change, COP28 Dubai (Nov 30-Dec 12). The presence and impact of Blue Planet Alliance is expected to grow as they continue to set the global standard for achieving 100% renewable energy by 2045.
