The Future of Power
As the demand for energy increases throughout the world, so does the demand for new power technologies and forms of renewable energy to help supply power for the planet.  Fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas have limited sources; and as they are depleted, it is necessary to look to other alternative energy sources for cleaner and more abundant forms of power.  Some alternatives include biofuels, fuel cells, oceanic energy, wind, and solar power.  Nuclear power is also increasing in demand; however, their are still barriers and questions regarding the safety of such power supplies.  The following feature article discusses what the future of power generation might look like as many countries try to find new forms of energy that are efficient as well as safe for our environment.   
As the demand for power is growing nearly exponentially,  new forms of renewable energy are being researched and developed in hopes of addressing the increasing need for energy throughout the world.
